Welcome! You have just taken an important step towards finding help and support. As a psychotherapist in private practice, I specialize in helping adults who are struggling through difficult life situations. During sessions, we will talk about your life and the things that are bothering you. You will become aware of how you are psychologically organized, and of the stories that you tell yourself about yourself and the world around you. All of this can be changed if you want it to be.
As your therapist, I can guarantee that anything you say in our sessions is confidential. This cannot be guaranteed with a friend. Also, my education and experience brings a knowledge base that friends do not have. I do not have an agenda for you, and friends often do. Friends and family often want you to do something that (subconsciously) benefits them, but may not be best for you.
I set aside judgment, and become curious about your life. My approach is down-to-earth and practical. I do not just listen to problems. I listen to people in their entirety. It is a joy to be part of the process of discovery, and finding happiness and solutions. I believe that people are resilient, and that there is something for anyone who is truly looking.
In addition to traditional talk therapy, I am trained in EMDR. Please look at my FAQ’s page to learn more about how EMDR might be helpful to you.
If you are not sure exactly what you need, or you want to talk more about how we might work together, I offer all new clients a FREE 20 minute consultation, either in person, or by phone. Whatever you are going through, you do not have to go through it alone. I would like to help.
