I’m pleased to offer in-person and teletherapy (video) counseling and psychotherapy services to teens and adult individuals to help address a variety of concerns including depression, social anxiety, OCD, trauma, relationship issues, stress, low self-esteem, low confidence, difficult life decisions, and struggles with assertiveness as well as many general mental health issues and concerns. If you need some help identifying or putting a name to an issue or issues that you are interested in addressing, please feel free to view my concern descriptions page, which describes several of the concerns I have helped people address.
Why should I seek counseling through your practice and not somewhere else?
This is an excellent question! And I must start by saying that I’m a firm believer that aside from working with a trained, experienced and licensed counselor, the single greatest factor contributing to a successful and high-quality counseling experience is the strength of the relationship you have with your counselor. I make the therapeutic relationship that I have with each of my clients a priority. I believe that it is through the building of a trusting and collaborative therapeutic relationship, in which you, the client, experience warmth, compassion, positive regard, genuineness, and empathy, combined with a direct yet caring approach, that you experience powerful personal growth, healing, and empowerment.
Some other reasons that I feel confident you will feel comfortable working with me include:
I make it a point to only use counseling approaches and techniques that have been supported by clinical research and are considered effective and are respected within the field of counseling and psychotherapy. You can rest assured that the approaches I use have been demonstrated to work!
I combine counseling approaches, pulling from several of the most respected and effective counseling approaches developed. I don’t just stick to one approach or style that best suits me, rather I tailor my counseling approach to the individual and unique needs of each of my clients. I take into consideration what you feel works best for you and matches what you are looking for in a counseling experience.
My education and training are in the field of Counseling Psychology, with an emphasis on the development of therapeutic skills and techniques. As a result of my training, I am comfortable working with individuals and couples from diverse backgrounds to address a wide range of issues and concerns.
I offer access to a secure online client portal. Through the portal, you may send me secure messages, view your upcoming appointments, request new appointments, and access your billing documents and forms. I’m happy to make myself available to support you in-between appointments and encourage clients to contact me as needed using the portal messenger. The portal will also send you appointment updates and reminders to make keeping track of your scheduled appointments a little easier.
I offer secure teletherapy video counseling appointments. I’m so pleased to be able to offer teletherapy to those are would rather not have to make a trip to an office location to experience the benefits of counseling. For online sessions, I utilize Telehealth by Simple Practice, a HIPPA compliant and secure video conferencing application, which works on most computers and devices that are connected to the internet and have a webcam.
