My office is handicap accessible, and I enjoy working with people of diverse backgrounds who are struggling with a variety of concerns. Life can be difficult for so many different reasons, and I feel honored when I am invited to understand those struggles and concerns, then participate in a journey to overcome them.
Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, or another type of mood disorder, a change in a key relationship such as a break-up or other loss, problems with parent or child relationships, sexual matters, a porn addiction, trauma or abuse history, or something else, I am passionate about helping clients feel heard, safe, and understood, and walking with them on their path to healing.
The majority of therapists tend to be trained in symptom-management approaches, and often have had only 2 years of supervised experience. In my practice, I use what’s called a ‘psychodynamic approach’ to therapy, which is a long-term approach to addressing and working through your concerns at the root of the problem. I have never been satisfied with approaches that make you try to think you’re way better or that try to help you accept your symptoms for the long-term. Rather, I put a strong focus on building a unique, authentic, therapeutic relationship, which acts as a catalyst for healing and change. I have never seen two people who are just alike, and I have never had the same therapeutic relationship twice. The way I work may not be the fastest, but I deeply believe that this method is the most life-changing and effective.
I purposefully maintain a small caseload to be able to focus on quality services for clients. I offer therapy sessions for individuals, couples, and older teens. The client-therapist relationship is sacred, and therapy is most effective when the client is committed and feels safe. To this end, I encourage you to use your free 15-minute consultation session to see if you feel comfortable with me before making a commitment to therapy. I will be happy to meet with you!
