I believe in the power of therapy to create peace, healing, and growth. Coming from a strengths-based orientation, I acknowledge the resiliency required to get you to where you are today, even if this is not where you want to be forever.
Together, we will examine how the past may be impacting your present. By deepening insight into patterns of thought and behavior which do not serve us well, we can foster new, positive ways of engagement with self and others.
My role is to provide you with a safe space in which to explore issues of importance to you, facilitate your process, and cheer you on, every step of the way.
I came to this profession through a mid-life career change, earning my Masters in Counseling Psychology from The Wright Institute last year, after multiple administrative roles, primarily supporting child and adult students of all races, socio-economic levels, religions, sexual orientations, and gender presentations. I am also a parent of two grown children, and for over 10 years, I was a stay-at-home mom who was highly involved in volunteering, including service on two nonprofit boards. I believe that it is precisely these life experiences which enrich my ability to support a wide variety of clients in achieving their goals.
I would describe my demeanor as warm and playful, though I take my clients’ issues and unique traumas very seriously, and believe that our connection will be a key component to your progress in therapy. Particular areas of focus for me are women, in all stages of life, young adults, and adolescents. I am committed to providing culturally-sensitive services to a diverse group of clients.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me. I welcome your call or email to further explore whether we would be a good fit.
