My Approach to Helping

If you are in the place of exploring therapy, you want someone who is empathetic, knowledgeable and engaged in helping you work through the pressing issue (or issues.)
So, I work with clients in a collaborative manner, and together we establish the direction and pace of our work. I also strive to create a safe, supportive environment that encourages honesty, authenticity, connection and direction.
The decision to start therapy is a commitment to living more consciously, understanding what matters to you, and moving past getting stuck.

More Info About My Practice

I have 15 years of extensive experience working with patients who struggle with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, relationship difficulties and LGBTQ issues. I work well with survivors of trauma (physical, sexual, emotional) and am EMDR Certified. I also work with clients who have physical symptoms (headaches, sleep disturbance, digestive problems, muscle tension) that are connected to psychological processes (stress, anger, worry, dissociation). In addition to psychotherapy, I teach and practice mindfulness and relaxation techniques and use EMDR (eye movement or other bilateral stimulation) as needed.

I am at times directive in my sessions, helping to guide the process towards healing. But, I also believe, while I might have the expertise in psychotherapeutic treatment, you are the expert on you. Therefore, I consider this work a collaborative endeavor. My patients have described me as warm, genuine, honest, patient, insightful and present.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Most people seek therapy because they're suffering. Many of my clients describe feeling confused about their lives or stuck in their current path. They feel like they've reached the end of a fraying rope or that life is working against them. This crisis can manifest in many ways, from a life trauma to a difficult breakup, from physical ailments to chronic feelings of anxiety and dread. Some people face no crisis, instead feeling constantly sad or as if life has passed them by. You should take these symptoms seriously. Therapy can help you work through them.

Everyone has their own story that deserves understanding. Good therapy is a form of soul work that can nurture you in deep, meaningful ways. For a free phone consultation, please contact me.
