“Being able to support clients as they work through challenges in their lives, develop a more authentic sense of self and seeing the growth they experience as a result is extremely gratifying and a true honor.”

I work with children, families and adults, particularly young professionals and parents. I have experience working with clients focusing on a wide range of issues including, but not limited to:

  • Anxiety

  • Career Counseling

  • Depression

  • Family Conflict

  • Grief

  • Relationship Issues

  • Stress

  • Trauma

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

If you’re not feeling “yourself” and you’re having difficulty coping, therapy can be a place to go to unpack what’s going on and improve your wellbeing. You are in the driver’s seat the entire time, and I’m here to support you in your journey.

I typically start by speaking to someone who is interested in beginning therapy on the phone for a free 15 minute consultation to see if I would be a good fit for their needs. If so, I provide some basic paperwork to fill out so I can learn a little more about your medical and mental health background. Our first session together may be an hour so we can spend some time getting to know each other, going over that paperwork, and discussing your goals for therapy. From there, I typically see clients weekly (sometimes every other week) for 45 minute sessions.
