Message to clients

Feeling at ease with your therapist is so important. I want to help you be more fully yourself. We all have parts of ourselves that we tend to keep hidden from others. I invite you to bring all those parts of yourself to therapy. You don't have to have the answers. You don't have to put yourself together to come to therapy. Come, bring the messy pieces, and we will figure it out together.

Often my clients come to therapy feeling stuck. Sometimes clients' emotions are stuck in a repeating cycle and they can't break free. Sometimes the demands of life have become too much and it doesn't seem like there is another way.

I am a therapist because I love the moment when a client becomes unstuck. Sometimes it's a slow shift. Sometimes it's a sudden burst of insight. Fundamentally, I want to help you get unstuck.

I hope you will feel comfortable with me like you do with a close friend. If you are comfortable and can be fully present in therapy, I can support you in finding a new way forward. You can feel calm and confident. I would be honored to help you get there.

Client testimonials

"When I reached out to Dr. Blattner concerning questions and therapy for my daughter who was diagnosed with postpartum psychosis, she promptly responded to me and in my opinion went above and beyond. Although she was unable to give therapy to my daughter because of distance, she provided me with other recommendations and resources as well as calling me on the phone to tell me more about this condition and the best way to proceed. I was touched by her genuine concern and professionalism in this situation. I would highly recommend Dr. Blattner as she is knowledgeable, professional and compassionate."
