I'm a firm believer that taking good care of your emotional well-being is integral to optimizing overall health and wellness. Making the decision to pursue therapy is a process that requires strength and vulnerability. I am here to meet your lived experience with empathy, humility, curiosity, and compassion. Confronting painful experiences is challenging, and our work together may be hard at times as a result. I've also witnessed how these same challenges present opportunities for healing and growth.

We often seek support when we feel stuck or hopeless. This could be in our relationship, our family, or within ourselves. The strategies we've used for years to address conflict, envision our future, manage stress, protect ourselves, form relationships, ask for help, or otherwise move in the world stop working. The strain of this transition and the uncertainty that comes with change can cause many symptoms. My goal is to work transparently with you to try something new, explaining theories, exploring causes, asking what styles resonate, and adjusting throughout sessions to equally challenge and support.

I emphasize a collaborative approach to therapy--I bring 24 years of clinical experience, as well as enthusiasm, hope, and a dose of humor, and ask only that you bring an openness to change. Together, we identify specific life goals and generate plans to achieve them. Ultimately, you will come to understand that you make perfect sense; you may just not have been able to use this self-awareness to make the most productive decisions. My strong suit is quickly identifying underlying problems and patterns, as well as personal strengths and resources, and from there we chart your personal path.

Are you in a relationship where you feel like you are not being understood? Do you feel lost, alone, or that your communication always leads you to a brick wall? Are you confused at times about your own goals and aspirations? If so, you are not alone, you are not the only one whose social media tells a different story than the one you are bottling up inside.

Searching for the right therapist can be a confusing, overwhelming process, but congratulations on taking the first step! Prioritizing you or your child’s mental health while juggling other stressors and responsibilities in life can be difficult, but is very necessary and important. I believe that everyone deserves treatment that is created specifically to target one’s own symptoms, issues, goals, and life story.

What type of Columbia 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 Columbia?
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.
