My Approach to Helping

I blend evidence-based mental health strategies with transparency, humor and lots of patience and encouragement. Starting therapy doesn't need to feel scary or difficult! We will begin with a free consultation call to make sure we're a good fit for achieving the goals you have in mind for yourself. Not sure what your "goal" is? That's okay too. Don't feel that you need to have the "correct" words or phrasing in session. Just be you, share as you would with a trusted friend, and I'll provide the rest. We can jump right in or take things slowly. I will ask about and follow your lead throughout our work because you're the expert on your life and the people who have been in it. I will teach you an array of coping skills, lead you through guided meditation or somatization, listen closely to find the blind spots and repeating patterns that have been keeping you stuck.

More Info About My Practice

I currently have availability for 1:1 therapy or coping sessions, as well as group therapy offerings in 2023. To learn more, please click the link for my website.

At the moment, all services are being conducted via secure phone or video session. Physical location to resume later this year.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

For me, nothing can compare to the moment when someone realizes their true value and potential. That pivotal moment when it all clicks, and they discover that they're in control of their life, have the right to say no, can prioritize themselves while setting boundaries and moving towards a secure meaningful life.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

If you're on the fence about seeking therapy, you either had a negative experience with it in the past, heard about one or have never tried it. If you've had a negative experience, it is possible that yourself and that particular therapist were not a good match. I believe that in order for therapy to work, communication should feel comfortable, like speaking with a trusted friend. If it does not feel this way, if the therapist has no experience in the area you are seeking therapy for, or if you are feeling judged, it's time to get a new therapist! Therapy is a place to ventilate your feelings, get an objective perspective, gain coping skills for stress and negative emotions, work through problematic situations, heal from current or past trauma, and release all that no longer serves you. If you are looking for a therapist who specializes in several evidence-based therapeutic models and throws humor into the session when appropriate, you've come to the right place.
