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 help identifying or putting a name to an issue or issues 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 elsewhere?
This is an excellent question! And I must start by saying that I firmly believe that aside from working with a trained, experienced, and licensed counselor, the greatest factor contributing to a successful and high-quality counseling experience is the strength of your relationship 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 the following:
I make it a point to only use counseling approaches and techniques supported by clinical research, considered effective and respected within counseling and psychotherapy. You can rest assured that my approaches have been demonstrated to work!
I combine counseling approaches, pulling from several of the most respected and effective approaches developed. I don’t just stick to one approach or style that best suits me; instead, I tailor my counseling approach to each client’s individual and unique needs. I consider what you feel works best for you and matches what you seek 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 various issues and concerns.
I offer access to a secure online client portal. You may send me secure messages through the portal, 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 offer teletherapy to those who would rather not have to visit an office to experience the benefits of counseling. For online sessions, I utilize Telehealth by Simple Practice. This HIPPA-compliant and secure video-conferencing application works on most computers, mobile phones, and electronic devices connected to the internet and has a webcam. For more information, visit my Teletherapy page.
