My goal is to provide you with a safe, supportive environment via telehealth video or phone sessions, where you can explore your emotional needs & overcome barriers that keep you from being the person you wish you were. I take an open-minded approach to the well-being of my clients by considering factors such as work life, family traditions, cultural beliefs, spirituality, & sexual identity of the individuals I serve. I have a down-to-earth approach, and I will work to help make therapy comfortable & encouraging for you, instilling hope in your life every session. I offer individual counseling sessions for adults only. I do not offer couples counseling.
Be ready to commit to your progress! Although I'll be here to support you, guide you, & encourage you in a non-judgmental way during every step of your journey; I will never work harder than you do. You are the true catalyst for change in your own life. We're not able to make promises in therapy, but I can assure you that the benefit you receive from therapy will match the amount of time, effort, & energy you put into the process. If you're seeking a therapist to make miracles happen *for* you, instead of *with* you, I am not the right therapist for you.
One of my main goals as a therapist is to help break the stigma of who can possibly benefit from counseling. In my practice, I often hear first time counseling clients state that they thought therapy was only for people who are "crazy." People attend counseling for many reasons: stress, relationship problems, career issues, grief, parenting guidance, substance abuse / dependence, as well as mental health concerns such as various levels of anxiety & depression. It's my belief that everyone can benefit from some counseling!
Examples of some of the problem areas I have helped people with include:
