My Approach to Helping
I believe everyone can change. Whether it is your first time in therapy or you are therapy-experienced, my approach is to take the time to get to know you, your unique perspective, and what it is you are hoping to get out of therapy. In this way, we can work together to help you develop new skills (and utilize those you already have) to move in a better direction. My specialty areas have developed over time and include the treatment of trauma, PTSD, depressive disorders, anxiety, life dissatisfaction, relationship troubles, parenting, and self-exploration. I consider myself to be client-centered, accepting my clients where they are and choosing the best strategies to help them based on who they are. I am also flexible in my practice setting, allowing for telehealth, an office visit, or a more natural setting if appropriate. Wherever you are, whatever you are struggling with, I will work to help you achieve your goals.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to grow. Although people can change on their own, most of the time it is much harder, painful, and time-consuming without some help. A trained therapist can offer insights and provide new skills to deal with your problems, helping you to begin living the life you want much more quickly.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
A good fit between a therapist and a client is essential to positive change. Many studies indicate that the relationship a client has with their therapist is just as important as the kind of therapeutic intervention that guides treatment. With this in mind, I recommend the following when choosing a therapist. First, determine which gender you feel more comfortable working with. Second, find a therapist that has a specialty in your area of concern. Next, set a time to talk with the therapist to determine whether they are a good fit - this includes how comfortable you feel, whether you can agree on goals, and if you could see yourself developing trust with the potential therapist.
