While I treat a wide array of issues, I maintain a primary focus on the treatment of eating disorders, women's issues , anxiety, depression and supporting students transitioning to college.
The pursuit of mental health wellness, recovery or personal change can be a hopeful and fulfilling endeavor. However, pursuing change can equally feel anxiety provoking or outside of one’s comfort zone. This is particularly true when change may mean altering or letting go of thoughts and behaviors that have felt protective or familiar. It is expected that one may enter into therapy with mixed feelings about the process and desired outcomes. It is my intention to partner with individuals at any stage of readiness to better understand her needs and develop a unique plan of treatment specifically tailored to meet those needs.

Most people could benefit from therapy. I've worked with an enormous range of people, from those looking to make subtle shifts and build insight to those struggling to manage profound, chronic difficulties. I think there's a potency in the therapeutic relationship that draws things to the surface and something penetrating and lasting that can come from taking on the hard things in life with another curious and compassionate person. My aim is to help you explore the impact your past and present have on your well-being and relationships and loosen the grip of old patterns and dynamics that feel rigid and/or chaotic.

We only get one life: no re-dos, no re-ups. Now is the time for you to walk into the healing and freedom you so desperately seek but are afraid to reach for. Maybe it's the past pains and hurts, abuses and traumas that continue to affect you today. Maybe it's the weight of depression or anxiety. Whatever it is- today.is.the.day. To that end, there are many therapeutic modalities I work within. It is not the modality so much that matters but the match between client and clinician. I may be the “expert” in psychology but you are the expert in your life and we need each other to make the counseling process a success.

Over the course of my career, I have supported so many different patients, both individuals and couples, in finding what "feeling better" looks like for them. Many of my patients have mostly satisfying lives, families, careers, etc, but find that something is missing. Or that issues from their past continue to influence the present. Finding what "feeling better" looks like is different for each individual. Patients come to me to figure out what is getting in their way, process sometime complex histories, and break through to the lives they want to be living.

Accepting Clients - Memories from the past flash across your mind – bits and pieces of the worst thing that ever happened to you. You find yourself thinking about all the things you wish you could have done differently and playing out all of the "coulda, shoulda, wouldas". You're feeling constantly on edge, people tell you you're a control freak, and you just can't seem to ever let your guard down. It's exhausting and you're fed up with feeling this way. You're willing to put in the work to feel better - if you only just knew where to start or how to make yourself feel better. You need help, but just don't know how to start.

I approach the therapeutic relationship with respect and care, recognizing the vulnerability it may take just to get here. The process of healing looks different for each person, and in my practice I utilize a blend of holistic and practical skills work for mood, self worth and interpersonal challenges typically seen in Complex PTSD or borderline personality disorder. I work with individuals ages 18 and above, and practice from a social justice framework to identify how the external may be affecting the internal. I have special interest in working with young adults on issues of identity and self worth.

Please note I only work with adults one-on-one....Counseling which is most effective examines problems from all sides - thoughts and feelings and behaviors, but also biological, spiritual, relational, and societal influences. Often people come to me feeling very 'stuck.' But through non-judgmental, gentle exploration from this broad perspective, there are often small changes in one area which help a person start healing. I work within this holistic framework to guide clients in the changes they want to make, and draw from a wide range of proven therapies which fit a person's needs, goals, and values.

What type of Salem mental health professional is right for me?
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.
How to find a therapist in Salem?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. 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. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
