My Approach to Helping

My goal is for you to learn how to prioritize your needs so you feel confident and fulfilled. Like anything worthwhile, it'll take time, but I will be alongside you as we take it one step at a time. We'll set goals and work on completing them, both in-session and with out-of-session tasks.

We will communicate regularly to check in on how you're doing and we’ll make adjustments as needed to ensure you feel like you are progressing. We'll take steps together to help you better deal with anxiety and stress, improve your relationships, navigate career changes, and reduce depression.

More Info About My Practice

I have a lot of life experience. For years, I worked in the corporate world, but I'm also creative. I have had many experiences that have had significant impact on my life such as quitting a job, starting a new career, moving across the country, starting a business, starting and ending romantic relationships, being a parent, navigating interpersonal relationships.. I've learned that every experience is a learning opportunity that will help you find out what works for you and what doesn't.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have experience supporting clients with anxiety, self-esteem, stress, relationship issues, life transitions, mid-life crisis, quarter life crisis, confidence, work-life balance, parenting, family conflict, and self-identity.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy can help people in different ways, which is why it is important to collaborate together on a plan that feels good to both of us and then to check-in regularly so that we can make adjustments as necessary. For some clients, help comes from having a non-judgmental, safe place to discuss their issues, for others it means making a detailed plan to meet their goals, and for others it means practicing skills needed to improve a relationship with their boss, their partner, their friends, andor family. I believe the client is the expert in their own life and will most often be the one to lead us on our journey to well-being.

My Therapy Focus

In my practice, I focus on the present and the future. In order to do this, we need to understand the past, but my approach is to help support you with your current problems and work toward gaining the fulfillment you seek.
