Approaching therapy can be very scary and may feel like just another thing on your to do list. You may feel apprehensive about sharing intimate details of your life with a complete stranger or perhaps therapy isn't your first rodeo at all and you're seeking something specific. No matter the need, I believe therapy is for everyone. The difference between therapy and a friend is 1. You pay a considerable amount of money, give dedicated time to your concerns, have peace and quiet, and resources ready for you to grab at your own leisure instead of someone else telling you the shoulda, coulda, woulda's.

Therapy is a unique experience for each person. It helps you learn yourself, your relationships (past and present), and how you interact with the world. It is a place of self healing and understanding. It is a place to find safety and refuge to manage stress,anger, guilt, anxiety, overwhelming feelings, trauma, interpersonal conflict, and significant life events. I work with youth and adults to help address these issues. I am trained as a psychodynamic therapist, practicing from a relational standpoint. I use several clinical approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment theory, and trauma focused therapy as needed.

There are many issues that preoccupy us in our daily life. In a world full of judgment, you need to trust that your therapist is affirming and ready to hear your "deep, dark secrets." With that, you can then talk about what's really going on and address your true concerns. The journey tends to be complex, layered, and somewhat unpredictable. I focus on my client's regaining control and strive to help them actualize their goals through a supportive, positive, unconditional helping environment.

Everyone feels anxious, or depressed sometimes. We turn to psychotherapy when we are feeling bad too much of the time. Maybe relationships aren't working, or you are dealing with loss. Maybe you haven't achieved what you wanted, or there are things about yourself you want to change. You want it to be different, but it hasn't happened yet. Therapy helps change the things that keep you from getting what you need, and being who you want to be. I work with adults, both individuals and couples.
