In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

The biggest way my personality influences my approach to therapy is through a drive to help others realize their potential. I believe you have the answers within you and my job is to help bring them to the surface. My flexible approach to sessions will allow you to explore a framework for working through your goals, step by step.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

We will begin with the end in mind by you defining what success looks like. If you aren't sure right off the bat, there is no pressure as we will continue to revisit what success means to you. Throughout our time together, we will reflect on your progress regularly by revisiting your goals. Progress is not a linear process, and set backs are part of everyday life. Engaging in therapy and doing the work will be essential to your success. I am here to help you make the changes you wish to see more digestible!

What does a first session with you look like?

My approach to the first session is to meet you where you are, and to seek to understand what you are currently experiencing, how this impacts your daily life, and help you prioritize where to begin. Oftentimes there are several areas of concern and my hope is to decrease the overwhelming feelings you may be experiencing to make change more manageable.

Work History

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Life Coach with over 20 years experience working with people in a variety of roles, with all ages and across the life span. My career began with an early intervention program for at risk youth and first time criminal offenders, and then transitioned to working with older adults and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities. Throughout the past few years, I have been providing coaching for personal and professional growth. I believe each life stage comes with unique challenges and opportunities. I use a strengths-based lens and specialize in helping people cope with and thrive through life changes and transitions, ranging from issues with grief and loss, career difficulties, challenges women experience (teen through adulthood), depression and anxiety, and much more. My therapeutic approach is specifically tailored to your needs and may involve a combination of Motivational Interviewing, CBT, and Solution Focused Therapy, as well as tapping into mindfulness that will serve as a grounding force for our work together. We will focus on exploring how your past informs your present, and how you perceive your outer and inner world.
