Do you feel like you’re doing well overall - but for some reason you’re still feeling unfulfilled or unsatisfied? You work hard but never feel like you’re doing enough. You’re keeping it all together but feeling overwhelmed and exhausted in your free time. Maybe you're facing (or going thru) a significant transition in your life & feeling a bit unbalanced or shook-up as a result. My work centers around increasing self-awareness, developing strategies for coping with the natural stress of life, and learning to live more authentically. All it takes is motivation to work, courage to examine yourself, and a commitment to making changes.
I utilize ACT/CBT concepts & skills and a person-centered approach to help my clients make change & move forward. My specialty areas include life transitions; anxiety/depression; LGBTQ+; identity issues (personal/sexual/gender); men's issues, and emerging adulthood. My goal is to help you move toward a life more authentically aligned with your chosen values.
I'm a Virtual-Only provider & I'm currently accepting new clients according to appropriateness. It's important to me that my therapeutic style/approach are well-suited to my clients' needs & therapeutic goals. You deserve that. Therefore I always start with a 15 min(+/-) phone conversation - during which we can get a sense of whether we might be a good fit.
