Announcement icon I provide Video/Teletherapy sessions through a secure, private and HIPAA compliant video platform (Simple Practice).
Through 15 years of practice I have found that people usually seek therapy because they are experiencing something that is too difficult to bear without additional help and support. Life can seem unjust when bad things happen to good people, or when best efforts are not leading to desired outcomes. It is also true that these challenges are opportunities for renewal and growth. Especially during a time of crisis or transition, the ability to safely connect and openly share thoughts and feelings, while receiving genuine emotional support, clarifying insights, and effective tools for coping can be truly life changing. This is the gift of therapy.
While I am available to work with those who are seeking counseling for other issues, I specialize in treating problems related to unresolved trauma, grief, and anxiety. To most effectively help clients achieve their goals, I use evidence-based treatment models which I incorporate into a psychodynamic and existential approach.
Research tells us that the therapeutic relationship is the leading factor in determining outcomes, so finding a therapist who is right for you is key. Call for a free phone consultation so that you can interview me and decide if I'm a good fit. HIPAA compliant Telehealth (confidential live video chat) therapy sessions available.
