"The beginning is the
part of the work" -Plato
I am so glad that you are here. I understand that the search for the right therapist can be an overwhelming and involved task as there are many things to consider. Multiple scientific studies suggest that the relationship built between the therapist and the client are the single most important factor for therapy to be effective.
I invite you to take your time and consider what is important to you as you consider choosing me as your therapist.
As my client you will find that I value you as a unique person and that you will feel genuinely cared for and heard. It’s essential to me that you experience me as warm and engaged. I want you to feel safe and comfortable as you explore concerns that you identify are most important to you.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Child Mental Health Specialist. I have over 20 years of clinical experience and advanced training in the areas of trauma, attachment, depression/anxiety, marriage/family, women's related issues, child psychology, and personality disorders. I particularly enjoy working with women and couples.
Therapy is certainly not a quick fix and at times can be very difficult. Together, we will consider your needs and I will not offer you a one size fits all approach. I will provide feedback that is relevant and useful to you from a place of compassion. The responses that I provide come from advanced forms of therapy training in evidenced based practices including EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), TFCBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy), Attachment Therapy and Attachment science.
