My Background and Approach
I believe that creating a bond between therapist and client is important. You need to have an environment where trust and comfort can be facilitated. And you need to feel supported so that you can truly begin the healing process. My office is a safe space where you can speak about whatever troubles are facing you, without fear of judgment. I believe that if you reach out for help, you deserve to receive my full attention. Whatever concerns you express will be treated with the dignity and compassion you deserve. In my time working as a therapist, I have discovered that there is no one type of therapy that every individual will respond to. That is why I have compiled a wide variety of modalities to help address whatever issues you may face. These include: Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Compassion Focused, Emotionally Focused, Mindfulness-Based (MBCT), Person-Centered, Positive Psychology, Reality Therapy, Solution Focused Brief (SFBT), Strength-Based, Eclectic.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am a caring therapist with the mission to meet you at your level. It is very important to me that you feel completely comfortable opening up and that we connect, as that is important in the therapeutic process. I use a very honest and direct approach which many of my clients find refreshing. It is not uncommon for us to share a laugh and joke, especially when I point out the obvious elephant in the room. It is because of my desire to help people with familiar struggles that I started my private practice. I have found that it is difficult to really address these issues with a large number of clients. It is hard to give the kind of quality care and attention that you deserve when I am stretched too thin. Therefore, I try to limit the amount of clients I accept. This way, I know I am providing the type of care that you really need to help you heal. I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation.
About My Clients
I specialize working with highly sensitive individuals, who often suffer from depression and anxiety. My goal is to lead clients to a happy and fulfilled life. I also assist people who are going through life transitions and maybe need some guidance along the way. As a career coach, I also assist working professionals in high pressure occupations who are at risk of burn-out, to find equilibrium with their life and work responsibilities, and to better manage different aspects of their lives.
