About

I am taking new online clients. You will find me empathetic, with interest in your past, the now, and what you'd like in the future. Clients that resonate with me look for expertise, connection, humor, positive regard, support, and warmth. They are ready to commit to the therapy process but sometimes nervous about it. Why wouldn't you be? Things like trauma, anxiety, couple difficulties, bipolar or life changes are daunting. My sensitive approach helps open the doors to these and makes me people feel safe talking with me, at their pace. Once the doors are open, real transformation and healing become possible.
My understanding of bipolar treatment is comprehensive, unique and based on guidelines to receive concurrent medical (yes meds) and counseling care. I also understand managing that takes courage and I will be your biggest ally in creating personalized care. Other specialties focus on life transitions, depression, anxiety, loss, and couples counseling.
You sit in a safe space with me: 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. I hope to talk with you soon.
