People often don’t believe in therapy because they don’t believe they can change. Some people imagine their “ideal” self and feel that they are too far behind or too unstable to become that person. I do this work because I believe in people and I know they can change. My purpose as a therapist is to meet you wherever you are in your journey and create a safe, empowering space where we can work together as a team to move you closer toward your personal goals. This may mean working through past trauma, finding ways to get out of a toxic situation, or perhaps it just means helping you get out of your own way.
I specialize in young and mature adults who are often viewed as "complicated" or "too much to handle" by others in their lives. I have extensive experience with individuals suffering from anxiety/depression and low self-esteem; as well as people in domestic violence relationships, survivors of sexual abuse/trafficking, and a variety of mental illnesses.
My approach is informal, supportive, and I love to laugh! I tell new clients that if you are feeling skeptical about therapy, to have 3 sessions with me before making a decision either way. You at least owe it to yourself to try something different. I provide a free 20-minute phone consultation. Please don't hesitate to reach out and take a first step toward becoming a better version of yourself.
