My Approach to Helping

Psychotherapy is a unique and wonderful process, and my experience as a therapist has been an immensely rewarding one. Therapy progresses as a conversation between client and psychotherapist. Unlike relationships with friends or family, a therapeutic relationship focuses on you and your needs. I admire your strength and courage in seeking support, and I warmly welcome all your thoughts and concerns about this new endeavor. As your therapist, I bring my heartfelt desire to help you. My approach is collaborative and interactive. I focus on listening and understanding your concerns, and I offer input and insight. Your hopes and goals, concerns and challenges are all welcome. Our goal is to support your healthy desire for a more fulfilling life.

More Info About My Practice

I work with adults, adolescents, and couples on a wide range of social, emotional, and psychological concerns. I offer free phone consultation so that we may "meet" over the phone and determine if I'm the right person to help you. I invite you to view my website which contains more specific information about my practice. I look forward to hearing from you.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

It's very difficult to struggle alone, and at one time or another we all need support. You've made an important decision to consider therapy. Therapy can help you make positive and lasting change. It is understandable if you are having concerns about the fit of the therapeutic relationship and whether or not you will be helped. Regardless of the research you do upfront, I know that meeting a new therapist can often feel like a leap of faith. As your therapist, I assure you that all your questions and concerns about starting therapy are welcome. We can go at your pace. I am available to hear all your thoughts and feelings and I invite your feedback throughout. My priority is to understand your unique concerns, help you feel comfortable, and meet your treatment goals. Through our work together, over time, we can help you have a happier and more satisfying life.
