Finding a therapist can be daunting, but a therapist who immediately puts you at ease can set the stage for a healthy therapeutic relationship. I bring to my clients over 20 years of experience as a board-certified advanced practice nurse psychotherapist. I endeavor to help every new client feel comfortable. Once a safe and supportive environment is created, I use my experience and training to help my clients work toward change.
My goal is to help my clients achieve better self-awareness and deeper self-understanding. We'll work together understand how the past affects the present, and how you can make meaningful changes to grow toward your future goals. I am warm and interactive, and provide support and feedback in a judgment-free environment.
My training as a nurse means I can integrate the bio-psycho-social aspects of a client's life in order to better understand how these interact to affect his or her well-being. This holistic approach respects the connection between mind and body.
I work with issues related to stress management, relationship dynamics and the complex emotional processes that happen in those who have been diagnosed with serious medical conditions. People often need help integrating the complexities of their situations and conditions into their daily lives. For those with medical diagnoses, I'll work closely with your doctor to help you get the best treatment possible, advocate for your needs, reduce stress, understand the disease process, and regain control of your life.
