What is therapy?
Therapy is an investment in you, your health, and your future. It should be a unique fit for what you need, right now.
I offer both short-term and long-term therapy. You may want support during a short-term stressor. Maybe you're ready to reflect and change around places you feel stuck and are hoping for practical skills to move in the direction you want to grow. Your therapy is an opportunity to take yourself seriously and to partner with a caring professional in a safe space.
Evidence shows that the relationship you build with your therapist is the most important factor in reaching your goals. Once that is established, specific types of therapy can be helpful.
Some therapy, such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy, build on learning skills or changing behaviors. A psychodynamic approach means exploring deeper ground and can lead to fundamental shifts in how you see yourself and your world. EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, uses neurobiology to reintegrate old memories so they are less painful and new learning can take place. I love and am able to offer an eclectic mix tailored to you.
All therapy is personal and confidential. Unless I have imminent concerns about your or someone else's safety, I will not disclose information to others without your written consent.
I believe in the efficacy of therapy and the evidence-based research that supports its positive impact. To me, therapy isn't about re-hashing the past, but understanding how it affects you today, and learning ways to move forward.
