I believe people come to therapy feeling alone, demoralized, and discouraged. Many people avoid seeking professional help because of fear of the unknown, the idea that “something must be wrong with me,” a bad previous experience, or privacy concerns. It is my highest priority to provide you with a safe, supportive, and confidential environment.
I have 19 years of clinical experience and use research-based methods that have been shown to be effective. I want to help you share your story, feel understood, and gain the knowledge and tools to address your issues. I believe that therapy is collaborative, respectful, and should make common sense.
When you visit
At the first meeting, you will fill out some paperwork and we will meet for about an hour. I will ask you to tell me your main reasons for seeking treatment. We will also explore things in your past and current life that may be influencing you. I want to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
