About My Clients
Many people come into therapy with an idea of how it is all supposed to go. Oftentimes, stereotypes from TV, movies and maybe even your own experiences can leave a bad taste in your mouth. My therapy style is a little different. I'm not here to pander to you or overwhelm you with empathy. When you work with me, you are working with someone who is experience-based and knowledgeable. Your time and effort are valuable and you deserve someone who can meet those needs.
My Background and Approach
My job is not to tell you what to do. Together, we'll find the path that suits you best. During my more than decade-long career, I've worked in treatment centers helping people at the beginning of their process of getting sober. Now in private practice, I am working with people in all stages of their journey. Let's find you relief as quickly as possible. We'll use a combined approach of dealing with daily issues and understanding the root of your problems. You don't have to stay stuck between a rock and a hard place
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
We live in a society that has set us up to misunderstand ourselves. When ideals are based on people who exude high-functioning abilities and perfectly disciplined personality types, it's easy to feel inadequate. The truth is, no one actually lives up to those idealistic expectations. In my opinion, there is nothing inherently "wrong" with anyone. There is nothing that needs to be "fixed". I want to help you understand what's really going on between you and your environment.
