My Approach to Helping

My practice focuses on providing therapy for women in all stages of life. Our work together can focus on support you with managing stress or anxiety, exploring the impact of life transitions, or navigating your feelings around your relationships with others and with yourself. My intention is to provide compassionate therapy, so we can explore your internal and external world with curiosity, together.

I use tools such as mindfulness, being in the here-and-now, and attuning to your process because I find that there is healing available in being witnessed, understood and in being seen with kindness.

You may find that therapy provides a safe space for you to freely speak about your needs, your wants, and your experience. Therapy can be a dedicated place to be able to turn towards yourself. To start or restart your journey in therapy, please reach out for your free 15 minute phone consultation to see if I am the right fit for your process.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am skilled in helping women explore their inner worlds and their relationships. I have experience helping individuals reduce anxiety and their feelings of panic. I can help support you to strengthen your internal resources and coping mechanisms. I have experience supporting women identify and understand their wants and needs in relationships and help develop an understanding of how to strengthen their boundaries.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Scheduling an introductory phone call allows you the opportunity to ask questions, discuss what your needs are and get a sense of my working style and what therapy might look like. It gives you the space to decide what the best fit for you is and your needs and if I am a good match for the work you would like to do. It also creates some space for you to discuss your concerns or hopes for therapy without any pressure to commit to working together. My sincere goal is to get you the kind of support that feels right for you.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Therapy has been found to be most beneficial and productive when incorporated into a client's lifestyle. Generally, sessions are scheduled once a week, especially in the beginning. Having sessions weekly allows you the opportunity to establish the necessary therapeutic relationship, provides consistency and allows you to have dedicated weekly support.

The duration of therapy depends on your particular needs and goals. As we work together, we will discuss your goals and treatment needs.
