You wouldn’t be here if you weren’t ready to make a change in your life. What courage and strength of spirit it takes to look at yourself and your surroundings and decide that things could be better! Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the hats you wear every day - parent, friend, professional, partner, caregiver, etc. Perhaps you are wondering where YOU are in all of this. Making time and space for reflection with a counselor is a great place to start rediscovering who you are and what makes your heart sing! Maybe some of your current difficulties are being fueled by the past. I often say, “There’s the things that happened to us, and then there’s the stories we tell ourselves about those things.” These stories – “I’m not good enough; I am powerless; there’s something wrong with me; I’m unlovable” – can create problems in the present with our moods, emotions, and relationships.
I Can Help
I have been a practicing therapist since 2010 and have worked with clients in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I love working with clients who are ready for change and open to new ideas. I use a variety of approaches in my work, including cognitive therapies and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), while always remaining client-centered. I meet you where you are and join with you on your journey – for a short while or a long time. Together, we can help you find balance, improve well-being, and create the life you want to live.
You can learn more about EMDR at www.emdr.com and www.emdria.com.
What I Offer
I do not currently accept insurance. Not involving insurance gives us more freedom to design our work together in a way that fits us both. My initial consultation appointment is a deep dive into your life and the circumstances that bring you into my office. In this 90-minute session, we will get into the good, the bad, and the ugly! You will also begin to get a feel for me and how I work with clients. At the end of the session, we will reflect and decide together about next steps - whether that is counseling with me or recommendations for other helpful services. I currently see clients on Fridays and look forward to meeting you!
