My Approach to Helping

I use video therapy to support people struggling with depression and anxiety. I hear my clients describe feeling overwhelmed or stuck. I hear them talk about waking up with tightness in their chest and a weight in their stomach. Do you feel exhausted and unable to engage with others? Do you feel like you want to connect, but are overcome with shame, worry, or guilt that you are a burden to others? You feel isolated and alone, and then judge yourself for those feelings.

I work to help clients overcome stress, anxiety, and self-doubt so that they can author their own stories with purpose and vision. You deserve to have control over your life. I can help you feel motivated and focused. I can help you find inspiration and joy. Our work includes three steps. We first acknowledge your difficulties and needs. We then cultivate strategies for achieving your goals. Then finally, we support you to bring your vision to life.

I like to use videotherapy, because it is convenient for my clients. You can choose a comfortable, safe, and relaxed setting for our sessions. Feeling comfortable and in control makes it easier for you to focus and open up. An added bonus is that you don't have to spend any thought on the inconveniences of traffic, driving distances, or traveling schedules.

One of the most important factors in therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. Let?s explore whether we are a good fit and then get started. Call me to schedule a free 15-minute consultation.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

One of the most important things in therapy is acknowledging that things could be better. If you are thinking about starting therapy, you have already started this process. The next step is to identify "how" things can be better. We will acknowledge what is keeping you back, what you need, and what you want. We will use that information to identify the strategies that you need to reach your goals and accomplish your vision.

What Makes up a Problem?

An engineer friend of mine says "there are no difficult jobs, just wrong tools for the job." A problem is trying to reach your goals without the right skills and strategies: trying to manage anxiety by hoping it will go away, trying to survive depression by staying away from people, or trying to strengthen a relationship by only pointing out what?s wrong. Sometimes our goals have outgrown strategies that, up to that point, have worked fine, so we need to develop new ones. Sometimes we need to develop the skills and strategies from the ground up - we need to identify the missing piece and the skill or strategy that is the best fit for what we are facing.
