Announcement icon Client health and wellbeing is my main concern. I am conducting telehealth sessions only at this time.
Do you find yourself feeling stuck in certain patterns, clouded by emotions that are difficult to understand? Are you hoping to gain insight on how your past experiences influence the present? Maybe you are looking for practical coping skills to manage the challenges that come with day-to-day life? Whatever it may be that brought you into therapy, my number one priority is ensuring that you feel safe, supported, and validated.
Previous clients have shared that they appreciate my warmth and acceptance, allowing for us to build a trusting and secure relationship. It is my belief that therapy should be collaborative, and that you are the expert of your own life. You get to decide how our time is spent, and together we can explore how to move forward for you to gain the most.
My therapeutic style is eclectic, adjusting to your unique personality and goals. I mainly pull from Person-Centered Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Attachment Theory, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Putting aside the therapist lingo, my role at the end of the day is to gently guide you, and be with you, throughout your process.
