My Approach to Helping
Welcome to my webpage! I commend you for making the first step towards wellness by having the courage to seek help.
Are you struggling with negative or racing thoughts, overwhelming emotions, or addictive behaviors? Are you experiencing sadness, difficulty concentrating, shame, or maintaining regularity in sleeping or eating habits?
I believe that these symptoms can be treated in the context of therapy where I will help you meet realistic and personalized goals to you.
I am skilled in CBT, DBT, and REBT treatment approaches which tend to focus on the interplay between emotions, physiology, thoughts, and behaviors. I work to create a therapeutic relationship with my clients which is based on empathy, trust, and collaboration to help you reach your individualized goals.
The therapy process is different for everyone and it's important to have a personalized approach for you. If you're interested in working with me, I encourage you to reach out to me for a free initial phone consultation so that I can answer any questions you might have about the therapy process and get you started on your path to greater wellness.
More Info About My Practice
I work in association with Talk It Out, LLC which is a private group practice. I see clients M-F, both in person, as well as virtually through video or phone calls. I see clients between 10-5pm, with evenings (5-8pm appointments) reserved for virtual sessions only.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I love what I do and there are a few reasons for this. The first: I love to witness the changes clients make to improve their lives in their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. As a professional counselor, it has been incredibly rewarding to empower clients and help ease emotional burdens. The second: I love confronting the stigma surrounding mental health problems. The reality is that 1 in 4 adults struggle with a diagnosible mental illness in any given year! It's time we face this reality and work together to eliminate stigma which keeps those who are struggling away from getting the help they deserve. Finally, becoming a therapist has provided me with a sense of personal purpose and meaning. At the beginning of each day I'm grateful for the opportunities I have to support people who are struggling and help them reach their goals.
