The following is a sample of the clients that I serve in my counseling practice: LGBTQ adolescents and adults (individuals, couples) * Adolescents whom are struggling at home, in school, and in the community * Those struggling with depression, anxiety, substance use, and other mental health issues.

When dealing with life's struggles, no matter how big or small, we often wish we could find someone who understands, is supportive, takes the time to listen, and who will help create a safe and supportive environment and build a trusting relationship to help navigate through life's twists and turns.

Ease, change and joy are accessible. I know you can emerge from distress. I have seen radical growth-- again and again. My therapeutic approach is designed for each person's individual internal world. I design each session using a variety of active and engaged interventions, like EMDR, IFS, and Process. We work to uncover the hurt parts that have taken over your life. The “stuck-ness” seems to dissipate. In an atmosphere of love and total acceptance, I use proven interventions to bring awareness and internal movement.

Forrest Gump may have said it best, "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get." So... how do we cope with what we 'get'? Or -- how do we change it up if need be? Here you may be at a crossroads. Maybe you need help navigating intense emotions, relationships or loss. Maybe covid-life has hit you hard. Therapy can help with many of life's challenges; even help to restore a sense of joy and curiosity; agency and ability. Together we can build understanding and cultivate a sense of balance that is beneficial for you and your relationships.

Are you struggling to make meaning of your life? Have you lost connection to your true nature? Perhaps you are no longer experiencing a sense of belonging? Therapy is a bridge that leads you to understand more about yourself and realize that you have choices and untapped resources within you. It can be difficult to call a therapist, however, I encourage you to take the first step to cross over that bridge. What waits on the other side is enhanced awareness of your relationships, insight into the roots of your problems, and ultimately a feeling of inner peace and harmony.

What type of Saratoga mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. 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.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Saratoga?
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.

What method of therapy is right for me?
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. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
