Everyone experiences change in life, and sometimes those transitions are hard to manage alone. Uncomfortable feelings are a signal that it's time for something to change. I can assist you in exploring your options and making choices to put you back on track. My goal is to help you gain confidence and feel more in control. Feelings are normal, but can seem overwhelming without an outlet. Together we can discover ways to improve your comfort with yourself and those you care about, whether you are dealing with a loss or one of the other bumps along life's road.

I support families, couples, and individuals under stress. I work with clients to uncover contexts and patterns of thoughts and behaviors that are causing distress, as well as formulate strategies that lead to visible change. Often, you as the client already know the "answers" but could use support in living those answers out. The end goal is growth; the client should be able to look back at our work together and see a difference.

You want to reach your optimal level of emotional and interpersonal well-being: In other words, you want to feel better. But, managing chronic health conditions, feeling overwhelmed by high levels of stress and anxiety, and facing unexpected and sudden loss/grief can be enormous tasks, especially during our challenging times. Across the lifespan, we face emotional, relational, and physical difficulties that are often best navigated when we are heard, supported, and able to cultivate a natural curiosity that invites us to change

*No Current Availability* To seek therapy takes courage and curiosity. The process of therapy gives us the opportunity to explore the impact of the multiple systems with which we are connected- family, work, home, friends, community- in the context of an affirming relationship with the therapist. Through this process, we come to better understand how we have interacted with these systems over time, the strategies we have developed to navigate them successfully, and how these systems have impacted us, contributing to both opportunities and challenges.

I have had the honor and privilege of working with adults in a wide variety of settings and situations. From these experiences, I have learned the importance of taking a non-judgmental and empathic stance with all my clients. I believe that everyone deserves to have a safe and welcoming space to enter where they can work on whatever is on their mind without having to be concerned about what the therapist thinks or feels. Coming to therapy can be difficult because it can mean having to face some difficult truths and realizations. Together, we will work at a pace that is appropriate and manageable to achieve your goals.

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.

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.
