My Approach to Helping

I believe in therapy that is collaborative, satisfying and supportive. I enjoy working with people to address life's challenges by helping them identify and manage emotions, clarify their thinking, and build healthy ways to cope. I integrate psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and solution-focused therapy according to your needs and goals for therapy. I bring a broad range of life experiences and a practical approach to therapy drawing from my professional, personal, and educational background. I provide a non-judgmental and caring atmosphere so that you can feel safe in speaking about the most difficult topics with candor and safety. There is nothing more gratifying than watching you grow through therapy so that you feel happier and more confident personally and professionally.

More Info About My Practice

I am a partner in Sage Counseling, LLC and practice with another experienced colleague who is also a licensed clinical social worker. As a practice, we believe that therapy should be both high-quality and affordable. We also believe that anyone can benefit from talking with a therapist when life presents change and challenge.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am experienced working with people struggling with depression and anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, and women's issues. I have worked in several mental health and substance use facilities.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

Our brains are shaped by our past and current experiences and sometimes they get 'stuck' in ways that keep us from having the life and relationships that we want. Talking with a skilled and supportive therapist engages you and creates lasting changes to your brain in how you think, feel and act so you can develop healthier ways of living. Hundreds of research studies show that regardless of the type of therapy used in sessions that a collaborative relationship between you and your therapist - called the therapeutic alliance - is the most important factor in successful treatment. This means that the most effective aspect of therapy is a trusting, positive working relationship between you and your therapist. Given the importance of this relationship, do talk with several therapists either over the phone or in person to find someone who you feel comfortable with before committing to regular appointments.
