Do you ever get caught off guard by a feeling that seems to come out of the blue? In some cases, you can "power through it" and not let it impact you too much, but other times it seems to paralyze you. In these times of paralysis, a little voice shows up and says "You shouldn't be feeling that way" or some version of "toughen up". While these ideas seem good in theory, they just don't take into account these feelings that are present. Emotions can and do at times impact our ability to make decisions with confidence. While this is a natural human experience, it is something that we can change and become more effective at. This is where I come in. I am here to join you in your corner. You have already started your journey towards healing simply by finding my profile and considering making a change in your life. While talking about feelings isn't always the most enjoyable thing to do, it can be a very rewarding and life changing process. Please consider taking this next step of your journey with me. We can create a plan centered around your needs and if we learn that the current plan isn't working, we will find alternative solutions.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our first session, we will get to know each other and will determine if we are a good fit to work with each other. You will get a sense of my personality and approach as well as determine if it may align with what your therapeutic needs are. I will lay out what I believe the next steps will look like as well as answer any questions you have about the process.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My greatest strength as a therapist is my calm and welcoming demeanor. I have a way of making therapy very conversational and relational. Therapy can be very "clinical" and full of big words and ideas that many clients are not interested in. My goal is to translate my education and clinical expertise into a conversational tone that allows you to discover your opportunities for healing in a safe and non-judgemental space.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I believe that the way we think is instrumental to our lived experience and life satisfaction. With my extensive training and experience, I have learned how to employ CBT strategies in a way that is approachable and simple to adopt.
