My Approach to Helping

It is my honor to help you on your journey. My role is to be supportive in helping you develop your goals for therapy including what it will look and feel like to be done. Each person is the expert of their life and I can aid in showing possible patterns of when things might have gone a little off target.

I like to provide people with options for deciding what they want to work on and how they want to heal. It is my utmost concern to provide a safe place to experiment with those options and decide if they are successful or need some redirection. In general, everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy their life and to feel good about their life and relationships.

More Info About My Practice

I am currently on a few insurance panels through Headway and I will provide documentation for you to submit to your insurance. My fees are $120 per hour.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am skilled at working with grief & life transitions and have both extensive training as well as personal life experience with loss and unexpected life changes. I am trained and skilled at working with Trauma & Critical Incident Stress Management. I have lived experience with bicultural relationships, blended families, multigenerational households, and the impact of religion on one's life.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

If somebody isn't sure about therapy they should interview a few therapists and see if one fits best. Each person would hopefully feel comforted and challenged so if it doesn't seem right at first maybe give one more sessionconversation but then advocate for yourself and find someone who does fit. There are no silly questions, so ask away, and if someone gives an answer that doesn't feel right it's totally acceptable to not choose them.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Therapists are all different, including why they go into the field, what type of therapy they use, how they are in the room, etc. We are not all going to fit and that is ok. Hopefully, the negative experience wasn't so terrible that you suffered more mental health difficulties. You deserve to have a positive experience and I believe there is a therapist for everyone.
