My Approach to Helping

It's no secret, we're living in some scary and uncertain times. Maybe you struggled with anxiety, depression or other challenges before. Maybe those feelings have hit you out of the blue with the huge change in the times we live in. Whatever the case, I can help. No, I can't make everything go back to normal. What I can do is offer you the support you need, as well as proven tools that will help you feel better within as we navigate these very real changes in life. Don't walk through this alone. Call for a free consultation to see if I might be the right therapist for you.

More Info About My Practice

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

People come to me at some of the most difficult times in their lives. Maybe they are hurting, scared, grieving. Maybe life has just gotten too overwhelming. Whatever the reason, my clients entrust me with some of the most difficult experiences they have faced. I've heard so many times something like, "I've never told anyone". Yet here they are, trusting that I will listen, will not judge, and will work hard with them to try and find solutions that work. It is truly a privilege to be a small part of someone's healing journey, and to see them begin to use that inner strength that was there all along to move toward the life they really want to be living.

My Role as a Therapist

My role as a therapist is to be that safe person, who will truly listen and try to understand where you're stuck. I help clients find their own strengths and develop the plan that will work the best for them to truly begin their unique healing processes. When you confide in me, you can expect no judgment, no well-meaning but unwanted statements as to how you "should" be living your life. Instead, we work together to uncover the real you, and you begin the process of becoming the person you truly want to be.
