The search for support can be a difficult first step. You deserve to find a therapist you feel safe and connected with, whether that's me or someone else. Feel free to reach out for a brief phone consultation to navigate the process of finding the right fit.
Motivated by the inherent potential of people and the mysticism of life, I'm driven to help my clients find what works for them. My approach is holistic, fluid, and individualized—so if you want nothing to do with mindfulness, just let me know! Together, we’ll create a safe, judgment-free space to explore your wants and needs. I like to describe therapy as the two of us on a boat: you’re the captain steering the ship, and I’m the passenger helping to navigate. Wherever you're at on your journey, I'm willing to meet you there and support you in reaching your desired destination.
I'm currently offering virtual appointments on Mondays and Tuesdays and in-person visits on Wednesdays. Let me know if you're interested in a nature-based approach, and we can talk about that option on an individual basis.
I've spent most of my time working with children and families in the school system and through community mental health. While much of my work has been supporting parents and adolescents, I also have personal and professional experience with anxiety and depression, working with people from age 7 to 67.
The Technical Stuff
If you're looking for support, but not sure what you need, just ask. I'm more than willing to go through the various approaches to therapy to help you discover what's best for you. My approach is generally an eclectic, person-centered mix of cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, mindfulness-based, family systems, play and art informed, and trauma-focused therapy. I also offer aspects of wilderness and nature therapy and an eagerness to learn and share the latest advances in the field.
