My Approach to Helping
We all face challenges from time to time, whether it be with relationships, anxiety, grief, or a sense of dissatisfaction with where we are in life. These times can feel overwhelming, frustrating and exhausting! It takes courage to reach out for help. I provide a safe, non-judgmental space where you can share emotional difficulties, pain, and stress. Together, we can help you move forward, heal relationships, reduce anxiety and accomplish your goals. We can discover your inner wisdom, resources and joy and increase your ability to fully enjoy life. I bring compassion, experience, dedication, creativity and a sense of humor to our work together.
More Info About My Practice
I offer a free 30 minute consultation to discuss goals for therapy and to address any questions or concerns you may have about my practice or the therapy process. I offer a sliding fee scale for clients experiencing financial difficulties. As an out-of-network provider, I am happy to provide the necessary paperwork to you to submit to insurance for reimbursement. I also work with Victim's compensation cases and Mines and Associates Employee Assistance Program. I limit the number of clients in my practice to ensure that I can be fully present with each adult, adolescent, child, couple and family that I meet with.
