    My Approach to Helping

    Sometimes life feels overwhelming, like it’s too much to handle on your own. Maybe a person or relationship you really counted on let you down. Maybe you feel anxious about what the future holds. Maybe you thought you put your past behind you, but it keeps coming back in flashbacks or nightmares. Maybe you lost someone very dear to you and don’t know where to go from here. These things can cause stress, anxiety, depression, and more.

    The good news is it’s okay to ask for help. I’m here to help you deal with what’s bothering you. When you work with me you will find someone who listens, and is genuinely interested in what you have to say. Together, we can make a plan to get you back on track. That could include talk therapy, processing thoughts and feelings, considering a different point of view, letting go of what is holding you back, admitting fears and worries, and more. I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), which is used to process traumatic memories so that they no longer have power over you.

    More Info About My Practice

    It’s very important to me to return client calls, texts, and emails. I have heard too many stories from my own clients of calls that went unanswered and un-returned. This can cause a person to feel ignored and disrespected at the very time you need someone to help you. If you contact me and I am unable to take your call at that moment, please leave me a message. You can expect me to get back to you as soon as possible, often within a few hours.

    Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

    The most important thing to consider when choosing a therapist is the relationship. When you meet your therapist for the first time, assess how you feel. Do you feel safe and comfortable? Does it seem like you are connecting with the therapist, that the therapist understands your point of view? If not, it may be hard for you to talk about the issues you are having, which means it will be difficult to get much accomplished in therapy.

    A good therapist wants the best for you and wants you to have the best therapy experience possible. I am not offended if a client doesn’t feel like we are a good fit, and often, if the client feels this way, the therapist does, too. That doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with either one of us. It just means there is someone else who can help this client better than I can. And that’s okay. My goal is for you to get the help you need from the person who is the best fit for you. If it’s me, great. If not, I don’t take it personally. I’ll do what I can to help you find a good match.

    My Approach to Helping I truly believe that healing comes from exploring and working through what “comes up” in your mental, physical, energetic, and spiritual bodies.
