We are living in a difficult & confusing time. Anxiety from being alone or staying in place can make you feel crazy or see things in our relationships that concern us. Do you feel like you need to make some changes with your life & relationships? Many factors can contribute and affect our lives that we may not realize. When we make changes to ourselves it affects those around us. Identifying these factors can help bring clarity to you & your family and develop strength for all involved. Changes and transitions in life can be tough & can cause depression, anxiety and questions. Working through this can help with overall recovery.

**During this time I am still working with patients through phone and zoom/FaceTime sessions** My therapeutic approach is to make each person I work with feel comfortable and safe. Engagement and the therapeutic relationship is everything. I hope to help the people I work with identify their goals and develop a plan to make them happen. Often this means facing shame, vulnerability, and fear. However, with my support and some courage we can help you take the necessary first steps to recovery.

How can you find the therapist that's right for you? You might consider calling a few people to see if you connect well on the phone. I'd be glad to talk with you, even meet briefly in person if that would help you make a decision. In the meantime, here are a few things that you might want to know about me as they have influenced the way I do therapy.

Counseling can be a responsive process, providing support and facilitating insight as the client explores and moves through past and present challenges. It can also be a preventive process, allowing clients to clarify and build on internal strengths that promote wellness and resiliency. My treatment approach is both cognitive-behavioral (focused on the connections between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors) and psychoeducational (promoting the building of social and emotional skills). From a foundation of self-awareness, we can help you to expand your coping strategies and improve your relationships.

I bring 15 years of post-graduate experience to my work with clients who are experiencing emotional distress from mild to severe. Perhaps you are wanting to change something about the way you are living life, or are seeking relief from internal or external difficulties. Some clients tell me that the rest of the world seems like it is going about its business, happy and "normal", and they feel like they don't fit in, or that it takes more energy than it seems like it should to get through their days.
