My Approach to Helping

Symptoms of anxiety or depression can be debilitating and get in the way of your happiness. Sometimes friends and family just don't "get it" or simply lack the know-how to help you get past it. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I work with adolescents and adults to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, unlearn self-criticism, develop healthy boundaries, and build meaningful lives.

Young adults are a special area of clinical focus for me. You may be wrestling with your career, your relationships, or family pressures as you are trying to create the next chapter of your life. We will explore how to overcome obstacles that may be in the way of launching into the life you want.

When we work together, you will find my counseling office to be a safe space to talk about your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. We will collaborate to pinpoint what's at the core of your difficulties and how to best resolve them. We may find that unhelpful thinking or behaviors are at play and we'll work to identify better, more effective ways to manage.

Helping you heal, grow, and move on with living a more satisfying life is what I find most rewarding as a therapist. To learn more about working together, call or email me to set up a free 15-minute phone consultation. If we find that I'm a good fit, we can then schedule our first appointment.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

Studies have shown, time and again, that the relationship between client and therapist is the key to determining positive outcomes for therapy. This is what guides me every time I invite an individual into my counseling office. Trust, compassion, respect, and non-judgment make up the foundation of my psychotherapy practice. I take great care to listen carefully and follow a path of treatment that seems right for each individual client. This allows for a strong relationship to form and progress to be made.
