Announcement icon I'll be on maternity leave from Dec '21 through March '22. Please email me if you're interested in starting virtual sessions in April.
The process of therapy is one of self exploration and self discovery. Many of my clients seek therapy during life transitions or when experiencing relationship challenges. Some suffer from lack of self confidence, or are plagued by anxiety without an understanding of its cause. Through our work together I help people gain insight and understanding about the problems they’re encountering and become aware of unhelpful patterns they may be repeating. As a result of gaining new perspectives and understanding their emotional landscape on a deeper level, my clients often experience life in a more rich and meaningful way.
First we'll explore your past and early relationships. Once we understand how your past shaped your current situation we'll work together to find new ways of interacting with others and the world around you. We'll work collaboratively to solve problems, connect with strengths, and let go of whatever is interfering with personal and professional success.
A successful therapeutic experience begins with feeling a good connection or “fit” with me as a practitioner. For this reason I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation. If it feels that I am suited to your needs, we can schedule an initial appointment to develop a collaborative plan for moving toward your goals. Please e-mail me to set up a consultation.
