Our connections with ourselves, others, and our communities can bring tremendous joy, meaning, and fulfillment. In contrast, experiences of disconnection can elicit profound anguish. A crucial step toward relief and enduring growth in psychotherapy starts with an affirming connection with your therapist. Beyond the reasons that bring you in, I am committed to listening to your life story and learning about you as a whole, imperfect person who deserves unconditional care and respect. From there, we can identify opportunities to relate to yourself and others in new ways.
I work with adults seeking psychotherapy for a range of concerns, with specialties in trauma, life transitions, stress, and grief/loss. I am particularly experienced with military and Veteran communities, early and middle adulthood, and healthcare professionals.
Finding a strong fit with a therapist is essential. Let's schedule a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation to discuss what brings you to therapy and how I may help. I welcome your questions and look forward to hearing from you.
