My Approach to Helping

Scheduling that first therapy session can be the hardest part. Getting started is half the battle. Perhaps you’ve struggled with therapy in the past or, maybe, it’s your first time and you’re nervous or anxious about what to expect. I’m here to help you navigate through those feelings and help turn the therapeutic process into one that you’ll enjoy. I believe that everyone’s story is unique and enter each session with an open-mind and willingness to meet you wherever you’re at. I believe that you’re the expert when it comes to your own life experiences and am here to provide the strategies and tools you need to help you help yourself.

Do you often feel weighed down by symptoms of anxiety or depression? Are you dealing with life transitions such as starting or ending a relationship, getting married, getting divorced, having or adopting a child, starting a new job, attending school, experiencing significant financial gain or loss, buying or selling a home, health issues, moving or loss or death? Feeling stressed and just need someone to talk to? These are all areas that I have experience in and I would love to work with you to help you set and accomplish your goals, whatever they may be.

As a therapist, I have worked in residential and private practice settings helping individuals develop the knowledge and skills necessary to process and deal with difficult situations. This knowledge and these skills are taught using a variety of methods. Are you a visual learner? Let’s draw it out! Do you like playing games? Let’s create and play. Articles and worksheets more your style? My library is full! Let’s work together to find what works best for you.

In between long walks with my rescue dog, Sophie, I offer a flexible schedule to best meet your needs. Let’s create a plan to get you back on track to where you want to be. Contact me today to learn more about my services and to schedule an appointment. I look forward to working with you and starting an adventure towards healing.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

What do I love most about being a psychotherapist? Seeing you change for the better as we work together to accomplish your goals, one by one. Change doesn't happen overnight but I truly believe that, if you're ready and willing to put in the work and trust the process, it can happen. And when it does? The results are everything.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Many individuals are hesitant about going to therapy after they've had a negative therapy experience. I promise that not all therapists are the same. Don't let one bad apple ruin any possible growth that is waiting to happen. Am I saying that I'm the best therapist for you? No, not at all. But, let's see if I can help change your mind about the therapy experience. And, if it turns out that I?m not right for you? I'm happy to provide referrals because, at the end of the day, I want you to receive the best care by whatever means possible.
