Announcement icon I'm looking forward to seeing you by video and possibly welcoming some clients back to the office in the next few months.
I hope many different clients will enjoy my comfortable office, and time spent with an empathetic person to help meet goals, become fully in touch with how and what they feel, and find in themselves the resolve to move forward in their lives with purpose. The types of clients that tend to do well with me are looking for expertise, connection, positive regard and warmth. They are ready to commit to the therapy process. and they are mostly very brave people who seldom will admit that at first. Most have been hurt in one way or another but they haven't usually gotten much chance to tell someone. Our connection opens that chance.
My understanding of bipolar treatment is comprehensive, unique and based on guidelines to receive concurrent medical (yes meds) and counseling care. I also get managing that takes courage and I will be you biggest ally in creating personalized care. My other work has centered on life transitions, depression, anxiety, loss, and couples counseling.
When you sit with me, you are in a safe space: a place to explore the things that bother you and to be really respected and heard. Therapy is not easy, but many people over time feel supported by me to explore the hardest things and they competently take over my job and are able to face their challenges with much greater confidence.
