My Approach to Helping
I help individuals navigate and manage complex emotions associated with infertility or infant loss (during or after pregnancy).
My approach to counseling is integrative, collaborative, and supportive. I believe people are the expert of their own lives and have the capacity for self-awareness. Providing a safe and supportive environment is very important to me. I want you to feel heard and accepted.
Sharing your story will assist you in navigating through your deep emotional pain and we work collaboratively to explore core beliefs and thought patterns. Creating a treatment plan that is individualized and specific to your needs will be our roadmap. We work on increasing coping skills and managing difficult emotions to improve your daily functioning. Incorporating evidence-based interventions such as breath work, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques will bring us a step closer to achieving our goals.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
As a psychotherapist, one of the things that I love is changing misconceptions people have about the counseling process. Therapy does not have to be a dreaded activity. It can be a time where insight is gained, an opportunity to relieve stress and an activity one looks forward to.
I believe every individual has talents and strengths. I love highlighting and reflecting the unique strengths each individual possess at a time when they may be unable to see it within themselves.
it is an honor and a privilege to be a psychotherapist. Providing a safe environment where individuals feel welcome, accepted, and heard is important to me. As a psychotherapist I enjoy watching individuals reach their personal goals. Witnessing the gradual transformation unfold from the first session to the final session is the best part of being a psychotherapist!
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Are you on the fence about going to therapy? Do you feel uncomfortable talking about yourself? Do you feel ashamed? Do you believe people who go to therapy are weak? Have you had a negative experience with therapy in the past?
It is common to have these thoughts and concerns prior to starting therapy. Therapy can seem scary, intimidating and uncomfortable. It is not easy asking others for help and it takes tremendous courage. Consider calling the therapist to obtain more information and address any concerns you may have prior to your first session. If you have had a negative experience with counseling in the past consider asking people you know if they have any recommendations. Try not to let let a previous negative experience deter you from the many gifts therapy has to offer. You do not have to go through this alone. If you do not know where to begin, have questions, or concerns call me for a free consultation.
