My Approach to Helping

I am looking for a client that is struggling with some life issues and wants a professional to help him or her see what might be going on. Life is hard and if you are seeking help for mental health, you are strong and resilient. I would like to be able to help you by listening, understanding and forming a treatment plan of your goals . We can also do screenings to see if you have a certain diagnosis such as depression or anxiety. Let’s work together to see what we find together.

More Info About My Practice

Whether you are having a difficult time at work, with your family or in life in general, I'll be here to listen. I work with people that want to delve into relationship dynamics. Are you having problems with your spouse, siblings or children? Let's talk about it. Are you still disturbed by childhood trauma? Has your childhood affected your life today? I will try to help you gain insight into your past so that you can take action for the future. I work with adult males, females, non-binary, transgender, homosexual, asexual, pansexual+. I also work with people that are struggling with use of illegal substances. I can screen for substance abuse and provide therapy around progress in minimizing usage. Lastly, I work with people that are going to court and need to show their treatment notes to prove progress in treatment. I have a "telehealth only" practice as of right now. This is so that you can stay conveniently and safe in your own home. I use hipaa compliant zoom for our meetings.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love being a psychotherapist because I want YOU to get to the root of your problem. I want YOU to tell me after we have searched for answers, what the next steps are. Therapy is about YOU and about how much YOU are willing to understand about your own self. Do you have barriers up? Are you afraid to tell the truth about what might be going on. Is the truth buried deep in your mind and waiting to be unleashed? Let's find out.
