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, identifying destructive patterns, or perhaps it just means helping you reframe your thinking about a current life change.
I specialize in young and mature women who are often viewed as "complicated" by others in their lives. I have extensive experience with individuals suffering from anxiety/depression and low self-confidence; as well as survivors of trauma and a variety of mental illnesses. I also offer clinical supervision to clinicians seeking independent licensure!
My approach is informal, supportive, and I love to laugh! If you are feeling skeptical about therapy, try to have 3 sessions before making a decision either way. If you want your life to be different, you at least owe it to yourself to try something different. I provide a free 15-minute phone consultation. Please don't hesitate to reach out and take a first step toward becoming a better version of yourself.
