Background

Over the years, I have really noticed how many misconceptions there are surrounding what therapy ‘should look like.’ Some stereotypically stuffy person with a clipboard asking “how does that make you feel” over and over. Considering how diverse and versatile humanity is, doesn’t it make more sense that therapy should look different for each person? Psychotherapy is not about a professional telling you what to do. Simply put, it is a safe space where you can reflect on your experiences, unpack your own emotions, and learn more about where you are at and where you want to be.

As a therapist, I offer a sounding board for you to engage with. Whether the techniques include discussion, coping mechanisms, worksheets, or artistic expression, I promise to be present at each session. We will work collaboratively to discover what you feel would benefit you most during your time in therapy. I have many years of professional and personal experience with acknowledging and processing trauma, discovering the underlying causes of depression, and coping with the daily anxiety that comes with being human.   

Life is hard and it feels like each new day comes with its own unique set of challenges. Despite external forces which we often have little control over, it is important to remember that we do have accountability over ourselves. Our thoughts, actions, emotions, and behaviors. Change is difficult and does not happen overnight, but it is feasible. If you are willing to put in the time, I am willing to offer my support in any way that I can.
