Perhaps you’re new to therapy and you can’t quite believe you’re about to pick up the phone to make an appointment.
Or, you may have seen several counselors over the years and you know a little something about what you’re looking for.
I'd like to help you understand your own “yes, it’s time to see someone” and also decide if I am the person you’re ready to call.
When you commit to going to therapy, you introduce a new kind of structure to your life.
Personally, I have a huge appreciation for structure. That means I love to make healthy structures work and I also recognize the ways that structures can become limiting and even punishing.
It’s my goal to help you look at you and maybe your relationships and the way you’ve built your life, and decide what works for you.
During our sessions, we might discover that you need to be liberated from your own rigid habits or we might find that new frameworks will further your growth.
We (together) look for how you can get closer to the people who matter to you and help you separate from those who might cause stress and dysfunction.
And, my own respect for structure means that I’m prompt, responsive, and consistent. I respect your time and use our time together to help you find real insights that help you continue to make positive changes between our sessions.
My door is open to individuals and both straight and LGBTQIA couples who want more connection and balance in their lives.
You know you’ve found the right therapist when you realize you can trust them with your most painful stories and deepest fears.
You feel seen and understood. You leave the session feeling hopeful and more prepared to meet the challenges of your life.
As a therapist, the ability to hold and guide my clients is inspired by my empathetic nature, and it’s sustained by my studies and my life experience. My theoretical lens has been informed by family systems, humanistic theories, strength-based and trauma-informed approaches, attachment models, mindfulness practices, and experiential education.
Ultimately, you come to therapy because you find you’re struggling - with relationships, with work, with keeping all the balls in the air. There’s a little voice within you that says “something’s not quite right.”
You and your partner come to therapy together because you recognize that you’re locked in conflict or you’ve lost track of one another in the everyday chaos of life.
I invite you call me to set up complimentary session phone session so we can discuss how I can help you heal and grow.
