Finding a new therapist can be hard. I believe that the most important part of therapy is having the right fit with the right therapist. In order to be open to the process you have to feel comfortable with your provider. Therapy should be a tool to find personal strengths and develop new resources. Therapy is a good place to start looking at where you might be stuck and searching for new strategies to add to your life. I hope that I can be a part of your journey. Our new location is now open and we’re seeing clients both in person and for telehealth.

Or has been dealing with a physical illness, and now wants support in coming back into life in a new way. It can be easy to forget that we are not the lives we have created, we are so much more. Having help recognizing where you are going and why, and dealing with the problems that show up along the way can be necessary in looking at exactly what is happening, why they are happening, and what you want/need to change to make things so much easier to handle so you can bring in joy, peace, and your dreams.

If you are struggling in life, chances are you have a diagnosis which is termed a psychiatric disorder- but diagnoses only define the negative aspects of who you are! In fact, most "disorders" have a wealth of amazingly positive traits also associated with them. Together, you and I will work to uncover your superpowers- those positive traits that diagnoses don't cover, and which make you amazing. Some of the therapies I incorporate into my practice include art therapy, play therapy, guided visualizations and rituals, narrative therapy, practical life skills (CBT), Reiki, mindfulness and other relaxation techniques.
