Talking about problems related to life's challenges with a therapist can help you identify and manage emotions, clarify your 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. There is nothing more gratifying than seeing someone grow in therapy such that they feel happier and more confident in their personal and professional lives.

More Info About My Practice

I am a partner in Sage Counseling, LLC and practice with two other experienced colleagues who are also licensed clinical social workers. 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 substance use, including drugs and alcohol; anxiety, depression and grief and loss. I have worked in Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) and outpatient mental health and substance use facilities. I specialize in working with people to curtail or eliminate marijuana use and also work with people with compulsive gambling problems.

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.
