Announcement icon I am taking new clients and am happy to just do 1-2 sessions for support during this unusual time. All sessions will be video/phone for now
My emphasis is building a therapy experience that is uniquely for you and designed to help you achieve your goals. I practice from a relational standpoint, which means in therapy we create a profoundly significant relationship that focuses on you and your concerns. There is lots of back and forth discussion as we work, because a team is so much better at conquering problems than a person alone. Together we can face your challenges and overcome them, along the way finding that best person (or couple) that you want to be.
I have strong experience working with folks with bipolar disorder and/or their families. My understanding in this area is comprehensive and unique. I'm passionate about work with teens, with people experiencing grief, life transitions, or interpersonal challenges, and I also work with couples regularly.
When you come to my therapy 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 who come to me feel supported to explore the hardest things and over time they competently take over my job and are able to face their challenges with much greater confidence.
