Within the safety and connection of the therapeutic relationship, your challenges and ineffective ways of being will become clearer to you.

Psychotherapy can be a powerful tool to assist people with exploring and identifying obstacles that have interfered with, or continue to obstruct living the life you want. My approach to psychotherapy is supportive, directive, and person-centered. The process is collaborative and meets you where you are at regarding your readiness to explore and tackle areas of concern. Supportive and motivational techniques are used to process ambivalence or lack of readiness and provides you with the safe and reflective space to overcome the things that have stood in your way.

Getting into psychotherapy is a courageous act. Most people would solve their problems themselves if they could, but life can be complicated and daunting. It takes courage to find someone you can really trust -- someone with a sharp mind and compassionate heart who will treat you with respect, who will listen carefully and objectively. I am honored to invite clients into the healing process of psychotherapy. There will be lots of listening, lots of questions to make you think and, perhaps, to see your life from a new angle, and a suggestion or two of new options that you might not have considered.

The decision to begin psychotherapy can be life-changing. I work to guide clients towards achieving their personal goals and reaching their potential by helping them to discover new, creative responses to life's inevitable stressors. I believe that a safe, nonjudgmental space is essential for allowing one to feel free enough to work on problems they are facing. Together, we will work toward shining light over pathways that lead to enriching new experiences, more meaningful relationships and deeper overall satisfaction. I treat adults, adolescents, and couples, using an integrative approach that combines psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapies, tailoring treatment to each individual.

One of the most life altering actions when seeking to gain traction in the struggle to live a satisfying life is the choice to work with a therapist. It signaled a ground-breaking change in our approach to meeting the challenges we faced; demonstrating a shift that embraced the possibility of tapping into knowledge and support outside our own skull. Most of us have a better ability to see and understand the actions and motivation of others than our own. We all have personal blind spots. This is evident early in therapy, when one experiences striking progress as a result of new insights gained in therapy.

If you look at my website you will see me certified in so many areas of treatment, you will think it almost impossible that any one individual could truly have so varied a list of intervention techniques. My philosophy has always been that there is something of value for certain patients in one or more of the psychotherapy techniques that have been developed by masters of the art. Whether it’s cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or its third wave offshoots like DBT or ACT (google the acronyms if you’re puzzled), or EMDR for trauma, or Imago for couples therapy, or Reiki for pain, or, or, or—I want to know how to apply it effectively for you—if that’s what’s going to better your quality of life i....

When we experience chronic conflict in our romantic relationships, it can significantly impact our quality of life. Sometimes, one partner is ready to seek professional help and the other is not. Meredith provides psychotherapy to these individuals, while working towards getting their partner on board with participating in therapy. She offers emotional support to the partner seeking help, consultation to the partner not yet comfortable attending, and teaches strategies for effective conflict resolution.

Using a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Therapy I help clients get unstuck, and move forward towards their goals and dreams! My approach allows my clients to safely explore their feelings, get a greater understanding into why the act the way they do (even when they know better), and allows them to learn to self advocate, improve communication, as well as build new skills to cope with anxiety, depression, and trauma.
