My Approach to Helping
I use an eclectic model of therapy that helps us work as a team to devise a treatment plan that works for you. We will focus on what you feel you need the most help with at any given time. I follow the idea that you are the expert on you. While I can help guide you through the sometimes messy process of unpacking where you want to go, you make the decisions every step of the way.
More Info About My Practice
Together, we can establish payments that are best for where you are in life. Out-of-network insurance options are available, as are sliding scale rates based on income and schedule flexibility. I am available to see you for an intake as quickly as the day after you get in touch, and my hours are very flexible.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
My basic philosophy is that I want to create an absolutely judgement-free space with you. I have experience helping others with many different aspects of their lives, including domestic violence, anxiety, sexuality, substance abuse, depression, anger, and concerns within couples and families. I am sex-positive, LGBTQ affirming, kink- and poly-friendly, and have worked with people who enjoy sexual relationships of all shapes and sizes.
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
Counselors and therapists, much like yourself, are just people. We will not always be correct, and we are truly not the experts on you and your life; you are. That is why it is so important to work together, rather than for a therapist to tell a client what to do. When we work together as a team, you start moving toward your goals more quickly and get practice using the tools that will help you throughout therapy and beyond.
