Message to clients

A primary benefit of therapy is to hear another’s perspective; someone who can offer observations and guide you in recognizing the many choices you have.

I know therapy is helping someone when they have a sense of agency in their life – when they’re able to see choices, make decisions, and move toward important goals, even when internal and external challenges arise.

My style is kind and straightforward. Regardless of your diagnosis, my aim is to get to know you as a person – to understand what you love, and what you want to be about in this world. And if you don’t know – helping you discover what that might be. To me, one of the saddest things about mental illness is that it tends to pull people away from who and what they care about. An essential part of treatment then, is helping you to re-connect to these things, even when painful thoughts, emotions, or memories show up.
