I am a mental health therapist committed to helping clients discover psychological roots of their struggles, understand the influence of the past on present behaviors, and change ineffective thoughts, coping mechanisms, or behaviors.

My clients can expect to use self-examination and self-reflection, while collaborating with me to alleviate their most bothersome symptoms and lead healthier, fulfilling lives. I believe in assisting clients to come to their own conclusions and solutions, because they are the experts on their own lives and the ones who will ultimately take back control of their life and reach their goals. My therapeutic approach in sessions involves problem-solving, providing resources, using humor, and relying on the therapist-client relationship.
Research shows that online therapy can be just as effective as in-person therapy for various mental health conditions. Here are just some of the benefits both my clients and I have found using online therapy:
• Provides access to mental health treatment to people in rural or remote areas
• Cuts out driving time
• Delivers accessibility to individuals who are disabled or housebound
• Offers more affordable treatment options
• Makes it easier to overcome the stigma historically attached to mental health issues
• Eliminates the worry about finding childcare or adult/elder care in order to attend sessions
By attending therapy sessions online in the comfort of your own home – office, car, or wherever private location you may be – you can often schedule your therapy sessions for times that are the most convenient for you. Online therapists also tend to have more appointment availability and flexibility. I am dedicated to supporting my clients and typically respond to crises or even non-emergency matters very quickly.
