Every provider is different, so it is important to find one that matches your needs. I try to bring compassion, positivity, humor, friendliness, authenticity, and respect into every session. I strive to help you understand how your body, mind, and relationships affect how you feel, what you think, and how you behave, so you can mindfully make choices that align with your values. This is often referred to as a biopsychosocial or holistic mind-body approach. I also customize counseling to meet the unique needs of each client, so you can learn new skills and knowledge in ways that work best for you while taking steps toward your values and goals.
I primarily work with adolescents and adults who need help with anxiety, worry, panic, obsessive compulsive disorder, trauma, depression, overwhelm, low self-worth, and healing from the stress of growing up in a “dysfunctional” family. In addition, I assist clients with the challenges of discovering their self-identities and values while building healthy relationships.
I’m also passionate about helping parents facing the challenges of pregnancy, postpartum, and parenthood and have been involved with supporting moms and dads in the postpartum mental health community since 2004.
My standard fee is $40 per 50-minute session, and a sliding-scale fee is available. I am happy to talk with you via phone prior to scheduling the first session to help you determine if my services will benefit you.
