Anxiety, Relationship Issues, and Stress

Great to meet you!

Accepting: Aetna, Oxford, United Health Care only. With over 15 years of experience in my field, my approach is centered around empowerment, compassion and understanding. I am truly passionate about helping others navigate personal struggles with relationships, life transitions, and anxiety because often at the core of feeling better is simply wanting to feel more at ease and come up for air. Developing healthy stress management and self-care practices is also a central to reaching that goal.

A bit about my approach to therapy

My therapeutic approach is eclectic and tailored to the needs of the individual client, but inspired by ideals from research based techniques like CBT, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. As part of my practice, I also integrate and encourage increased awareness of the mind-body connection and your physiological response to stress or trauma as part of healing and healthy self care.

What you can expect from our first session

I have always been most inspired to encourage people to be brave enough to share their truths and vulnerable enough to allow themselves to be truly seen. At the center of any successful transformation in coaching, consultation or therapy is a strong foundation built on trust, vulnerability, full disclosure and no judgment. As a true thought-partner, I am willing to walk the path to feeling better beside you with the goal of helping you feel empowered to begin the process of creating change.
