My Approach To Therapy

I believe therapy is a journey. That journey has the power to heal. It can also help you become your true self based on your core values. Our therapy together will be very Action-Oriented.  I am not one to sit back and just encourage you to talk about the stressors of the week.  We identify the issues and patterns that no longer serve you and come up with homework to try different things to address these problem areas.  I think of the homework as experiments we try for a week at a time.  The following week we evaluate what worked or didn't work and tweak things so they work better.  Many problems require continued practice on your end so with time we help you accumulate tools in your tool belt that help you make the necessary changes in your life that previously kept you stuck. I also emphasize the importance of our therapeutic relationship. We work collaboratively to help you identify old patterns of relating to others that no longer serve you. We then work to help move you towards new and healthier ways of being.

I work with adults seeking counseling for help with trauma and depression, those experiencing difficulty with caregiver burnout, new life transitions, or are seeking insight into early life experiences. I also have a passion for working with young adult transgender clients looking at their choices for living a more congruent life.

A little bit about my background

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I graduated from Columbia University School of Social Work in 1998. I always knew I wanted to help others feel better about themselves. My BA in Sociology gave me a wonderful over all view of society and the pressures and messages we get from our culture. In my work with clients, I try to be mindful of the negative messages and beliefs we have about ourselves, and teach tools to challenge those beliefs. Before opening up my own practice, I worked primarily for community mental health clinics, as a supervisor and a clinician.
