My Approach to Helping

** Currently accepting NON - Insurance (cash pay) clients for telehealth sessions only **

Hello everyone, and thank you for taking the time to find yourself the right therapist. It's not always easy to find the right professional to talk to, and searching through this site is a very valuable first step.

My practice utilizes the evidenced based practices of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and Meditation and Hypnotherapy to unlock lasting change that clients can sustain outside of therapy. My job is to help, to heal and to, eventually, put myself out of a job. Your life needs you in it - completely and intentionally. Our job in here is to find the best tools to do that.

In session, we will build a holistic treatment plan, focused around your unique strengths, abilities and tendencies. My unique approach means more profound change in a shorter amount of time, meaning less appointments and more tools that you can take with you into everyday life. As well, we teach skills in session for you to practice daily and weekly that will help cement the changes you create.

You will find the office warm, inviting and discreet. The parking is easy. My style is approachable, calm and kind. My office is a judgement free zone that is open and affirming to all. We do good work in this space, and I invite you come in and see for yourself what amazing things can happen with a bit of hard work and a belief that change can be scary, exciting, profound and lasting.

I'm looking forward to meeting you!

More Info About My Practice

I am a Registered Hypnotherapist and a Certified Yoga Teacher (YTT200) registered with Yoga Alliance and a Licensed Mental Health Provider. There are many avenues to wellness for people and our job is to find the right fit for what speaks to you and what you can carry out of session and use in your everyday life. Breathwork, Body work, and Mind Work, using traditional "talk therapy" are all components of good quality mental health care. If you are unsure about what methodology may work for you, let's talk about it!

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

That's normal.

It's often hard to put ourselves first and face tough things.

Food for thought: A year from now, it will still be a year from now. Do you want to be in this same place, or do you want to see some lasting changes happening in that year? The time is gonna pass anyways - maybe we could spend the time finding ways to improve your life and the lives of those around you.

Change doesn't stop with you - it radiates out to everyone you interact with. You cannot change one aspect about yourself without profoundly impacting every other person or system you come into contact with.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

I believe that there are no masters, only people in constant practice. I also believe that we are the experts on ourselves, we just sometimes need outside feedback to understand ourselves a bit better. So the first intervention is to hand you the reigns on how often and how much you want to get out of counseling and put you in control of your situation. This may seem frustrating to some, and fabulous to others.

I will say that typically people attend session at least 6 times and often longer as needed. I feel 6 sessions is an adequate amount to see the full range of interventions, to get to know me and the office, and to start feeling comfortable sharing your story.

Client's come to session until they feel they don't need to anymore. Some client's do 2 sessions and are done, other's need many more. There is not right or wrong duration - only the deliberate and active process of choosing your health.
