My Approach to Helping

Thank you for reviewing my profile and I welcome calls for a complimentary phone consultation.
Welcome to my profile. Therapy can be transformative, healing, an entry way to build upon the life you seek. You've taken that courageous step. I prioritize building trust, a judgement free, empathic connection and a purposeful road to goals. With over 25 years as a therapist, I value and learn from the hundreds of clientsreviews; as well as my mission of being a lifelong learner. My expertise is with anxiety disorders & depression, mood disorders, trauma. Science based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and related approaches are shown to be so effective in authentic change. Goals include learning new tools to support changing distorted self-bashing thinking to self-confidence to pursue a fulfilling life that you actively choose. Mindbody supports are a foundation those tools. My commitment is to use my experience, education & special training to support an individualized, emotionally strong, evidence based, therapeutic path to get what you want out of your life. You will thrive in new and steady ways. Adults are the largest part of my practice, that automatically brings in relationships and families too.
I am so inspired to meet new clients! I value, respect, and learn with each connection. I value clients who are diverse in all aspects of life and looking for self-awareness, growth, and a vision of an amazing future. Our partnership is committed to just that.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Of course you have questions and concerns, you have the courage to take the step to change and where to start? Trust, confidentiality, finances, "telling your story",past attempts at therapy, limited success and now what? These are all real concerns and questions you can share in a phone call before deciding if now is the time and we are a good fit. Start simple; what is the primary issue? Not the universe of communication, but more specific, "I can't focus at work"; "I am angry with my family"; "My children will not listen"; "My partner talks at me, not to me", " I am so disappointed in....." You may find deeper emotion around statements such as these, but the best place to start is not with the universe, but with "what is the toughest thing today". Any therapy commitment should have you leaving the office on the first visit with more clarity, confidence, feeling lighter, possibly energized. Most of all, feel the genuine connection of the therapist and don't be afraid to ask" What can I expect?" "How do we get where I want to be?" Best of luck, you are worth it!
