I've found it helpful in my practice to be direct and to the point, while maintaining professional and nurturing relationships with my clients. I believe strongly in modeling healthy boundaries, and helping clients to strengthen their own. I love what I do, and I know my clients can sense that. I think my clients can also sense the great respect I have for them. Asking for help is never easy. Especially when one feels vulnerable.

"We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection." -Brené Brown. So often it is the sense of connection between us that leads to, or at least contributes to, our distress. As a marriage and family therapist, I believe it is important to help individuals, couples, and families to be able to connect more authentically, developing healthy boundaries which allow for a balance of connection and autonomy.

People often look for a coach or a counselor because they feel like something is wrong in their lives. Maybe you aren’t doing “good enough,” in school, or you feel like you can’t handle the endless train of stressors that confront you in your daily life. Maybe you have trouble finding meaningful connections with friends, family, or your romantic partner. I understand, because I sometimes feel this way, too. This is part of the human condition. Remember, you are constantly in the process of becoming who you are, and all these difficulties are twists and turns on that path towards yourself. I will walk that path with you.

My perspective is that everyone's life has a story, and therapy is a way to identify and change that story to fit with your goals, values and designs. Seeking therapy can be difficult, and I enjoy supporting people in finding their narrative and re-writing it the way they desire to fit their needs. As a strength-based and client-centered therapist, I believe that meeting people where they are enables them to feel at ease and supported in the process. Helping others identify their innate strengths and using them is a large part of my philosophy.

I am a strong believer that successful therapy is centered around finding a therapist that’s a good fit for you. It can be hard to make steps toward change- whether those big changes or small. I focus both on developing new strengths and skills to effectively manage life’s difficulties in the short term, while gaining insight into reasons behind behaviors to regain the control and understanding of past patterns to facilitate future autonomy in handling life’s stressors. My style has been described by clients as supportive, warm, interactive, easy to talk to, direct, nonjudgmental while also being able to utilize humor & creativity.

I believe therapy is about growth, going deeper and finding a better way to live. Sometimes people feel fear and frustration, anger and hurt, conflict and confusion. I value providing a safe, supportive place where they can explore these difficulties and discover a viable path to their goals. Even in such difficult spots as death and dying, illness, loss, or addiction, a way can be found by working together.

Modern life presents a number of challenges for adults and families. It can be difficult to balance all of the conflicting demands, especially if we are also trying to care for others or carrying the weight of past traumas or other unresolved issues. This can lead to increasing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and anger, and can interfere with the relationships we value and need. None of us are perfect, but we all deserve the chance to live a life consistent with our values and goals.

Teletherapy Offered...People are not their diagnoses even though these labels can sometimes be informative. I prefer to get to know you. Specifically, what do you want out of therapy? What is currently working for you, not working? What brings you in to see me in this moment? I believe that therapy is not only about reducing our suffering, but also finding meaning and fulfillment in our lives. It is about getting to know ourselves, parts that we love, parts that we are afraid of, parts that we don't yet understand. People are also not things that need to be "fixed", instead, this is a place for healing, self-compassion, and growth.
