Maya Angelou famously wrote, “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” Let’s collaborate as co-authors of the life you want to live. You’re the expert on your story, and within our sessions we can translate that into the changes you’re looking for. Together, we can approach whatever chapter you’re in with new eyes, fresh strategy, and a little humor.
My approach to client-centered therapy is infusing our sessions with the best practices for you, and tailoring our sessions toward finding your happiest and healthiest self. My strategies include using the latest research, a customized treatment plan, and an empathetic ear. This can often look like elements of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy, the Gottman Method, and other well-proven methods that have helped thousands of people. I can offer you a space free of judgment, pressure, and expectations to explore your next steps.
In my time with clients, I have often explored the themes of romantic relationships and couples therapy, grief and loss, familial changes, and the challenges of anxiety, depression, and mood changes. Whatever your needs may be, I welcome you to the life changing process of therapy which reveals all of the abundant hope, joy, and growth that life has to offer.
