My Approach to Helping

Good psychotherapy requires a "match" between client(s) and therapist and avoids "stretching the client to fit the couch." Finding the right psychotherapist involves both clinical skill and personality match. A good therapist is genuine, warm, and offers a human relationship with guidance and good advice. What I offer as a clinician is an active style of psychotherapy with a high regard for where you are in your journey, what your goals are, and what things can be pointed out and changed along the path to growth and improved relationships. As a Marriage & Family Therapist, I work with individuals, couples and families providing child, adolescent and adult psychotherapy. My approach is inclusive of Eastern and Western thought, and includes the fields of neuropsychology, neurolinguistics, emotional and cognitive intelligence, and communication skills. I have extensive training in the fields of bereavement, terminal and chronic illness. Although my graduate specialty included child and adolescent therapy in my family training, I enjoy working with a range of ages and problems.

More Info About My Practice

Touchstone Counseling, PLLC is telehealth only during the COVID pandemic. Please call with any questions. I am in-network with many major health plans and Employee Assistance programs. If I am not a provider with your plan, and you have out-of-network benefits, I am happy to provide you a bill to submit to your plan. When you call, you will likely reach my voicemail. Please do leave me a message, as I am more than likely working with a client like you when you call. I don't interrupt my sessions. I try and make my call backs before the end of the work week. Do leave me several ways to reach you. Once in a while it takes me longer to call you back, but I will return your call. Please be sure to let me know if I can leave a voicemail, otherwise I will not and will simply try again to reach you and please speak clearly so I can understand your message. I look forward to speaking with you!
