Therapy isn't always easy. Sometimes it's downright hard and exhausting. But therapy isn't too different from a vigorous workout: if you're sore at the end, you're probably making some positive gains. If you want to take on the challenge of growing as a person, getting out of a rut, and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone to improve your life and wellbeing, I'll be delighted to join you in whatever capacity you want. Working with me is going to be pretty conversational and laidback, and I want you to be comfortable sitting with me and shooting the breeze, as well as digging really deep into some sensitive stuff. You have the capacity and strength to become an even better version of you than you are today. Let me help you bring that strength out.

More Info About My Practice

My Role as a Therapist

As far as I'm concerned, you're the expert on your life; you know more about yourself than I could ever hope to learn. My job isn't to tell you what you should or shouldn't do because I don't know what will be best for you; YOU ultimately know what would be better for you. Therapy with me is collaborative, where we share information with each other to come up with the best ideas and solutions for your life and situation.

My Therapy Focus

My therapy focus is your therapy focus. You choose what we talk about each session, you choose what's important for our discussions to focus on, and you decide if we need to change direction at any point. From time to time, I may offer suggestions of topics that I feel might be important, but again, it's up to you what we talk about.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

What you tell me is up to you. However, the more aspects of yourself that you share with me, the better I'll be able to help you.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

How can I possibly understand where you're coming from? After all, I haven't had the same experiences as you. That's true. But, it's also true that many of the experiences I've had in my life are likely similar to yours. I've struggled in my life too, having experienced both depression and anxiety at different points in my life. I'm human, just like you, and when I've been going through some of the hardest times of my life, I'm willing to bet that I've had many of the same thoughts and concerns that you're certain you've been alone in thinking.
