Welcome. If you are reading this, something about your life likely does not feel right – either with a relationship, or with your experience of yourself, or with the direction you see yourself heading. If you are reading this, it hopefully also means that some part of you believes change is possible.

My approach to therapy is informed by your reasons for contacting me, my training as a psychologist, as well as by our working relationship.

In the first few sessions, we will go over what you would like to gain from therapy, and we will complete an intake assessment. I will also go over some of the parameters for therapy, including information about confidentiality, session frequency and duration, fees, insurance, and cancellations. At the end of these sessions, I will give you my impressions of what our work might entail, and we can discuss if my training and experience match your treatment needs. If we decide to start psychotherapy, we will discuss treatment goals and schedule our first therapy appointment.

It can be frustrating to have the same fight over and over again. After saying the same thing a million times, it can feel like your partner just isn't listening to you. I love helping couples to really "hear" each other and get to the root of the issue rather than just scratching at the surface. My aim is to help couples to fight for the same thing rather than fight against each other. Are you ready to release the baggage that is keeping you stuck? If so, I would love to help you unpack.

Your sense of self is derived from your day to day events, history, culture, education, and your parents. This is done through the activation of your biological sensory system. Once data is taken in through your senses and processed by your mind, your thoughts produce an array of emotions which eventuate your experience and ultimately produce your truth about life. If you are not aware of your belief system, your thoughts and emotions will wear you down like an app depleting the battery life of your smartphone when gone unchecked.

Hence, with a background in systems theory, I discovered the power to change the patterns of our story line. The gift of presence and the freedom to choose is what I desire to give to you. I do this by using your feelings as an important process towards self-awareness because feelings become the clue to your thoughts, behaviors, and belief systems.

I do not instruct you with an alternate interpretation of feelings; rather, I ask process questions to increase your higher thinking skills. For instance, I will ask you how you observe your pain rather than how you feel or think about your pain. My goal is always the same regardless of symptom, religion, culture or gender.

As a systems therapist this is liberating because it allows me to meet you where you are at. I listen, ask process questions, validate your experience, and provide compassionate care so you can pass the barriers that hold you back from trusting yourself.

Finding the right therapist is like dating- it’s all about the connection! A strong therapeutic alliance fosters confidence in your therapist, which allows you to trust the process of therapy and how it can help you on your journey of self-exploration and healing. I believe in the importance of having the right fit; if I am not the one for you, I will gladly help you find someone who help you better. I want you to thrive and be the awesome person (or couple) that you are!

People enter therapy for a number of reasons; you don’t have to be “broken” or have a diagnosis to benefit from therapy. In fact, having a good therapist in your corner can be a factor in life satisfaction because you have an objective professional who is not in your life and will always be on your side to improve the things that are important to you. I hope you don’t think that your reasons for seeking therapy are small or minor; if it is important to you, then it is important to me. We are always in the process of becoming. We are on this journey together.
