My Approach to Helping

You may have this adulting thing somewhat figured out, but you thought it would be a lot different. It seems like no matter what you do, other people are passing you by. People you went to school with are getting their dream jobs while you’re stuck behind a desk. Friends are getting married and starting a family while you get ghosted over and over again. You may feel like all the hard work you have put it has been pointless and that can be beyond frustrating. The people I work with come to therapy wanting to figure out what they are doing in life, why others seem to have it all figured out, and why it seems like their friends are passing them by. They feel stuck and are losing hope of the life they had envisioned. For the most part, their life is okay; decent job, good friends and family, but they feel like their relationships never go the way they plan. I help them regain hope and reclaim their happiness. I am down-to-earth and keep it real. I won’t bat an eyelash if you drop an F bomb in session. I will help you sort through the crap you’ve been lugging around for way too long so that you can move on and be free from it weighing you down.

More Info About My Practice

I am 100% telehealth right now and use HIPAA compliant video through the patient portal. Telehealth is much more similar to in-person therapy than you might expect, and research shows it’s just as effective! I’d love to chat with you and see how I can help so feel free to schedule a free phone consult through my website or just shoot me an email to set it up.
