My Approach to Helping
I’m a licensed clinical psychologist with a strong commitment to providing high-quality individualized mental health care to adults. I offer both individual and group psychotherapy. I enjoy working with a diverse range of people, ages, and issues. I bring specialized training and experience in working with young professionals, people struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse and relationship challenges. If you’d like to learn more about how I’d work with you or have any questions about starting therapy, please email or call me for a free phone consultation.
Life can be difficult, even overwhelming at times. Many people, at some point in their lives, will find themselves attempting to cope with problems like depression, anxiety, stress, grief, difficult transitions and problems in their relationships with others. Some forms of suffering can be acute; you may feel like you are experiencing a crisis and are looking for immediate relief. Other challenges may have been present for a long time and might benefit from a more patient approach to care. Individual psychotherapy can help you with both.
As an important first step, therapy offers a safe and supportive relationship that is deeply rooted in trust and respect. After this necessary step has been taken, therapy can take different paths. One path may be helping you tackle symptoms head-on while developing the tools to cope more effectively, for instance by learning how better to regulate your emotions. Another path may include learning more about yourself and how you relate to others, for instance why it can be difficult to feel close to important people in your life. I will help you design a treatment plan that best suits your individualized treatment goals.
