My Approach to Helping
My hope as a therapist is to create a space where you can be at ease and explore the possibility in your life. I bring authenticity, warmth, and curiosity into my work so that you can comfortably challenge the habits, both in thought and action, that are holding you back.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I love that I get to relate to people and have interesting, meaningful conversations every day. I enjoy finding ways to put words into actions, using compassion and curiosity to discover, alongside my clients, areas of their lives where they can influence change.
My Therapy Focus
I integrate evidence-based practices, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, with principles from strengths-based, narrative, and feminist therapies to develop treatment plans that are both client-centered and based in sound research. I have been told that my presence is one of warmth and humor that puts others at ease. I value authenticity and I believe this comes through in my work with clients. I aim to establish a relationship of trust and collaboration so you can safely experiment with new ways of approaching your challenges. I hope you come away from our work with renewed confidence and intentionality in your actions.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
I find it's generally best to start out with weekly sessions, at least for the first month or two that we meet. The duration of therapy that I offer depends on each individual's needs and can range from just a handful of focused sessions to long-term ongoing support.
