My Approach to Helping

I believe that healing begins with being heard. The therapeutic relationship allows me to witness and attune to your experiences with acceptance and positive regard. Together in practice, we can foster internal exploration that leads to supported change. My therapeutic approach is guided by a feminist, person-in-the-environment perspective. Real wellness is grounded by insight into one's personal story, and how the language, habits, and our personal reactions influence our well-being and internal state. I offer desirable evening hours and brief-solution focused psychotherapy and behavioral intervention to clients.

I will help you refine skills that bolster mental resilience and create ease and mindful living. I keep a small practice in order to concentrate my attention on unique treatment planning specific to client needs and style. I draw on strengths-based therapy modalities that include cognitive behavioral therapy practices to encourage measurable success!

Through greater self-insight and self-compassion, we can revise meaning and move past ruts previously attributed to our experiences and self-concept. Together, we can work with evidenced-based treatments that help you live a rich and meaningful life. There is a more balanced and authentic narrative waiting for you. I look forward to hearing your story.
