Therapy is about finding balance. Whatever you are experiencing, whether you are too uncertain, too filled with sadness, too anxious, too available, too stuck in your past...we will work together to shift the dynamic. It isn't always easy to sit in front of someone and share personal things. I am here to listen, respect where you are also push gently when necessary. I enjoy being a safe space for exploration that is fostered by the therapeutic relationship. Working with you to look at things from a variety of angles, building insight and improving coping, can help to foster a more balanced approach that can make life not only easier, but enjoyable.
I have been committed to counseling people in a wide variety of circumstances for nearly 20 years and have enjoyed working with a diverse population of children, teens, adults, and couples with a range of life circumstances. I remain passionate about and genuinely interested in our psychology and its interaction with our environment, and have continued to act as a student as much as a practitioner. Aside from graduate school and clinic work, I have extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (9 month intensive course), Gestalt Couples Therapy, Intimate Partner Violence, Seeking Safety, and more.
