Hello! I am excited at the possibility of working with you. I recognize reaching out to a therapist can be both exciting and nerve wracking.

About My Clients

Are you struggling with anxiety and/or depression? Do you struggle to do the important things? Maybe your emotions are guiding your decisions and not your values? Going through a big change? Or perhaps, you're having difficulty with parenting? If any of these sound like something you're experiencing, please reach out. I'd be happy to talk with you to see if we would be a good fit for one another. Finding someone you are comfortable with is the most important aspect of successful therapy.

My Background and Approach

I am trained in many modalities that I use in sessions. Together, we can determine the approach that will best support your needs and desires. I often use Cognitive Behavior Therapy which helps people learn about thinking patterns and how to change unhealthy patterns to ones that are more helpful. It can help with rumination as well as racing thoughts too. Mindfulness is often helpful with navigating big feelings too. Have you ever heard of EMDR? I am trained and working towards certification with EMDR. This model can have make a profound impact in processing trauma and losses experienced. You may not have experienced a big trauma, however even smaller things that have a big emotional impact can be applied to this model. I really enjoy using the ACT Model as well (Acceptance Commitment Therapy). Have you ever noticed that often times, it's our negative emotions that lead our decisions and pathways rather than our values? ACT can help you be present in your life and less in your head. T

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

It is really important to me that I support you in your journey. I do not want to foster a situation where I am encouraging you in a direction based on my biases. You come to session with a lifetime of experiences and your cultural background are worth celebrating. Together, we will look at the struggles you face and determine which therapy model may be most effective for you and what you're looking for. I have training in other modalities that are not identified above as well. Let's chat to see if we can be a good fit together! I would want nothing more than for you to feel comfortable with whomever you chose to work with. That will best help you get to where you want to be.
