More Info About My Practice

I always focus on the therapeutic relationship between my clients and myself because that is where I feel therapy happens and new, lived experiences develop.

I help my clients find meaning. I identify, address, and challenge "messed up" thinking. I explore the motivations behind certain behaviors, especially those that are causing problems in their lives, including self-doubt. Most importantly, I meet my clients where they are so that they can feel heard, seen, and connected. I am a non-judgmental witness to their process.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

My clients come to me because what they are doing isn't working. They need more support or a fresh perspective. They want to change but are struggling to make that happen. They feel stuck and don't know what to do. If you have great support and are able to make positive changes in your life, you probably don't need therapy. If the things you have tried aren't working, then therapy can be a tool to gain a greater perspective and understanding of yourself in a new way.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

It takes time to develop a therapeutic relationship, but there are a few things you can do to see if the relationship will be viable. First, I offer a free phone consultation to see if we would be a good fit. It is important to me that my clients are satisfied with the therapeutic process and I offer opportunities to discuss this. Every session we will discuss if we are on the right track and what we can do to shift if needed.

I meet my clients where they are and stand with them through their struggles, but I am direct. I will not beat around the bush. I always work in the direction set by my clients, but will not hesitate to give feedback, offer observations, and challenge old behaviors and thinking.
