If you're looking to live your best life and need a safe place to work through life's challenges, I can help! I support people with anxiety, self esteem struggles, interpersonal or relationship issues, life transitions, career difficulties, managing stress, feeling "stuck", health concerns, and/or depression. I also work with all types of partnerships and commitments (romantic or otherwise) on a range of concerns. Therapy doesn't have to wait for a crisis. It can just be a space to process daily events. Being a person is hard sometimes!
Please contact me to see if we'd be a good match! My practice offers affordable, flexible, and individualized sessions to make therapy work for you. If I can't help, I can match you with someone in our practice who would be a great fit. I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your version of a happy and healthy life!
I work with clients to create an environment that feels supportive, helpful, and safe. I tailor the therapy experience to each person. Sessions can be whatever you need them to be in that moment. There's no "right" way to do therapy! I treat clients holistically, as I believe that physical, mental, and social health are all connected.
