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 provide therapy to adolescents and adults in individual, couples and group settings for the treatment of depression, anxiety, trauma, adjustment, anger, suicidal thoughts, self-harm thoughts or behaviors, substance abuse issues, personality disorder, stage-of-life transitions and grief & loss. Clients are assisted by gaining insight and awareness of core beliefs, thoughts, emotions and behaviors and finding skillful ways of coping with life stressors and their environment to improve their quality of life. I have specialized training in treating trauma, couples and substance abuse and utilize a compassionate empathetic approach.
I maintain a compassionate approach that is non-judgmental and non-shaming as this is necessary in the healing journey. Self-compassion and mindfulness techniques are foundational. Strength Based, Motivational, Solution Focused, Integrative and Holistic, as well as traditional CBT/DBT. For trauma: Prolonged Exposure, CPT, and EMDR techniques utilized.
Whether this is the first time that you're seeking out therapy or if you have done this before, the process can be overwhelming. You should know, though, that by being here you've taken such an important step forward in beginning to heal your pain and resolve personal struggles.
