Currently offering teletherapy or phone sessions.
Session Formats: Individuals
Practice Description: I specialize in depression, anxiety, relationship issues, sleep issues, stress and coping, infertility, and life coaching. The specific focus of our therapy sessions will depend on your needs and preferences. There is no one size fits all and every client is unique.

I use evidence-based techniques that have been proven to work. Our therapy relationship will be built on genuineness, warmth, acceptance, trust and openness.

What can you expect out of therapy?

1. Understanding you and your situation - The first step is for me to learn about you and your situation. The more I can put myself in your shoes, the more we can figure a best way forward together.

2. Reducing your symptoms - You may be experiencing symptoms, like feelings of anxiety, negative thoughts, or problems sleeping. These things can make it difficult to get through your daily life. We’ll work together to reduce these symptoms so you can start to feel better as soon as possible.

3. Figuring out the root of your challenges - We’ll explore what caused you to feel this way in the first place. The more you can understand the reasons behind the challenges in your life, the more proactive you can be in confronting and overcoming these challenges in the future.

4. Building your confidence going forward - We will work together to anticipate future challenges and develop a strategy for overcoming them. You will learn and practice skills, like effective communication, that will help you along the way. The goal is for you to feel confident and prepared as you move forward.

Please call, email, or text me to find out more about our work together or to schedule an appointment. My practice is a 10 minute walk from the King Street metro station and I see clients during the evenings.
