Having worked as a psychotherapist for over 12 years, I have come to learn and witness what techniques and tools tend have the most profound impact in the therapeutic context and can foster wellbeing in between sessions and thereafter.  While basic talk therapy, being heard, exploring past issues, and processing thoughts and feelings can all be very helpful, I find folks truly need tangible tools to work with during a session and especially between sessions, as in between session is where the real work begins! These tools and approaches I utilize make up a holistic approach because life and being a human is a multifaceted experience. Such tools can include: 

I provide therapy for a variety of issues, most commonly anxiety and depression. I also work with various other concerns, including coping with mood dysregulation, grief/bereavement, major life transitions, school adjustment concerns, learning struggles/ADHD, work/life balance, stress/burnout, health issues, relationship issues, and couple's counseling. I also provide performance-based coaching for those experiencing less emotional distress and desire to set and achieve positive goals. Currently, I am only working with adults (18 and up.) Typically, a first session involves getting acquainted, assessing the matter at hand, reviewing some of your history, and seeing how we can work best together. I place a high value on the therapeutic relationship/alliance, in which trust, openness, and understanding are paramount.

  • Contact the office to set up your initial appointment. I offer a complimentary 15-minute consultation to get acquainted, discuss what you are specifically seeking from therapy, and how I can best help you.

  • Upon your confirmation of an appointment, you will receive "intake paperwork" via email to complete and bring to your session.   

  • Upon our first visit, we will get acquainted, discuss your background,  and go over informed consent,  policies/procedures, and confidentiality.  We will then determine your goals for therapy and whether we are a good fit. We will also discuss the duration and frequency of our time together as it pertains to achieving your therapeutic goals.  We will also discuss what successful "termination of therapy" will look like for you and what this process will entail as far as future goals and resources. ​
