I provide counseling services for individual adults. My role as your counselor is to offer a nonjudgmental space where we can explore together sources of your pain or distress while developing new ways of interacting with your self and others. I offer a strong and supportive presence to assist you in tackling the process of change. We will work together to establish your goals for therapy, and I will assist you in meeting these goals through empathy, engagement, and guidance, while also facilitating new insight, challenging entrenched thought patterns, and assisting you in exploring alternative views and approaches.
Counseling Can Help
We will work collaboratively to develop your goals for counseling. Possible topics to address in counseling may include:
Significant life changes and events
Perinatal Mental Health and transitioning into parental role (See page for Expectant & New Parents)
Grief and Loss
Persistent and distressing memories and recollections from Childhood
Theory & Approach
Therapy is unique to every client, and I utilize a broad range of techniques and approaches, combining them in different ways tailored to best match each individual. I work from a humanistic perspective, drawing from existential theory, internal family systems theory, systems theory, attachment theory, and psychodynamic theory. Additionally, I utilize art therapy techniques as appropriate in our work together, inviting the use of art and creative expression. My work with individuals is additionally informed by my experience as a family therapist. I approach individuals as a part of their family system, larger environment, and place, as I believe that where we come from and who we are around now inform our current state of being.
What to Expect
Change takes time. The change that lasts longest often takes longer to achieve. We will work together to determine what course of therapy makes the most sense to you. Some clients come to therapy for a short time to address a specific behavior or need, and this is done in a few sessions. Other clients wish to work on things that take a longer time to address. Therapy can last from a few meetings to months or years. Whatever brings you to therapy, you are welcome here. We will work together to determine what course of therapy will be most helpful and appropriate to address your unique goals. You are in control of when you wish to end therapy. We will continue to check in throughout our time together to assess how you are feeling about progress on your goals.
