My Approach to Helping

Clients who work with me feel empowered and reassured on their first visit, and they continue with me because they see results. For the past 13 years, I've worked in private and group practices, providing counseling and other services to people from many different walks of life. I help people who want to re-evaluate, re-invent, grieve, to let go, to become closer to a loved one, or to process difficult decisions or transitions. I enjoy helping people become more truthful about themselves and live with integrity.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

If you wouldn't buy a pair of jeans without shopping around a bit, then you shouldn't sign on with a therapist until you've had the chance to meet a few and see how you feel in their presence. It's hard enough to go to therapy. Make sure you really like the therapist.

Does the therapist listen well or does she seem too eager to offer advice? Does she seem too focused on theories and techniques and not really focused on your unique situation and how it's affecting you? Does she sit blankly, not really offering much insight or feedback? Do you get the impression that she is self- aware, that she's known sorrow and suffering, or does she seem detached from her own struggles?

Listen to your gut instinct, from the moment you walk in the door. If you don't feel seen, heard or cared for, then look elsewhere.
