Finding the right therapist is important. I approach therapy in a warm and relational way, and believe confidentiality and non-judgmental responses are crucial to creating a safe and trusting space. I know it can be hard to open up and start the process, so I make sure my client's feel comfortable to talk about the hard things and share about themselves authentically. If you are going through a transition, want to process past trauma, or anticipate something difficult coming, experiencing depression or anxiety, adolescent struggles, or want personal growth- reach out!

A person comes to therapy when their present ways of being in relationship, or in the world, no longer seem to hold the meaning they once did. My aim is to support you in creating a new foundation of hope, purpose, and meaning in your life. I help people seek wholeness through the integration of mind, body, and soul, thus expanding their current level of understanding, and in so doing, creating the capacity to live more meaningfully.

My practice focuses on psychological evaluations for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Some reasons folks seek my help is to assess for autism and other developmental disabilities, learning disorders, and ADHD/ADD. In some cases, I am asked to perform testing to inform the efficacy of ADHD/ADD medication through the use of continuous performance testing. In sum, my approach is to learn about the whole person rather than rely on tests alone to produce an evaluation best suited to your needs.

Self-Harming (Cutting) Therapists

It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects.

People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.
