"Relax as it is."-Pema Chodron. It's a beautifully simple phrase yet it requires two powerful features: letting go and acceptance. Our life shapes the stories we tell ourselves and so often these stories foster feelings of anxiety, sadness, frustration, anger and blame (of ourselves and of those close to us). The changes that life always bestow on us are often unwelcome triggers causing us to notice how these ways of thinking can negatively impact our overall well-being. By taking the opportunity to look at ourselves in an honest and gentle way we create new pathways to accept and let go.

Life is full of change and the unexpected. Have you been blindsided by one of the many curveballs life can throw at you? Do you feel overwhelmed, lost, or directionless? Realigning after a huge change- be it the loss of a loved one, separation/divorce, job change, health shift, or even college graduation- can be a challenging process. I love to help people adjust, grow, and transform though these shifts, seeing the forest through the trees to come to a fuller, more centered perspective on all that life still has to offer. Finding our way back to peace can be demanding and we could all use some support in this process.

Good therapy happens when you and your therapist work collaboratively to achieve your goals, you feel truly heard and understood and your therapist has the knowledge and experience to help you identify the obstacles to achieving your goals. I am passionate about the work I do with children, adolescents and adults and feel fortunate to enjoy going in each day. I've been told by many, I have a warm, caring style and frequently use humor in sessions. I help people understand the connection between their thoughts feelings and behaviors and ways in which they can make changes to find relief from the stressors they experience.

I believe that having a safe space where we can let go of what is troubling us, and begin to heal, is a critical piece of good self care. I have years of experience working with clients who present not only with substance use disorder, but also with depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, attatchment issues, emotional regulation challenges, and other co occurring disorders. I feel honored that I get to be a part of my clients' journeys, as I watch them grow, and become better, healthier versions of themselves.

What type of Madison 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Madison?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
