The first time I sought therapy, my heart was broken. Not just from a relationship ending, but from a dawning realization that parts of me felt unworthy of love. Looking back now, such painful forays into therapy are also, in a way, exciting. They are a wake up call to evolve, to shed an old skin, and to transform into a more alive and pure us. To let go of worn out, imprisoning, and burdensome stories, beliefs, and defenses. The catalyst - the challenging event or circumstances that brought you to these words - is probably a doorway, and could be the beginning of a grand adventure…

You have BIG feelings and they get the best of you and you lose it or you hide them so the world can’t use them against you. But you can’t slow down for fear of what may happen if painful memories overwhelm you. There are parts of you that are just too much and you don't know what to do. You want to break down unhelpful patterns of overthinking, build self-esteem and be able to say "no". You can learn about how your mind & body work together - let me help you with that. I believe that you are the expert of your own experience and often just need to be led to insight and change.

You're lost in the weeds of to-do's, obligations, & responsibilities; your mind a cacophony of distractions clamoring for your attention. At some point, this life you built got so busy that you're no longer enjoying it. Instead, you're overwhelmed by the anxiety of it all; sure that something will go horribly wrong. You tell yourself that these worries aren't real, just scary stories you contemplate- your own "monster under the bed". So you push them to the back of your mind and slap a smile on your face, forging on. Unfortunately, until we open the door to face the boogeyman, that gnawing feeling of dread won't ever really go away.

Do you feel disconnected - from yourself, your body, or what you want? Perhaps you have been through a trauma or life event that has shaken your beliefs about the world. Maybe chasing perfection or validation has left you unfulfilled. If you can no longer ignore urgent signals from your mind and body, I can help you become clearer, calmer and more connected. I work with people who want to shift unhealthy patterns and beliefs, tap into their resiliency, and connect with their authentic self. I invite you to cultivate radical self compassion, regulate your nervous system, and gain insight into your patterns and values.

I'm a kind, patient, and intelligent therapist who works great with adult individuals and couples that are facing challenging life transitions. This includes, but is not limited to, retirement, moving, new or lost job, becoming new parents, chronic health diagnosis, caretaker burden or loss of a loved one. I understand that going through loss and transition can feel overwhelming, isolating, scary, make someone feel lost, stuck or angry, and have a negative impact on one's sleep, nutrition, relationships, and daily functioning in life.

It is essential that your therapist is able to understand your 'starting point' in order to help you pursue your personal and relationship objectives. It is my honor to assist you.

Any individual that is suffering from addiction, a lack of motivation to conquer their goals, or looking to explore a deeper practice of mindfulness in their day to day life can benefit from the ongoing support that counseling can provide. Chronic relapsing, low self esteem, and barriers created through active addiction will prevent us from recovery. Maybe you have a family member that is suffering or you would like to receive more information on substance use disorder, I can help educate and provide coping strategies to give you more peace of mind as you support your loved one.

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialized therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
