From my perspective, the key factor in being able to examine your individual reasons is based upon the relationship between yourself and your therapist. I offer a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment in order to explore your individual needs with a commitment to placing the highest priority on your care. We will work collaboratively to identify and address your concerns in order to foster meaningful change in your life.

"I offer collaborative psychotherapy for anxiety, depression, and substance abuse, using naturalistic research-supported approaches that enhance awareness, access strengths, and build skills. These approaches - which vary according to individual needs and preferences - include mindfulness, depth-oriented counseling, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Existential Psychotherapy. Particular concerns may include worry, panic, obsession, procrastination, loss/grief, self-esteem, stress, frustration, habits, and/or motivation. The overarching model promotes psychological growth, self-actualization, transcendence of purpose-limiting "world views," and personal empowerment."

"We all have the capacity to heal. From difficult relationships, anxiety, depression, chronic stress and/or pain, parenting challenges, infertility, traumatic life experiences, or other sources of distress. You have the capacity to heal. To live your most extraordinary life each and every day. To live wholly. People usually enter therapy because something important isn't working in their lives. Though healing work sometimes feels lonely, particularly when you first begin, you do not have to begin this journey alone. With the right guidance, the work can quickly become empowering, energizing, even enlightening, as you begin to have access to your whole self once again."

"You are often nervous and feel like you are an imposter. Would you like to be free from doubt and fear? Have you attempted more education, moving, different friends, or self-medicating because you continually feel different? When you attend business meetings or social gatherings do you feel more like your 12 year old self rather than an adult? Are you also haunted by childhood memories of not belonging? You are an individual in transition wanting to move closer to your professional goals."

I then work with the client to use their strengths to help them form a new story, a story where they change ingrained habits and live the life they have always dreamed of living. I believe in hope and transformation and see psychotherapy as a way to access these qualities within oneself.
