Are you feeling that life isn't going quite as you would like? Are you experiencing stress or anxiety that is impacting your work or relationships? Are you experiencing grief of difficulty with a life transition? Or facing questions about your identity and life purpose? These are some of the reasons people seek therapy with me. My approach is gentle and collaborative, as we explore what has been troubling you and help you identify how you would like to move forward for a more satisfying life. I strive to provide a supportive therapy relationship where you can feel truly heard and even less alone. I specialize in working with young adults (ages 18-40), and draw on my experience from four years working in university counseling centers prior to starting a private practice. My approach is informed by multicultural and feminist theories, acknowledging the impact of your environment on your life and stress. I also draw on interpersonal theories, focusing on the impact of our relationships on who we are. I offer free consultations and would be happy to talk with you if you would like to explore working together.

More Info About My Practice

I often help clients learn mindfulness skills to help manage anxiety and depression. I am also a Certified Daring Way Faciltator-Candidate. The Daring Way(TM) is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brene Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings. During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Building a relationship and sharing vulnerably with a therapist can feel foreign, and it is natural to wonder how this can help. Often clients find it useful to be able to share about relational difficulties with a trained professional who is not involved in the situations they are encountering, to get an outside perspective. Therapy can help you clarify your values and take action towards our goals. It can help you tolerate distress and learn to manage difficulties more easily.
Additionally, the relationship between therapist and client itself can feel healing when you allow yourselves to show up and be truly seen in ways you may not have been ready or able to in other parts of your life.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Life is messy. And we all have struggles. Seeking support from a therapist doesn't mean you are 'out of control' but rather are wanting help learning some new skills to manage emotions and challenges you are facing. Often working through your concerns about coming to therapy is part of our work together. I believe it is an act of bravery and investment in your future to decide to give therapy a try.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

Finding a therapist who is a good match for you is important so that you can feel comfortable sharing openly. There is a lot of research pointing to the strength of the client-therapist relationship as one of the most important parts of successful therapy. The relationship we will form is unlike most others in your life, and we may feel quite close after working together for a period of time. I frequently ask for feedback from my clients throughout our work together so we can explore the quality of our relationship and make sure we are addressing your needs in the time we spend together.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

The duration and frequency of therapy varies with each person I work with depending on what they are seeking to address. I encourage new clients to come weekly for several weeks to jump-start our work together and help us build our relationship more quickly so you can begin to feel the impact of therapy right away. Many clients will choose to come on alternate weeks after a period of time when they begin to experience some relief. Some people come for a few months and some come for years. We can explore together what will work best for you.
