What is your style/approach to therapy?

My style of therapy is very solution-focused and reality based, meaning, I help people find their best self. I assist clients in identifying and resolving any potential issues impacting their quality of life. As a person and as a therapist, I am genuine and direct while being accepting and understanding.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

I would want any hesitant person to know that therapy is an opportunity to grow and it is only useful if you want to do the work. This is about you choosing a path with me there shinning a light in the right direction. I am there to help and you have to be the one walking.

What does a first session with you look like?

The first session is all about getting to know you and what brought you in for therapy. I conduct a brief mental health evaluation collecting significant background information. Then I dive into your current concerns and what you’d like to see improve. By the end of this initial meeting, you should have a sense of relief that you’ve taken a first step.

Work History

I provide client-focused therapy where I believe you know yourself better than anyone, and sometimes we can find ourselves needing just a little bit of help. I have been working with adults on basic emotional skills such as stress and anger management to more complex issues like building self-esteem, growing beyond trauma, and processing grief. I assist couples grow closer and improve their relationship by improving communication and mediating issues. I enjoy helping clients’ correct common thinking errors such as labeling, catastrophizing, and mind reading. I hope all of my clients leave therapy with increased well-being and an improved outlook on life. In addition to ongoing therapy, I also provide psychological evaluations involving psychometric testing ($250-$300) to include ADHD screening in adults ($300-$500).
