“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.” ~David Richo
I offer virtual telehealth psychotherapy services utilizing an evidence-based integrative therapeutic approach based on the individualized clinical need of the patient. My sessions tend to be very interactive, engaging, and collaborative with a touch of humor and fun as appropriate. I enjoy learning just as much from my patients as they learn from me and offer a safe, secure, trusting, & judgement free zone to my patients where they can be their true authentic selves and say whatever is on their mind, as they will get the same in return from me. I typically suggest "therapeutic homework assignments" that are often brief & enjoyable in nature, but also challenging with the purpose of encouraging the patient to engage in some deep self-reflection, critical thinking, & cognitive reframing and learning to view situations and people from various perspectives. Although patients may present with similar presenting problems, I do not treat no two people exactly the same and my therapeutic approach is tailored to each individual based on their personality, interests, & clinical need.
"We are here to listen…not to work miracles…
We are here to help people discover what they are feeling, not to make the feelings go away…
We are here to help people identify their options, not to decide for them what they need to do…
We are here to discuss steps with people, not take steps for them…
We are here to help people discover their own strength, not to rescue them and still leave them vulnerable…
We are here to help people learn to choose, not to make it unnecessary for them to make difficult choices…
We are here to provide support for change…"
