My Approach to Helping

Change starts with small steps. Finding a therapist can seem intimidating, but in many ways it’s the first step toward the change you’re hoping for.

Finding a “right fit” therapist can tremendously empower you or your loved one to regain the confidence and happiness everyone deserves. It is crucial to build a trusting relationship with a therapist who can help you work through the decisions that you need to make in order to feel whole again in a safe and nonjudgmental environment. I take the time to really get to know you - to hear your story and get to know how you have been shaped by your experiences. This gives me a vantage point for seeing what positive coping skills, new ideas, and strategies will help you grow.

Together, we can chart a course for you to reach your potential by being accountable for the goals you set for yourself. Through your commitment and participation, you can help to prevent further symptoms from occurring, become mindful of triggers that may arise, and respond in a healthy way. may arise and respond in a healthy way.

More Info About My Practice

With a background as a school counselor and in private practice, I have vast experience dealing with both adolescents and adults. I use solution-focused and Acceptance and Commitment therapy in my work, whether it’s with adults and couples who need someone to guide you through whatever rough waters you find yourself in, or with adolescents wrestling with the difficulty of being a teen in this crazy world. I am also trained in ERP for client with OCD. My clients often come to me with heightened anxiety, sexual identity struggles, partner and family stressors, grief, and overwhelm with everyday life.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

There's a misconception that therapy is one step away from throwing in the towel, when really therapy is the first step on a journey that can bring healing and happiness back into your life. The thought that ?only those XYZ kind of people need it? can hold you back from engaging in this process of self-discovery and growth through any sort of difficult situation in your life. Whether you are an individual struggling right now or helping your loved one seek help, I encourage you to reach out. Remember, "The secret of getting ahead is getting started" (Mark Twain).
