Therapy is a process, it's a journey. We are always learning, growing, and changing. That learning, growing, changing process doesn't happen overnight. There is no quick fix. Growth can be difficult but it's possible for everyone if you are willing to put in the work. Your therapist isn't some magic guru who can give you all the answers. A good therapist gives you tools, but you have to make the choice to utilize those tools. It's like having a GPS navigator-your therapist can show you all the different paths you can take. But at the end of the day you are in the driver's seat and you are the one who determines which direction you go in, which path you take.
I believe accessibility is the biggest barrier for people seeking care. The act of looking for a therapist can be daunting-finding someone with availability that works for you, an affordable fee, someone who specializes in the issues you are facing AND someone who is personality wise a good fit for you-it's hard work. Accessible platforms, like Choosing Therapy, that take some of that work out can make the process a little easier. People don't always know where to look-you can contact your insurance company to find who is covered but there's not always the information needed to find someone who is a good fit (and also has availability for new clients)

During my time in graduate school I completed internships at a high school working with adolescents through a violence prevention program and at Bellevue hospital on the Forensic unit working with incarcerated people experiencing persistent mental illness. I then started my work as an executive functioning coach with Organizational Tutors, working with students with ADD/ADHD, helping them organize internally and externally in order to access their best selves. Through that work, I began working at that organization's sister company, Dwellness in-home psychological services. At Dwellness, I work with children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples who are experiencing a variety of issues (from ADD/ADHD symptoms, to depression and anxiety, to relationship issues and communication issues to career/life changes). My specialties include anxiety, add/adhd, relationship issues, self-esteem, trauma related issues, parent coaching, and family conflict.
