Hi there! Let's sit and chat... Are you looking for a safe space to explore and organize your thoughts and feelings? Many people see therapy as a one-sided conversation, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience one another as real people. I can assure you our sessions will be as real as it gets! I want to help you achieve whatever solutions and life changes you are looking for. We'll work on building trust, a sense of safety, open communication, and humor to identify how we can improve on your already existing coping skills, supports, and knowledge. Although this process may be challenging, we will work to enjoy the process as much as possible, so you can experience yourself, your relationships, and your life in new ways. Simply put, I don't think therapy has to be a painful thing for you. Starting this step can be hard and I would love the opportunity to work with you on this journey.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
We'll start by discussing where you're at in your life. Where do you live, how do you spend your days? We'll talk about what brings you joy, as well as what doesn't. Where are you stuck? We're going to dissect some of your thoughts, feelings, and patterns to understand why they're there. This will make it easier to find out where the change needs to happen, and how we can get it started.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I have extensive training in Emotionally Focused Therapy and I also use a group of therapeutic systems approaches, such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy. I also enjoy using humor and active listening to best understand where you are and what you would like to work on.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
During the 9+ years as a therapist, I have enjoyed helping individuals, couples, and families find healing and understanding in their worlds. Changing the way we view ourselves and the world around us can be a difficult journey, and I am committed to helping you every step of the way. For Private Pay Clients: Individual Sessions: $115/hour Couple/Family Sessions: $140/hour **While I am in network with various insurances, all couples and families are seen via private pay. This allows us to focus on the relationships in the room, rather than the diagnosis of an individual.
