My Approach to Helping

Are you experiencing issues related to stress, anxiety, depression, loss of identity, trauma, or lack of confidence? Are these issues causing you to neglect your own self-care, misuse substances, andor isolate from family and friends? Do you need support with navigating personal or professional relationships? Are you exploring your sexual or gender identity and need support in your journey? Managing a major life transition or preparing for one? These are the times when therapy can be helpful.

We can work together to identify your goals, improve your quality of life, and develop a strong sense of self in the process. In my practice I utilize a compassionate, strength based approach. I have a direct, empowering style and believe that the therapeutic process is a collaboration between the client and the therapist. I believe that you are the expert in your life; I will be working with you to identify goals and a treatment plan that will be tailored to your needs and existing strengths. My goal is to provide a safe, non judgmental space where you can develop insight and understanding of who you are, and to recognize patterns that are holding you back from achieving your personal andor professional goals. In our work together I will support you in developing the tools and coping skills to make the lasting positive changes you want and deserve in your life.

If you would like to find out more about my experience and approach to determine fit, I am happy to schedule a free 20 minute consultation by video or phone. I look forward to hearing from you!
