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. My approach is two-pronged - I help you identify and clarify your core values to help guide you in becoming the best version of yourself. I also emphasize the importance of our therapeutic relationship. I work collaboratively with you to 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.  If you have a history of trauma, be sure to click on my EMDR page for more helpful information on trauma.  Click on any of my specialties Trauma, EMDR, Transgender services, and Life Transitions to go directly to those pages.  Whether you are looking for healing, understanding, or growth, I would love to talk with you to see if we would be a good fit.  Click HERE to contact me for a free 15-minute consultation.

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.

If you are ready to start tackling those issues holding you back, click here to reach me for a free 15 minute consultation that could be the start of a whole new life for you.
