My Approach to Helping
I specialize in working with youth (children, teens/adolescents, and young adults) that are seeking guidance in making positive changes in their lives. It is important to me to provide a supportive, warm, and nonjudgmental space for you to process life events and challenges. Techniques from several different counseling theories are used during our time together, based on your personality and circumstances. This allows therapy to be tailored to your needs and strengths.
I will work alongside you to overcome anxiety, depression, panic attacks, trauma/PTSD, grief, work and academic issues, stress, low self-esteem, relationship and family concerns as well as many other issues that often come up throughout the lifespan.
If you are thinking about seeking counseling for yourself, your child, a family member, or friend, I would be happy to speak with you and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the therapeutic process. I offer a free phone consultation in which you can decide whether I may be a good match for you or your loved one.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Counseling allows for a confidential and safe space to talk with someone who is not biased or judgmental about issues that are interfering with your happiness. My goal is to help you think deeper about a specific problem, or see situations in a different light. This can help you process through issues in a healthier manner than if you were to do so on your own.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
The duration and frequency of therapy can vary widely from person to person depending on your circumstances and what you are seeking treatment for. I typically recommend we start with you coming in once a week for 50 minute session. We will be in constant communication throughout our time together about the level of support you feel you currently need. If you feel you are thriving and ready for less support, the frequency of counseling will go down. Oppositely, if you are going through a particularly difficult time, the frequency of counseling may go up if we decide that would be beneficial for you.
