What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including ADHD, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Divorce / Breakup, Eating Disorder, Grief / Loss, LGBTQIA+, OCD / Obsessive-Compulsive, Postpartum / Pregnancy, Relationships, Sex Therapy, Trauma / PTSD and Women’s Issues.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

As a clinician with over 20 years of professional expertise in working with individuals, teens, families and couples, my person-centered approach will help you navigate tough problems and unexpected life transitions.
