Announcement icon During this time I am offering telehealth (video or phone) counseling exclusively! I want to support you in staying safe and reducing germs.
I know that making the decision to search for a therapist is sometimes a difficult first step. Well done on prioritizing your wellness and finding help! Showing up (physically or through tele-health) is often the hardest part. It is my life's honor to come alongside you and assist you with your journey. Whether anxiety is holding you captive from your joy, past trauma is haunting your thoughts, or just a pivotal moment in life has you confused on where to go next, you are not alone in your process. I deeply enjoy what I do and it's important to me to hold space for each person I encounter in my office.
I offer a dynamic approach, which is a fancy way of saying I love using and blending different modalities of therapy to meet your needs specifically. Each session can be vastly different depending on who is sitting in front of me. I believe in a person-centered approach that focuses on honing your strengths while also supporting and challenging your growth.
Feel free to call, text, or email if you'd like to set up a free consultation to see if I may be the right person for you. I think finding a therapist that is the right fit is vital to the process and I will not hesitate to refer you to a colleague if I am not able to meet your needs. Therapy is a meaningful process & I commend you on beginning your journey.
