My Approach to Helping

TELEMEDICINE AVAILABLE. Are you struggling with a major life change? Is adolescence a little more turbulent than expected? No matter what obstacles you may face, it is my mission to help you feel less alone in your process. I feel that it is vital to the emotional wellness of a person to work to overcome obstacles, develop healthy coping methods, and experience noticeable growth and progress on a personalized level. In office, we strive to use eclectic modalities and research-based approaches that promote self-awareness, use of effective communication skills, and achievement of personal goals. Therapy is more than just spoken word; it is a meaningful process of learning about the self. I value offering my clients a safe place to express themselves using a wide array of media from art to music and back to dialogue. When you feel ready to become the change you envision, I would be humbled to help you get there.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Attending therapy is an act of bravery. It takes a lot to bring anyone to admitting that something's just not working out. I like to praise that initial effort. In hopes of easing any hesitation, I try my best to keep a casual and comfy environment for my clients to relax and freely express themselves. Additionally, change can offer its own set of worries and the intimidation factor. While therapy does aim to support positive change, rest assured, goals in my office are a conversation, never an imposition. The process of improvement is on your terms unconditionally.
