My Approach to Helping

Life is full of challenges and I want to help you navigate these. You may have suffered significant loss, acute or chronic health condition, or stressors in your relationship(s), work, or school. Whatever brings you to seek therapy, I work with my patients, where they are at, so you can feel better and start thriving.

I have trained across the nation, which gives me a unique lens in which to support my clients. Given my expertise, I utilize thoughtful values-based discussion, exploration of problematic patterns, and adaptive strategies to manage psychological distress. I emphasize the value of the protected space within psychotherapy and the therapeutic environment.

I appreciate the challenges that have impacted each individual and work to collaboratively identify a treatment plan that works for each client. I understand traditional work schedules can be a significant barrier to accessing care and therefore offer session times after business hours and on weekends.

More Info About My Practice

I keep my practice small so that I can get patients in quickly, often within a few weeks of contacting me. Patient's need access to services when they are ready, not after several months on a waitlist. I highly value the ability to leverage technology so that patients can be seen in a space that feels comfortable and easily accessible. This allows you to carve out the time for therapy on your schedule. Therapy with me is driven by authentic, empathic discussion to foster rapport and ultimately therapeutic success. Schedule a no-cost consultation by calling me, using the contact details, or scheduling through my website so we can talk about feeling better or optimizing your wellness.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy is aimed at relieving distress, supporting wellness, and improving overall quality of life. I take an approach which begins with shared goal setting which aims to address concerns in a measured way and periodic updates regarding your progress. Ultimately, a client translates the work in a therapy session to their daily life in a successful manner resulting in less distress and overall improved symptom management.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

Therapy can be hard work and it takes a lot of courage and strength to acknowledge these challenges and begin working through them. The client and I partner on this rewarding journey. This process of healing can have some growing pains as we discuss your particular experiences, but often, in working with me, this leads to greater insight, improved distress tolerance, and improved symptoms. Concerns may be regarding a less than stellar experience with another professional or a provider with whom they had a wonderful connection with but have now had to re-establish care. Every therapeutic relationship is unique and different and I love to learn from my clients what has worked well for them so that we can leverage this experience and integrate it into our work.
