Psychodynamic Theory, Experiential Methods, and Person-Centered Therapy
paying close attention to timing and only going at your pace
a solid therapeutic relationship, so we can explore your challenges at the deepest level
gaining valuable insight about the relationships in your life from my relationship with you
the long-term in mind so you can have benefits that finally last
Besides being a psychotherapist...
I am a spouse and a mother to two children - (a toddler and a tween!)
I like to hike with my family, travel when I can, and sink my teeth into a big, challenging project
