My approach to therapy is creative and collaborative. I believe each individual – no matter their age or gender identity – is unique and should have a therapist who is genuine, practices unconditional positive regard, and has empathic understanding. In session, I will approach the client where they are and with what they may currently be experiencing. My approach starts with building a positive, warm, and trusting relationship. This will provide a foundation of support, encouragement, and connection, and after that the work can truly begin. I do not expect a client to work harder in our relationship than I am willing to do myself.

As a person experiencing anxiety, a stressful life transition, overwhelming emotions or symptoms of trauma, you are motivated to feel good again and reclaim your life. You’ve tried to fix it on your own, but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. You’re worried things might get worse, or maybe they already have. You know healing is possible, but it seems out of reach. Choosing to start, or restart therapy can be scary! You want to make sure you select the right person who you can really connect with and feel confident has the expertise to help.

Have you forgotten why you made the decisions that led you to this moment? Talk therapy can offer a way forward. Therapy can be a safe space to catch your breath, to talk out ideas that feel strange or risky, and to devise a new strategy for reconnecting with your best self.

Are you regularly feeling overwhelmed? Experiencing intimacy or communication problems in your relationships? Feeling run down and uncertain how to get going again? Let's work together to re-discover your strengths and improve how you feel about yourself and others around you. Our approach to counseling combines Cognitive-Behavioral therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness practices. CBT is a widely used form of therapy with which you will learn (1) to tune into your self-talk, (2) recognize how your self-talk impacts your feelings and decisions, and (3) how to re-frame those unhelpful thoughts into more positive ones.

People settle, for things in their lives they don’t really like, that they feel powerless to change. I work with both the conscious and unconscious aspects, sometimes indirectly, in ways that engender changes on both of these levels. I enable and empower my clients to open up to new directions and possibilities, to new ways of feeling, doing, and being.
