About My Clients

Clients should feel heard and get feedback on what they bring to therapy. Sessions are interactive, conversational and educational. How the process goes, is entirely up to you! Client (you) and clinician (me) develop goals for the therapeutic process that are realistic and attainable, and will lead to you feeling better than when you started. I work with clients struggling with anxiety, relationships, and depression who are ready and committed to helping themselves become their BEST self.

My Background and Approach

I am trained in Structural Family Therapy, which means I work from a lens of viewing people and their problems as systemic and inter-relational. It also means that I don't see problems as something internal or flawed within, but rather existing between you and the world around you. I see problems arising when people move between one stage of life and the next, and when the old ways of doing things don't seem to work the same way anymore. For those of you interested in what kinds of therapy I am trained in, you can look to Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Trauma. I also have training and certifications in utilizing nutrition and holistic approaches to treating mental health.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe anyone can change if they truly believe that they can. In therapy, we will work to examine your core values and beliefs and see how they are influencing the ways in which you view yourself and where you fit into the world. Through my work I see a world where people are open minded, curious and dedicated to creating healthy relationships. I am open to all people and all lifestyles. I believe in free will.
