Finding a therapist and beginning therapy are two steps that take an immense amount of courage and energy. I know this because I've been on the client-side of therapy many times and value not only the growth, but also the understanding it gives me when working with new clients. The reality of the situation is that most often you've been wondering about this for a while and/or are feeling quite in need of support.

My hope for you is to find a therapist who you feel you could become vulnerable around, with time, and I believe this is an innate-knowing, not something you can convince yourself of. I do my best to support folks by offering a complimentary consultation to potential clients so you can get an idea of what my therapeutic approach and personality are.

I strive to walk alongside people as they navigate the difficult times of life and encourage them to seek new ways of understanding their own stories. I utilize mindfulness-based approaches in all the work I do. Please reach out if you'd like to see what working with me is like; I'd be honored to get your email.

When you are in pain or confused, it's not always easy to know where to go or with whom to talk. Therapy offers you a safe and confidential space to tell your story and explore that story's effect on your life right now. With support and feedback, I offer my clients an opportunity to feel more at peace with who they are and to make new decisions about themselves. You may even feel ready to try new behaviors and change the story of your life.

I tend to be informal and interactive and am focused on your goals for therapy. The most important aspect of the therapeutic experience is developing a relationship with someone you can trust. As a result, I try to keep it simple and work with the concerns that you want to address.

I am available to meet in person or via Tele-health video as well as secure electronic registration and payment. Our office follows Covid-19 protocols that allow for social distancing, hand washing and mask wearing.

Hello, and welcome to my practice! I am excited to meet you and look forward to developing a relationship with you! It takes courage to begin therapy and I am forever impressed with my patient’s desire to grow and change. Even though the work may be difficult, you will see your self-confidence and relationships improve. I love helping people use their creativity to heal themselves. Even people who have no idea they might be innovative typically find a spark that is original to them. We will discuss what you want to receive from your relationships and how to achieve those goals. Therapy is a process and a journey, but your efforts will empower you to grow in ways you never thought possible!

One of the founding principles of my practice and my own therapeutic style is that emotion and rationality are not necessarily separate ideals, but rather that they assist each other to help a person make wise decisions. This principle can apply to as little a thing as what to eat for breakfast or as large a thing as what career to follow or who to marry or what choices to help your children make.

While therapy can be a humbling concept and often a difficult process, it also reaps great rewards. I enjoy seeing my clients make progress. As your therapist, I hope to assist you on your journey to live a happier and more peaceful life.

Most people I know don't aspire to be that average, center-of-the-bell-curve person. In different ways, we all deviate from the norm, which explains our own uniqueness. My aim as a therapist is to work with individuals, couples, triads, and families in a way that celebrates their uniqueness and "incurable deviance" from the norm. By meeting you where you are, with who you are, in a way that makes best use of your unique strengths, hopes, dreams, and quirks, we can work together as client(s) and therapist to help you address your current challenges, get lots more of what you want, develop skills, transform, and explore new choices available to you.

I am trained in a variety of approaches and integrate them in a way to best serve the individual client with therapy, counseling, and coaching services. My current fee per session is $80. My trainings and certifications include Mindfulness/Insight-based therapies, CBT, SFBT ACT, EMDR, Clinical Hypnosis, Metaphors of Movement, Provocative Changeworks, and NLP.

It takes courage to begin therapy and coaching. My experience is that once you begin, you'll experience changes immediately. I welcome clients from diverse backgrounds and if we're not a good fit I will help you find someone who is. I am a proud ally to LGBTQ folks and am kink and poly aware. I welcome adult and senior clients and have immediate openings. Due to Covid-19 most of my sessions are being done via telehealth. I am willing to discuss meeting in person on a case-by-case basis.

While my methods are grounded in evidence-based practices, my style is unique, down-to-earth and non-traditional. I'm also realistic, charismatic and compassionate. I apply humor when necessary and take great pride in challenging you to rise to your own occasion. Being able to step back and take an observational view of your life and consider a different perspective is integrated into my practice and a large part of what excites me about this work. I'll collaborate with you to get where you want to be in a way that makes the most sense to you.

I want to help you realign your head and heart in order to trust your intuition. Doing this allows you to live your life from a strength-based deep understanding of yourself, propelling you toward achieving self-actualization! You already have the characteristics, tools, and passion you need for everything you want, we may just need to make a few adjustments to rejuvenate those qualities or go even deeper to heal pain from past trauma.

Wether you're here to heal primarily or using our time to catapult you to your greatest heights, I'm looking forward to taking that journey with you.
