My Approach to Helping

I help adults navigate a variety of challenges, including life transitions, career concerns, financial difficulties, relationship concerns, depression, and anxiety. My work blends practical guidance with education and problem-solving. I embrace a collaborative approach to therapy. We partner together to gain insight into your unwanted emotional, behavioral, and relationship patterns. That knowledge helps us develop strategies that get you unstuck, so you can move forward with your life.

I serve as a caring, confidential partner who helps you privately address your concerns. Your goals guide the process from the beginning. Our work together can help you build your strengths and resources, enabling you to find long-lasting and effective solutions.

More Info About My Practice

One of my specialties is Financial Therapy, which focuses on the ways our thoughts and feelings around money can result in the creation of unhealthy spending habits. This work involves clarifying the impact of money "scripts" and helping clients develop strategies to create new, healthier patterns around managing their finances.

If you are considering an appointment, please call for a free initial phone consultation to determine whether I would be a good fit for your needs.
