How does anyone choose a therapist? The variety of options are daunting, and while many, many people have been to or go to a therapist, it is not a topic easily discussed, so it can be hard to find a recommendation. Many people resort to picking the person whose face looked nice, or went to a school they recognize, or work in a convenient location or accept their insurance. Often these techniques are sufficient, but when they are not it is a great loss, as it takes so much courage to look for a therapist in the first place.

Seeking to improve our relationship with ourselves and others can feel uncertain and overwhelming. As a therapist, I strive to remove the barriers that many come across by providing an open, trusting, and nonjudgmental space where self-acceptance and healing can be fostered for individuals and for partnerships. Difficulties such as life transitions, relationship challenges, trauma, and unexpected events can leave us feeling disconnected and isolated. Feelings of depression, anxiety, and low self-worth can be processed and untangled with the collaborative experience of therapy.
