Psychotherapy?! What a funny word. I am a psychotherapist, NOT a psycho therapist! :) Others call me a counselor or "the talk lady." People who find me tend to be parents who are looking for support for their children. I use research based therapies that bring empowerment, positive behavior changes, and less frustration and stress. I specialize in youth aged 3-25 who have experienced some level of stress like a divorce, bullying, self-harm, sexting or abuse. Youth nowadays have a different mentality, and I also support parents in understanding and connecting with their children. If you call for a free phone consult and I don't think we are a good match, I will give you multiple referrals.

Psychotherapy as a whole is a form of support I strongly believe can help anyone struggling with a wide array of issues. Simply having the space to confide in someone who is safe, non judgmental, validating, and consistent can make a great impact in your healing process. I value client-therapist alliance and am a firm believer that the relationship between a client and therapist is the most important factor in whether therapy will be deemed successful by the client.

I use brief Psychotherapy in situations where people need to recall or talk about their past to work through it and try to heal from it. There can be many adversities as we grow from a baby into adulthood. Sweeping things under-the-rug doesn't work. The pain and anger will come out somewhere and you may have no idea where it's coming from! What my purpose is, is to help you resolve whatever you can so that you no longer need to remain just a victim of childhood, or even ADULT neglect, abuse (mental & emotional), or physical or sexual abuse. I'd like to help you move up the continuum from victim to survivor to thriver & maybe even self-actualizer! YOUR PAST DOESN'T HAVE TO DEFINE WHO YOU ARE!

While there are many misconceptions about what psychotherapy is and who can benefit from therapy, essentially therapy is a personal learning process that is focused on meeting your own defined goals for self-improvement. People may seek therapy if issues or problems feel overwhelming or if they begin to interfere with their overall functioning. I am here to assist with facilitating lifestyle changes, provide supportive and objective feedback, assist you in identifying underlying cause of distress, to teach you better ways of coping with stress and difficulty. As a trained therapist I will work with you and assist you in the journey of self-healing, growth, insight, and transformation.

Psychotherapy varies depending on the personalities of the psychotherapist and client, and the particular problems you are experiencing. Psychotherapy is a bit like a medical doctor visit in which it calls for a very active effort on your part. You will have to work on things we talk about during our sessions as well as on your own between sessions. Psychotherapy has benefits and risks. You may experience uncomfortable feelings like anxiety, sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness and helplessness. However, research shows psychotherapy benefits people who go through it. It leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reduction in distress.

This is, to me, the most in-depth therapy that I provide. It requires a relationship with the client. And a level of trust that being in that space together is a safe place. It mandates a great history, an accurate diagnosis and a treatment plan that drives the process forward. Most psychotherapy leaves clients feeling tired afterwards because it challenges them to deal with their feelings, allowing the insights to come and the revelations to incur. Psychotherapy is the utmost marvel of my work. And the ultimate healing for most clients who engage in it and allow the process to work.

Choices! Research shows that we are more likely to change when we have choices. Together we will identify research-based interventions that can help you cope more effectively with the problems you are experiencing and help you feel better. Psychiatrist Irving Yalom said "It's the relationship that heals!" I firmly believe this and will work with you to form a relationship that feels safe - one that helps you tap into your own wisdom and strengths. You will become more familiar with who you are and will allow yourself to live your life more freely and more fully.
