My Approach to Helping

My practice is currently full and I am not accepting new clients. I wish you well in your search. Please feel free to check back occasionally as things can and do often change. :)

I think you're wise. I think you know most of the answers, you just need some help to find the wise voice in your head over all the other noise. My job is to give you a safe, nonjudgmental space to talk about how you are feeling, share the thoughts and feelings that you don't share with others. To start to hear how not all the noise in your head is useful or even true. I'll jump in with a thought, sarcasm, emotion, or humor to bring to light how your thoughts contradict themselves or how how they might not make sense when looked at thoughtfully, otherwise the floor is yours. It isn't till you say things out loud that you start to realize some of your beliefs may not stand up to scrutiny. I offer compassion and understanding. And the space to start to heal. Take the space to cry when you need (it is a cliché for a reason, right?) and the space to laugh when you need. All emotions will come up and they all teach you about yourself and your needs. I'll offer some tools for the road, but, mostly, this is about you feeling comfortable with yourself and working towards embodying the authentic version of yourself.

I will also support you as we talk about the ugly things that have happened in your past, to bring them into the light, so you can start to heal. I know that working with someone you feel comfortable and heard by is the foundation of being able to face the trauma in your history. I will start off telling you that I understand I may not be the right therapist for you. Therapy is an intimate relationship, and I want you to be with a therapist that you can trust and with whom you feel connected. That is the utmost importance for me. I can provide the safe space for you to share as you are comfortable, to look at what hurt piece of you that can take over your decision making when you are not watching. I want to help that part of you to feel safe.

I also believe that relationships are we heal and grow the most. The ones we love most are the ones who push our buttons and make us look at the pieces of ourselves we may not like that much. Even if you are coming alone, we may foray into communication and how relationships help you to grow. I also work with couples if you want to learn how to communicate and navigate conflict in a way that does not harm one another. Those skills that may have not been offered to you by your parents are the skills we will target together. I believe you can be the partner you want to be to your partner.

More Info About My Practice

I'm exclusively telehealth. I will start by saying it is awkward. Therapy would be better if we could be in the same room, certainly. And. I know we can still do real and meaningful work.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

There are bad waitresses, bad accountants, bad doctors, and bad therapists. Every field has gifted professionals and folks who may not have heard their true calling. We have all heard stories about someone who went to a therapist and left feeling worse than when they arrived. And it is not always that the therapist was bad, they may not have been the right fit for you. Therapy is a deeply intimate relationship. Seeing a therapist who helps you feel heard, who offers you compassion in a manner that you can hear, whose humor runs the path as yours, is integral to therapy helping. I have a big personality, it comes into the room with me. I can curse like a sailor in session. I am definitely sarcastic. And I am caring, nonjudgmental, and passionate about helping you to work through your challenges. And how I show up in the room may get in the way of that for you. I am not for everybody. It can be scary to go back to therapy after you have had a negative experience. There is no guarantee that this time will be better. And. It might be. Finding the right person with whom you feel heard and supported by can happen. I just want you to know that having a bad experience in therapy is nothing about you. You hold no culpability. There is no such thing as doing therapy wrong. You just found at least one person with whom you did not connect. That's not personal, that just happens. What I will do is validate your experience. However you felt after that bad session it absolutely true. And then I will talk to you about how we can, together, aim to have an experience that restores some (or all) faith back into therapy.
