~ Therapy for Adolescents & Adults

       

Welcome and thank you for visiting. I am currently accepting new clients. In addition to the self-pay session rate, I also offer a sliding scale and I accept both Cigna and Aetna insurance plans.

You may be visiting my website because you're feeling worried, stuck or alone. You may be at the end of your rope and know something needs to change. I would like to help. My education, training, and experience are in working with teenagers, parents, adults, and couples who are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, grief, addictions, post traumatic stress, and other challenging issues. I invite you to call or email to set up a free 15 minute phone consultation to see if I may be a good fit for your needs. 

My approach to therapy is practical, empowering, and compassionate. I help clients clarify what they want, increase their self awareness and build healthy coping skills while we also work to get to the root of the problem so lasting change can occur. Clients begin to notice and better understand the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs associated with a problem. Once this occurs, space is opened up and clients are able to make desired changes, move forward, and live a more intentional life.

In addition to traditional talk therapy, I specialize in and am master-level certified in  Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). ART is an efficient and evidenced based intervention that helps resolve symptoms that often do not improve from talk therapy alone. In my experience, clients that choose to  incorporate ART into their treatment plan tend to find relief and peace significantly more quickly than those that choose talk therapy alone. 

My real world experience in a blended family combined with degrees in psychology and mental health counseling, certification in family and relationship therapy, and trauma-focused training allow me to offer clients a unique perspective, skill set, and understanding of the many challenging issues that face today's adolescents, adults, and couples. 

I am here to help and would be honored to work with you on your personal therapy goals. Please call, text, or email to set up a brief consultation to see if I may be a good fit for your needs.

If you are in a crisis situation, please dial 988. If there is a medical emergency, please dial 911.

"WE CAN NEVER GO BACK AND MAKSOME OF THE DETAILS PRETTY. 

ALL WE CAN DO IS MOVE FORWARD AND MAKE THE WHOLE BEAUTIFUL".

My Approach:

More than anything else,I believe that people are resilient. I also believe that you are the expert on your life, but that sometimes life can just get too overwhelming to handle alone. By being genuine, curious, culturally sensitive, and accepting, I meet my clients where they are and help them get where they want to go.  

While it can be very difficult to notice sometimes, most adolescents and young adults desire to achieve independence while still remaining close to family. Therapy may be a good option for those coping with shifting family dynamics or when an issue arises that affects familial relations. 

 

Sometimes people find the support of a therapist to be helpful during life's many transitions, especially if they experience mental health concerns or other difficulties as they become accustomed to new expectations, roles, and responsibilities. 

My approach to therapy is practical, compassionate, down to earth, and strengths-based. I work collaboratively with clients on their desired goals while simultaneously helping to rebuild connection and trust within relationships. 

 

I encourage my clients to learn more about themselves and their worldview. My therapy approach helps clients get to the root of what is causing their symptoms and affecting their functioning. I help clients see, understand, and change the many aspects that have informed and influenced their current challenges.
