You made it! Maybe you have been looking for a long time, or maybe you just found us today. Either way, we’re so glad you’re here. Finding a therapist can be daunting. I get it. So, I’d like to make it easier for you. Whether you have been in therapy before or this is your first time, I know the anxiety that meeting a new therapist can be. And, my office provides a peaceful environment with comfortable seating and photographs of trees on the walls.
A healthy tree roots into the ground. It also reaches upwards and outwards to get what it needs to continue growing. You might wonder, what do trees really have to do with starting therapy? Well, nothing directly. But learning new ways to grow and get what you need can help a whole lot. And sometimes we need some help figuring out what we need AND how to get it.
That’s where I come in.
Helping you reconnect with yourself & the world around you.
I work with clients who are dealing with all kinds of challenges like anxiety, OCD, relationships, and adjusting to living with chronic illness or chronic pain. I also have expertise in working with LGBTQ folks and allies of these communities.
I believe in therapy. I’ve seen it work. I utilize evidence-based treatments like Exposure Response Prevention for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. But – more importantly – I know that you have to feel comfortable with your therapist. The connection you feel with your therapist is the most solid path to feeling better.
You don’t have to do this alone! You and I will create a plan to help you get closer to where you want to be.
If you want to get more grounded and reach out for the life you’ve always wanted, I am ready when you are!
