Welcome! My approach to therapy begins with you – your goals, hopes, and dreams for the future. However, you may be at a place in your life where those hopes seem distant, maybe even impossible to reach. I believe our partnership could bring those goals into clearer focus and into a day-to-day reality. My approach brings a combination of skill building and insight orientated approaches to regain a sense of agency in life. Collaboration is extremely important to me – we are partners working towards your goals, those things you want to be different.
My many years of work with adolescents, adults, and families has begun to give me insight and experience into the complexities that help along your journey, but I am a partner and a guide. I am trained in EMDR and use it in a variety of ways. I believe good therapy can provide new ways of thinking, new ways of relating to others, and skills to help manage difficult emotions. In this work with individuals, couples, and families we strive to customize the approach to each client’s unique situation, needs, and inherent strengths. The answers are inside you and together we find them.
I believe a strong working relationship is essential to success in therapy, which is why I place a premium on getting to know clients in all aspects of who they are, not just the part that has brought them to therapy. I prioritize transparency in my practice by providing information about theory and techniques being used. Ultimately, my goal is to help each client reach their goals, become their own therapists, and work myself out of a job.
