Our first session will be an opportunity to get to know one another. I truly believe that trust is a key component to therapy and I want you to have a clear understanding of who I am and what we will be working on together when you walk away from your first session.
I tend to have a very laid back and easy going approach. I also like to use humor and playfulness when appropriate. I may share information about myself that I feel comfortable sharing in order to help normalize your experience and create a meaningful connection.
There is an idea in society that "we don't need therapy" or "it isn't that bad" however therapy can be exploratory and interesting. It is a way to connect to yourself or others in a meaningful and thoughtful way. It might even be enjoyable!

After graduating from my master's program, I started out by working at an inpatient psychiatric unit outside of Chicago. From there, I worked in a community mental health center and in a private practice setting for 7 years each. When I moved from Chicago to Georgia, I began working at a University counseling center. Therefore I have had the opportunity to work with individual from diverse backgrounds with different presenting concerns and issues.
