About my work: I know what it means to have a problem that doesn’t get better despite trying all the common solutions. Having struggled with depression myself, it is through perseverance and looking outside the box that I have learned to enjoy my life. I work generally work in a two-step process. The first step is to help you find practical solutions to manage the immediate issues at hand. The second step is to help you explore the deeper internal struggles that contributed to these issues so you can work to resolve them at their core. Stylistically, I am an experiential therapist. This means I don’t work from a set script of techniques; rather I work with each person based on their goals and values. I often share stories and use humor to help people understand that they are not alone in what they are going through. Because I know working through mental health issues can be hard, I try to be as flexible as possible. I provide evening/weekend appointments, and sessions longer than 60 minutes when desired (negotiable depending on payment method).
