What do you look for in a therapist? What's important? Surprisingly, age, gender, years of training and theoretical orientation are not the primary factors correlated with the effectiveness of a therapist. So how do you choose someone? Is it by their picture? The best website? The one that's taking new clients? Finding the right person can be incredibly difficult. Research suggests that the most important factors in positive therapeutic outcomes are the therapeutic alliance, working together to set collaborative goals, and the therapist's ability to be empathetic, accepting and genuine.

I am passionate about providing a non-judgemental space where everyone feels welcomed, comfortable, and empowered.  Addiction has many underlying causes that vary from person to person. I believe that the addictive behavior is the symptom, and exploring the feelings, established cycles, and root causes behind those behaviors is where the work towards recovery begins- reframing thought patterns, recognizing and nurturing strengths, and developing new coping skills to create the life you choose for yourself.

You often post pictures of your happy family on social media, but deep down you know something is missing and it has been missing for awhile. Every time you try to talk with your partner, you end up in an argument. It seems that one of you is usually yelling and the other shutting down completely or running away.Both of you are left with no resolution to the problem and feeling angry, sad, and alone.

Individuals seeking therapy have one thing in common: the wish to achieve relief and realize goals that feel elusive. Through careful listening and interviewing, I'll help you build on your strengths and interrupt the patterns that no longer work for you (or others). The result of therapy treatment should be that you no longer feel "stuck" --- instead, you should feel as though life offers more possibilities.

Do you feel that you've exhausted your personal resources regarding your issues and feel there is nowhere you can turn? Have you considered therapy? Therapy is a confidential process where you can feel safe to talk about the challenges of life and what it is that is bothering you or causing you to need help.
