When was the last time you felt like you could completely be yourself? How often have you really felt like someone understood you? Our therapy sessions will be a confidential and safe place where you can come as you are and a place where you will be heard, understood, and accepted just as you are. I am supportive, curious, and genuine. I will hold space for you to experience your thoughts and emotions and work to appropriately challenge you at times as well.
I take an approach that incorporates aspects of humanistic, cognitive, existential, and psychodynamic counseling. I can help you transform the way you understand and relate to your thoughts, beliefs, emotions and behaviors. I believe that by increasing awareness of ourselves and our patterns we have the power to change the patterns that either aren’t working anymore or maybe never have worked. I help my clients achieve greater mental well-being, decreased symptoms of anxiety or depression, greater confidence, and a sense of ease and control in their lives.
Before I became a therapist, I worked in the corporate world for 15 years in positions in the banking and finance, software, and corporate real estate sectors so I understand what it means to have a highly demanding job and how that can impact mental health. In addition and, as a result, I also have a deep understanding of and a no-nonsense approach to discretion and confidentiality in everything I do.
When I am not in my therapy office, you will likely find me playing blues riffs on my electric guitar, reading a good book, walking in a park, or attempting to cook.
