About My Clients

Are you overwhelmed by negative or unhelpful thoughts and feelings? Is your mind racing and you can’t make it stop? Would it be nice to fall asleep at night with a clear mind? Do you experience trichotillomania or skin-picking? Insomnia? I can help. Change isn’t easy but it’s easier when you have someone to listen without judgement, notice your progress, and cheer you on in a safe, healing, and secular space. There is a more calm and higher functioning you on the other side of this.

My Background and Approach

I understand and appreciate that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. Sometimes you want short-term help to navigate and cope with a particularly challenging or stressful life experience. Sometimes you prefer longer-term therapy that builds on the learning and self-discovery. Together, we can develop a plan that meets your needs. I will work to understand how you are uniquely you, because I understand that all mental health issues don't fit the textbook description. I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to help you identify and acknowledge disruptive or debilitating thoughts and behaviors that are barriers to you achieving your full potential. I integrate other approaches that 'play well with' CBT to help with stumbling blocks and provide more insight on your problem. I also integrate mindfulness into my practice and am happy to introduce you to its benefits as well. Online scheduling available for established clients.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that you have got this and that you matter... even when you don't believe it. We will get through this, whatever this is, together.
