Is it for me?
Telehealth is not for everyone and definitely has its pros and cons. I make sure to do my best to ensure a safe and confidential setting for every session, and to minimize any technological difficulties. I strongly adhere to confidentiality and the platform I use is HIPAA compliant to ensure privacy each step of the way. Take time to consider if you believe telehealth could work for you. I am also happy to discuss this further with you, should you have additional questions.
How would you describe therapy with you?
My job is to support my clients. I will never judge or make assumptions about your experiences in life. You are the expert on your world, and I work hard to understand and validate your experiences. I genuinely and wholeheartedly believe in each individual’s strength and ability to achieve their goals in life, whatever their goals might be.
We are all impacted by our relationships with other people, no matter how big or small the impact might be. I like to explore how clients interact with others in their world, and how past experiences impact future interactions. Additionally, our adult relationships are often reflections of our childhood relationships. I work with clients to identify patterns in their interpersonal relationships and work collaboratively to ease concerns the client may have. However, as my mother told me when I was young (and still does today), I do not have a magic wand to “fix” problems. My job is to provide support and to guide clients towards a safe, secure, and comfortable relationship with their world.

My Personal Journey:
I have always been the “go-to” friend for advice and support. I have also always been “the sensitive one” in my family of origin. I am deeply empathic and feel constantly attuned to others’ emotions. After an extremely tumultuous and chaotic relationship in high school, I developed a deep passion for learning and exploring what a healthy relationship looks and feels like. During my undergraduate studies, I double majored in Psychology and Sociology which allowed me to explore how we function in society both individually on a micro level and in groups on a macro level. I then went straight into my Master of Science in Counseling where I specialized in Marriage, Couples, and Family Therapy. I have also gone to therapy myself so am familiar with and understand the client perspective.
