My Approach to Helping

I believe in the individual?s ability to achieve growth and change. However, sometimes people need assistance to facilitate this process. In my practice, I work to create a warm and supportive therapeutic relationship.

Through this relationship, I encourage positive change, guiding families, individuals, and couples into deeper awareness of their relationships and themselves. Bringing both the present and past into the room allows clients to identify significant patterns that affect their careers, relationships, and emotional and physical well-being.

To nurture trust and co-create treatment goals, I work in a collaborative spirit. I offer you experience and education, but you and you alone are the expert on your own life. I have worked with couples and individuals from a diverse array of cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and am comfortable working with all sexual orientations, gender identities, and relationship styles (polyamorous, monogamous, open relationships, etc.) I help my clients manage anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, grief, trauma, abuse, gender and sexual identity issues, coming out, loneliness, stress at work, and life transitions.

More Info About My Practice

I do not work with any insurance company directly, but provide you with a detailed receipt you could submit your insurance company yourself. Whether therapy is new to you or you're coming back, I hope you'll consider calling me for a free phone consultation to determine if we're a good fit.

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

Sex therapy, couples therapy, work with college students, depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions, LGBT, coming out, work stress, and grief.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Therapy helps in several ways:

Providing a safe supportive environment where one can be heard and have their feelings validated.

Through therapy a person can become more aware of their own feelings and learn to connect between hisher feelings and behaviors. Thus developing the ability to make changes in their life.

By using the therapeutic relationship one can learn how they interact with others, then acquire new skills, and practice them with the therapist before trying them out "out in the world."
