Announcement icon I am providing sessions by phone and teletherapy. I use a HIPAA compliant Zoom platform for teletherapy sessions.
Life can feel better. If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, and/or experiencing changes in relationships, school, or work, we can work together to help you increase self-awareness and self-acceptance. My approach is to listen and help you share your story and on a practical level to learn effective coping strategies, communication, time management and relationship skills. We will work together to identify your personal goals and what steps are needed to achieve them. I also have specific experience with adults on the autism spectrum, whether you are diagnosed or exploring the diagnosis.
Together we will explore what is working and what is not working in your life, and how to balance change with self-acceptance. I have a high regard for the individuality of each of my clients and I believe the human population is diverse in many ways including neurodiversity.
It isn't easy to share your story with a new person. If you have been putting off going to therapy or you have found it difficult to talk to a therapist in the past, my clients tell me that they find me easy to talk to, and I enjoy meeting all kinds of people. Therapy is something that you do for yourself, and my goal is to make it helpful for you.
