I truly enjoy working with people and supporting them through whatever it may be that is considered challenging at the time. This may be something from the that is impacting the present. Or, it may be something that is currently taking place that you are finding to be difficult to navigate alone. My approach to helping others starts with, "How can I be most helpful to you?" I pose that question because during the times that we are meeting, those sessions are for YOU.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I completely understand if you are on the fence. Therapy is not a topic that many people talk about their experiences with. Mental health continues to be stigmatized in society. With that said, though, I want to let you know that I work very hard to create a safe space for you in my office. A space where you can be vulnerable and challenge yourself through growth.

I also offer a free 15-minute phone consultation. This helps to ease some of the worry around "who is this stranger I am going to meet?" It also lets you check and see if my approach and style is one you would be interested in working with.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

One of the more important components of therapy is the client-therapist alliance. We are working together as you navigate the challenges in life. I am here as an additional support. I also acknowledge the fact that you are the expert on your life. I take the time to learn about you and get to know you, while we are also creating a plan on how to decrease any worry, anger, or sadness you may be experiencing.
