Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I am a marriage and family therapist and I have been in practice for 8 years. I worked for several years in community mental health with adolescents and their families. I stepped away for a few years to raise my children and three years ago I got into telehealth. I think it's convenient for all parties involved! Based on our current societal climate, I deal frequently with anxiety and depression as they're very prevalent. I have quite a few tips and tricks to help you out!
My approach is very rationally based; I use CBT which focuses on working through our issues in a very rational and concrete plane. I have been described as being very warm but I do like to add humor in when appropriate because I think it helps alleviate the mental weight that we carry with us. I want you to feel comfortable almost as if you're talking to an old friend and not a stiff professional. I hope when you leave a session with me, you have felt heard and understood. I want you to walk away with tools you can use in your everyday life to alleviate the burdens you carry. But most of all, I want you to walk away feeling lighter and stronger knowing that it will get better.
