My Approach to Helping

Therapy is a collaborative process between two people, which can include both skill-building and self-exploration. I take an integrative approach, combining relational interpersonal-dynamic therapy with various problem-focused orientations including interpersonal social rhythm therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy. Humans are social beings, and consequently, most of our emotional difficulties occur in an interpersonal context. Relational approaches help me to understand this, see the client as a person-first (rather than focusing solely on the diagnosis or problem), and explore the ways the client sees their-self and relates to others.

Most clients determine to meet weekly and not to set an end date to therapy. Other clients have a clearly defined challenge or problem and want to address it in a time-limited approach, such as 8-16 weeks. Typically, the first session involves more back-and-forth to learn about each other and the reasons for starting therapy. The next few sessions might involve any initial skills that might help to quickly manage psychological symptoms - we may return to skill-building in future sessions if/when appropriate. After this, the client is seen as the expert in their life - the therapist helps reflect patterns or things the client may have missed or avoided in their psychological experience.

More Info About My Practice

I offer both Telehealth and In-Person therapy. My approach is flexible and individualized to your needs. The most important thing to selecting a therapist is your reaction to the therapist - I always suggest people call for a free initial consultation and even a first intake session before deciding whether to follow through with that therapist. Discussing past experiences with therapy can help hone in on what you need this time around.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions! You can call, text or email, as well as visiting my website, which has self-scheduling. My clients have access to a "client portal" website where they can self-schedule, using secure messaging, sign documents and easily pay bills (if you have a copay or are self-pay), and access telehealth appointments.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love getting to know others. I'm always interested in other's experience of their self, the world and relationships. I feel quite fortunate to be in a field that involves connection with people and I'm very appreciative to each client I work with, their strength in the therapeutic process and willingness to share.
