Deciding to take those initial first steps toward seeking help through psychotherapy can be challenging. Some initial concerns may include, "How will I know if the therapist is competent?" "What if they judge me?" "Will I feel comfortable telling them what I am really feeling and thinking?" These concerns are extremely common in trying to find the right therapist for you. The key phrase is "the right therapist for YOU..." Everyone is different with different needs. I encourage you to read about my experience and the services I provide in to see if I may be the right therapist for you.

I have a wide-ranging experience working with young children to adults. My therapy patients tend to be young adults and middle aged individuals. Affording insight in the lifespan is my goal, and I focus on reaching that goal in a number of different ways. Ultimately, I leave it to my clients to tell me where they want to go and we find a path to get there. Through better insight and goal-oriented purpose, we identify the outcomes to strive for.
