I believe in an accepting, non-judgmental approach to meet you where you are in your journey through life. My goal is to understand your situation from your point of view. Using personality traits of empathy, compassion, and commitment allow me to help you gain insight to have a better understanding of yourself. This, in turn, helps you to accept yourself for who you are while motivating you to create change. My approach goes beyond listening and understanding. I want to teach you skills that can help you manage and problem solve independently. Empowering you towards self-advocacy is my goal in therapy.

At times we may feel unheard, lost, or in need of a return home to self. You may be seeking a calming, stable space to explore self or a grounding source of support for yourself or your child. It can be difficult to seek help, but I am here to remind you of the courage it takes to make this vulnerable step. My name is Callen and I am dedicated to creating a place for your story to be held and seen through a lens of empathy and empowerment. I often define therapy as a process of welcoming home parts of self that have been set aside or forgotten. It is through this process that an integrated and compassionate self can be reborn.

Congratulations on taking the first step toward a major life change! The decision to begin counseling is an immense gesture of self love and courage. Finding the right fit is so important to the therapeutic process. Whatever brings you here - the loss of a loved one, a major life transition, troubling relationship patterns, chronic illness or pain, or feeling stuck and confused about the future - will be explored with openness, curiosity, and acceptance. Things can feel easier, when explored without shame or judgment. I believe that we all have the innate ability to heal with the right connection and understanding.

If you are struggling with an issue in your life and you feel "stuck", you know how hard it can be to ask for help. You may have tried therapy in the past and it had some benefit, but you are ready for a different approach. Have you ever thought, "I get what my therapist says about my anger, sadness, anxiety or trauma, but it doesn't change my pain"? You want to work through your issues because it's draining to spend so much energy keeping them contained, just to get through the day or week. Then you may want to try therapy with me.

Welcome. The most important aspect of psychotherapy is the relationship with the therapist. Working through conflicts or past pain happens through experiencing, not just through merely reading or thinking about things. Gaining self acceptance and discovering how to bring an open heart to your family or intimate relationships does not come simply from acquiring an insight, or from reading a "how to" book. It starts with the healing relationship... and the only way you will find out how comfortable you might feel with your therapist is to talk to them in person. My focus in treatment is on the relationship.
