My Approach to Helping

I am a licensed psychologist with 15+ years experience providing psychotherapy to adult patients of all ages.

I specialize in helping people tune in to the voice that speaks to who they are and what they truly want from life. As we begin to listen to this voice, we will understand more about your wishes and dreams. We will also gather information about entrenched patterns and fears that may be holding you back from living fully. Knowing equally about hopes and worries empowers you to act from a place of power, rather than reacting from a place of fear.

I work to listen deeply to the parts of you that others can't or won't hear. Providing a safe space for people to discover their core selves not only helps those I work with, it also gives me a true sense of joy!

More Info About My Practice

I practice depth psychotherapy, and include aspects of Relational and Psychodynamic theories in my work. I weave these in with healthy doses of humor, humanity, and respect to create a fabric that can hold all facets of your life in a balance that allows us to explore and understand more about you together.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

When searching for a therapist, the relationship is everything! Sometimes you will know from a phone call or an email exchange that a potential therapist isn't right for you. Or, it may take working with them for a few sessions, or even a few months, to decide the fit isn't right. Regardless, you always have the right to end a therapy if it feels like it isn't working for you.

When asked by people in my life how they know if a therapy match is a good one, I recommend doing the following self inquiry:

Practical concerns
Can I reasonably make it to the time being offered?
Does the therapy space feel physically comfortable to me?
Do I feel the therapist has a level of competence to work with my issues of concern?
Can I reasonably* afford the fee? *This one is a little tricky, as the amount of money we can afford to spend may be different from the amount of money we would like to spend. I like to think of paying for good therapy as an investment in one's self and one's future. As with most investments, it may pinch a little on the front end, but the outcomes are well worth the initial discomfort.

Emotional concerns
Do I feel emotionally safe in the environment provided?
Do I feel comfortable sharing my inner thoughts and feelings with this person?
Do I feel confident this individual wants to work with me on the issues I am presenting?

Personality and choice concerns
Does the therapist's style mesh well with my own personality or style?
Would I prefer to work with a therapist of a particular gender, race, religion, etc., as that might help me feel more comfortable in therapy?
Does the therapist's theoretical orientation fit with my own world view?

It may feel overwhelming to take all of this into consideration when starting a new therapy relationship. However, the more you know about what helps you feel comfortable, the better able you will be to find a therapist who feels like a match for you personally. Think of seeing a new therapist like going on a platonic blind date. You can't know if it will work without trying it out. Follow your instincts, and don't be afraid to try several therapists before settling on one. Like the princesses from those old story books who kissed lots of frogs before finding a prince, you may need to sit in a few therapist's offices before you find the person who is the right fit to help you.
