Life can be crazy sometimes and as a therapist, I want to walk with you through anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, a new medical diagnosis that threatens life as you know it, or transitioning from one stage in life to another. Therapy can be a long or short journey to help you gain the insight needed to explore how past and present experiences impact your ability to manage life's daily stressors and help you develop the coping skills you need to get on with your life. I strive to establish a therapeutic relationship that builds on trust, honesty, empathy and compassion as the pathway to healing and wellness for yourself.

Our minds are often full of made up stories we have been telling ourselves for years. Often, they are stories that have been written based on who others have told us we are or are "supposed" to be. My clients are those who want to rewrite the stories that create a sense of heaviness or limit their life experience, including stories full of anxiety and negative thoughts. I help those who are looking to find inner peace, clarity, a better understanding of themselves, and freedom from the heaviness our minds and life experiences can bring.

Starting therapy is a challenging decision as we typically feel that we should manage things on our own. However, you realize that your symptoms are worsening. You may notice that it's interfering with your performance at school/work. You are having more difficulties getting out of bed and/or you may be overwhelmed by everything going on. You start realizing that now you are avoiding the things you used to do because it gives you temporary relief from your anxiety. I would like to help you explore the underlying causes and provide you with tools to enjoy what's important to you.

Sometimes, life deals us an awful hand with so many wounds and hurts that we have no idea how we'll get through. We feel sad, anxious, overwhelmed, angry, depressed and don't know how to move forward with that emotion. We find ourselves stuck in the same patterns and don't know how to change them. Frequently, our relationships struggle as a result. I believe in becoming whole and healing from these wounds and hurts. I believe each person has innate characteristics that make this healing possible. In therapy, our goal is to remove these constraints that prevent you from accessing your core Self and create a life that feels lighter.

Online Therapists

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.
