Affirmative, interactive, client-centered therapy can help you address depression, anxiety, and destructive behaviors. I serve heterosexual, gay, lesbian, bisexual , queer, trans, non-binary, and polyamorous individuals. I practice individual therapy, relationship counseling, and sex therapy. My experience includes working with substance use issues from a harm reduction approach, regardless of whether my client's goal is abstinence or substance use management. I love to help people address trauma, improve communication, take control of their lives, gain sexual confidence, and get their needs met.

Life hands us difficult challenges. Ironically, it is often those challenges that turn into our biggest blessings. But we must be willing to search. We often forget that one of our most beautiful gifts is the freedom to pursue happiness. There is nothing stopping us from that pursuit. The key word is "pursue." We must take action to discover happiness. Once you find it, happiness becomes part of your DNA. Happy people laugh, fall, get up, and laugh again. They can't wait for the next joke.

Life is hard. Therapy can help. I work exclusively over the phone and provide no-cost, telemental health counseling and psychotherapy to people on Medicare. Whether you need help navigating a short term crisis, or you want to take a deep dive into existential questions about the meaning of life, teletherapy can help. While video therapy can be stressful and distracting at times, conversations over the phone are usually more grounded and internally focused.

Are you at a crossroad in your life where you desire transformation but find yourself stuck? Has something happened in your life where you need support? Or maybe you are noticing patterns of behaviors that are not helpful or cause more problems than they solve. You may be at a point in your journey where you want more from life and in response you sense a pull to develop a deeper connection to self and something greater than yourself. Point being, you know you are ready for some sort of shift, and you also know you don’t want to try and do it on your own.

It hurts to feel lost. Have you been wondering how to find your way back, or find your way forward? Things can get better, relationships can heal, and deep connection can be built. Open and honest conversations might feel scary, but they can turn back the tide towards healing and caring.

Anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship issues, lasting effects of past trauma, and other sources of upset can be stressful and challenging to handle. Choosing therapy can be an important step in support of relief, healing, and reaching goals. In therapy, problems and challenges can be re-framed as opportunities for improved self-care, reflection, positive action, learning and growth. I draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, the Gottman Method for Couples, Mindfulness Techniques, current research on habit formation, as well as many other relevant and helpful tools to assist you in reaching your goals.

It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs.
