Therapy can be meaningful for people in many ways. Sometimes it's about finding support through life transitions, exploring family and relationship issues, or managing depression and anxiety.
No matter the issue, I believe that therapy can help most people deepen understanding by having a safe place to explore emotional experiences. I work with my clients to develop goals and priorities to make the most of our time together.

I use a combination of approaches depending on the needs of my clients. However, I primarily draw from psychodynamic theory, client-centered therapy, mindfulness, and cognitive behavioral therapy. If my clients have any questions about treatment modalities, I welcome this discussion in sessions.
Sessions are typically 45-50 minutes long. During the first session, I spend a lot of time gathering information to get an understanding of my clients and the situation. It is typical that in subsequent sessions the flow is more organic and driven by client need.
