My intention as a therapist is to listen and respond with acceptance and empathy, providing the space for you to safely explore what is causing you stress, anxiety or sadness, or what is stopping you from feeling fulfilled in your life. My view of therapy is informed by my belief in the intrinsic strength and value of each human being, and in the ability of our brains to create new and more functional neural pathways. I know we are capable of making significant changes, especially when we have the support of being truly understood and validated.
I work collaboratively with adolescents, adults of all ages, couples (on maintaining OR ending relationships) and families to address communication, self-esteem, sexuality, relationships, aging, anxiety, depression, and trauma. I use evidence-based treatment modalities in my practice. I am also available for Skype and phone sessions.
I have experience working with rescue and law enforcement professionals, as well as other mental health providers, around issues of trauma, and in developing and maintaining healthy coping strategies. I support my clients in moving forward in their lives with renewed effectiveness, and with improved communication and emotion regulation skills.
