My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed independent therapist providing mental wellness counseling by way of a positive, holistic approach. I believe that counseling is a collaborative effort in which I support individuals in improving the quality of their life. I believe we are all doing the best we can with the tools we have and are striving to present as our best version of self. Using a Gestalt approach increases self-esteem, self-acceptance, and new ways of being in relationship with one’s environment thereby promoting positive change and wellness. I believe an investment in yourself yields the best return. I invite you to enter a collaborative, supportive relationship to assist during transitions such as relationship concerns, break-ups, divorce, bereavement, other life transitions, professional and personal growth. Insurance is not needed; and services are offered at a rate that is affordable for you.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
How often has someone asked you "how are you"? and your automatic response is "fine" but inside your head, you are listing all the times and ways you are not feeling fine? Societal norms keep us from actually sharing in that moment. We move on with our day but not forward. What keeps us from asking for help? Fear of appearing weak or stupid? Is it not knowing where to turn? Who to call? Or you have asked for help in the past, but it was a negative experience? The benefits of talking the situation through with a therapist allows you the space to share your thoughts and feelings without judgment. Socrates is quoted as saying "know thyself". Following that ideal, through talk therapy, one develops deeper awareness and understanding of self. In turn, peaceful resolutions may be discovered. Reach out! Ask for help.
