Accepting Clients

As a therapist, I am interested in exploring how problems are shaped by the complicated social, cultural, and political contexts we live in.

About My Clients

I work with clients experiencing bipolar disorder, depression, chronic illness, and anxiety, often along with job and career stress or relationship concerns. Maybe you've been depressed for a while and nothing you've tried has helped. Maybe you’re stuck in a difficult work situation, trying to find direction, or dealing with a sudden illness or unexpected conflict.

My Background and Approach

My approach to therapy is collaborative - whether you are new to therapy, have had unsatisfactory experiences in the past, or looking to start again, I aim to offer alternative ways of looking at the problems in your life. How are you currently coping? What is working and what would you like to be doing differently? I utilize post-modern and solution focused approaches, while integrating exploration of your values and helping you build coping skills for managing difficult situations.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that you are more than a diagnosis and that problems need to be examined within the context of the world we live in. Your distress may very well be a reasonable response to living in a society that is hyper-focused on productivity and consumerism. The pressures of trying to conform or live up to impossible standards can lead us to forget about our own hopes, dreams, and desires. However, it doesn't have to be this way. I believe we each have strengths and resources that can help us stand up to the challenges we face. My hope is to help you feel empowered to lead a more purposeful and fulfilling life.
