Telehealth (Video/Phone) Therapy
Practice Description:
Currently offering therapy via phone and/or video conferencing for new and existing clients. Specifically, in an effort to reduce everyone's coronavirus exposure risk and continue to 'flatten the curve' most services have been moved to a secure HIPPA compliant video platform -

It is a true privilege to work with each of my clients, I honor these relationships and the trust placed with me. My practice is eclectic: some clients are working through trauma issues, while others are addressing difficulties coping with life transitions, relationship issues, anxiety and depression, or emotional instability.

I hope you will look forward to our sessions – as we are working on creating the change you want in your life. Together, in a safe space, we work through the issues that are troubling you. I strive to understand your issues in the context of your unique experience rather than from a pathological perspective of you having something wrong or being broken. We identify the obstacles and figure out how you want to address them. Although sometimes this means talking about difficult subjects, it is my responsibility to help you feel comfortable and safe to do so.

My style is relaxed and engaged during our meetings. Even though we are addressing complicated and sometimes painful subjects, it is not surprising for my clients to find themselves laughing as they share their life with me. Our time together is yours, and you deserve to get what you need from it. I am client-centered in my therapeutic approach – your ideas, needs and goals drive our session.

As a client-centered therapist, I focus on harm reduction, cognitive behavioral (CBT) and mindfulness interventions. My focus is enabling you to make the positives changes you desire. I have a wide variety of clinical experience that allows me to therapeutically intervene in a way that is meaningful to each person I work with. I look forward to assisting you in your journey.
