My Approach to Helping
Understanding the causes of anxiety, depression, and self-doubt by increasing self-awareness is the key to effectively navigating life's challenges. I provide a warm and collaborative interpersonal style focused on open communication and integrity while also challenging you to explore ways to live a more fulfilling life. I work with people of all age ranges but specialize in adults in their 20's and 30's experiencing difficulties with anxiety, depression, professional identity, relationship difficulties, and stress management. I also provide initial face-to-face consultation for no fee prior to beginning therapy.
I use a psychodynamic approach focused on understanding how past experiences and relationships influence current difficulties and have been trained in a variety of other therapeutic approaches, including cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavior, and humanistic. I believe therapy needs be tailored to the unique needs of each person and think it is vital to do so in order to best address each client's difficulties. I do not see people as diagnoses but as unique individuals with a story to tell and different ways to deal with life's challenges.
Making the first step towards starting therapy to live a more fulfilling life is often difficult and stressful. I try to decrease this stress by providing a clear process and a transparent discussion of any issues as they arise. While I am not in-network with any insurance providers, I am more than willing to assist you with the process of obtaining out of network reimbursement. Depending on your specific coverage, I would be happy to provide documentation needed to obtain reimbursement or submit claims on your behalf. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions and I wish you the best of luck in this process!!
