Announcement icon I am conducting sessions primarily on the phone but am open to video options during the COVID-19 crisis.
I appreciate how difficult it is to talk about your problems, and how important it is to walk into a therapist's office and feel safe and respected. Perhaps you suffer from anxiety, or depression, and feel overwhelmed. Confused. You may feel powerless in your relationships, job, or entire life. I want to help you explore what has made you feel this way, and to challenge those negative thoughts and assumptions that prevent you from feeling good about yourself and having more control over your life. I can help you develop coping skills to challenge feelings of hopelessness and manage your anxiety.
While I am a good listener, I am not a silent partner in our work together. I believe that learning how to clearly communicate your thoughts and needs in therapy is a vital skill which translates to the rest of your life. Feeling calm and capable can make you a better listener too.
I understand the challenges creative artists face daily (M.F.A./Theater), but I also work with clients who coping with stressful workplaces, ADHD, and the unique issues of first and second generation Americans.
