I want to see a full picture of you versus just the single, painful thing that brought you in. Do you have meaning? Do you have support in some sort of way? Do you feel known, respected and empowered? Are you resilient? Let's understand how you cope with challenges and help you do more of what works, less of what causes you suffering.

I'm interested in looking at your relationships--perhaps with your partner, your friends and family and ultimately with yourself. This is important because I see how you manage these relationships as integral to creating your reality. Together we can look where your relationships are satisfying, versus painful, and we can shift dynamics to help you achieve the life you want.

As part of seeing the full you, I want to know more about when you hold back, what fears and dreams you silently harbor. I'm going to offer you a safe place to open up and I'm also going to give you feedback when I think you need to hear it. I'm open to seeing individuals and couples/families as needed--as in the unit of treatment may shift as we go.

More Info About My Practice

I'm flexible and adaptable in my style. Some clients need to come in weekly or twice weekly. Down the road, some clients choose to taper off and come less often. I am also open to bringing in guests (spouse, sibling, parent, friend) who may offer insight to the client's work.

I do see some clients via telehealth (VSEE) when they travel or if they live too far to come in person regularly.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Questions about identity can be triggered in various ways. I'm intrigued with this questioning and will help you sort the details. It could be around gender identity, sexual orientation, co-dependency or loss (divorce, death, retirement, break ups), among other things. Together we'll look at who you are and who you want to become.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

So much of what happens in therapy is non-verbal. On a gut level, I think you want to feel like you trust your therapist. You feel seen, heard and understood. You also want the pacing to feel right. The therapist doesn't get way out in front or keep rehashing things you don't care about. You will know in a session or two if it's a good fit. And you can always ask for something to be different along the way. They should be responsive to you.
