Professional statement

More than anything, you’re probably wondering what I’m like in the room, as a therapist.

In sessions, I’m a real person.

I have experience, opinions, and resources, and I’m happy to share those with you in a back and forth, dynamic conversation.

I’m here to foster your creativity, overcome fears and help you think outside the box.

So you can make those minor adjustments, which make the biggest impact.

Because chances are, you aren’t really as far from your goals as you might think you are.

As a profession, I fell in love with the therapeutic process, because there’s nothing more beautiful than a human becoming something they want to become.

And I love creatively helping people have a fresh, new life.

I’m SO driven by the beauty—in people’s stories, experiences, chaos, depth, and drama.

And I’m passionate about artfully helping people create balance, symmetry, and proportion (in whatever ways they choose).


Message to clients

What's really essential is for you to feel comfortable with your therapist as well as feel like you are making progress. Our first session together will always be an hour. The first part of the session is a thorough assessment of your history and the primary issue. The second half of the session consists of us starting to get to know each other as well as explore some therapeutic tools that relate to your current issue. We may use cognitive behavioral therapy to sort through a pressing issue or mindfulness/body oriented tools to briefly relieve anxiety. Most people leave this session with homework and next steps for our next session together.

I encourage you have a journal to take notes and mark progress.

Sessions are generally 45 minutes and can consist of anything form trauma processing to general stress management. Also because I work with many busy executives, family business owners and entrepreneurs, we may use part of our sessions for actual business coaching and strategy.

Please reach out if you have specific questions. I look forward to speaking with you!
