Professional statement

Therapy is not one size fits all. Therapy should be tailored to your needs and what you need from therapy may change as you change. If you have an idea of therapy that you don’t like, you’ve had a bad experience, or you know exactly what you want, these are things I hope you’ll tell me so that I can provide you with the best experience possible.

I have experience working on interdisciplinary teams to provide therapy and have seen the benefits of having multiple sources of input. I believe that the more collaboration there is, the better. If there is anyone you feel should be involved in your treatment, such as your primary care physician or psychiatrist, I am excited to work as a team to provide the best care possible.


Message to clients

In our first session I’ll ask you questions to learn about why you’re seeking therapy and what your goals for therapy are. There is no pressure to feel like you should have your goals clearly identified before we meet! This is a process we’ll work through together and I see it as my job to help you set achievable goals. Then I’ll make some suggestions about ways we can work on those goals. We’ll continue to assess and modify your goals throughout treatment so that we both have a clear idea of what we’re working towards and so you’re able to see your progress and celebrate your successes.
