My Approach to Helping

I'm committed to helping others learn how to overcome a variety of issues that may be creating a roadblock to a healthier self. I'm passionate about creating resources and a safe environment in which you can feel comfortable. My work targets ineffective behaviors, beliefs or habits. I am experienced in topics such as depression, anxiety, mood disorders, OCD and trauma work.
I take the approach of meeting you where you are in life. I have experience working with individuals, families and couples. My therapy work also extends to children and adolescents. We may spend several sessions building rapport, formulating treatment goals and finding the relief needed to alleviate some of your current symptoms.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

Therapy is not meant to "cure" someone from their struggles. Rather, it is an opportunity to discover new strengths, new skills and serve as a tool for a client to better cope with their problems. As a therapist, I am going to listen to you, encourage you and serve as a place you can talk and open up freely. What my job is not meant to do is fix problems or tell a client what to do. It is up to the client to take what is learned and utilize that information outside of sessions. A good therapist is going to care about the client, and it will show.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

Getting along with your therapist and connecting in a positive way is vital to the therapy outcome a client is seeking. I often tell clients it can take a few sessions and sometimes longer, to feel really comfortable or develop a sense of trust. I have especially found this to be the case in working with children and adolescents. They can experience trauma or significant changes differently than adults. My focus is to make the therapy environment a safe and comfortable place for anyone that comes to see me.
