My specialty is women, especially those dealing with life transitions- new job, new relationship, becoming a mom, and other changes that happen in life. These changes affect how we perform at our jobs and in our lives. Having a safe and supportive space to process these things and learn new and healthy coping mechanisms helps us to function at our best even when life isn’t its best…
I use an eclectic approach, which means I combine several evidence-based treatments depending on the situation. I operate from a person-centered approach, believing that the client is the expert, and I guide the client through understanding CBT, SFBT, and Mindfulness techniques and help them learn how to implement those skills into their daily lives to cope with challenges. This helps to develop a tool box of resources to use when other situations come up in the future so you don’t have to go running back to therapy- therapy shouldn’t be lifelong.
My take is that a client comes in when going through a particular struggle, and they work on getting through that while developing a skill set for themselves that they can rely on when future struggles inevitably pop up.
(I offer online therapy, as I feel that busy professionals and moms especially benefit from the convenience and accessibility. I do have options to see patients in person as well.)
