Finding the Right Therapist Can Be Challenging

It's such a big decision, and there are so many choices. You don't want to settle on someone who just shows up on your Google search, but you're also not exactly sure what you're looking for.

I've created this page so you can get a better sense of how I can help, and decide if I seem like the right fit for you. I want you to get a snapshot of how I show up in the room. I want to paint a picture of what it's like to work with me. I want you to feel comfortable as you make the decision to reach out to me.

Finding the right therapist is so much more than knowing what model they use or how many years of experience they have.

You want someone who is real.
Who gets it.
Who truly knows the path you're walking down right now as you reach this turning point of starting your healing journey.

You deserve someone who is nurturing, wise, and compassionate.
A therapist who is fully present with you in each moment, as you share the most vulnerable places in your heart.

You deserve someone who isn't afraid of hard conversations or who is just checking the boxes.

My guess is that what you really want to know is, will we click? Will you get me? After all, your therapy isn't a job description that I can fit. It's your heart, soul, and mind I will be working with. I don't take that lightly. I feel honored to be let into your deepest places.

How It Starts

As you walk through my door, we'll begin with where you are today, and I'll gently guide you as we explore at your pace.

We won’t go too fast or too deep. I'll be respectful of your timing. We'll pause or take a different path as needed. I’m here to walk beside you and partner with you, not dig around and push you before you’re ready.

Although you can open up and share any aspect of your heart and mind, without fear of judgment or burdening anyone, you'll share only as much as you're comfortable with.

As we build trust in our relationship, you’ll show me the tender places. We’ll gently shed light on them and see what’s there.

As we work together, I will form an extensive picture of the puzzle pieces that make up your heart. And with that picture in mind, I will guide you through the dark and painful places.

I will help you put the puzzle pieces together.

What Happens Next

As we build trust in our relationship, you'll start to let it all be seen. Not just the pretty parts and the parts you think are safe to show.

Similar to growing a garden, we’ll get on our hands and knees together, down in the dirt and weeds, so you can emerge clean and ready for what life brings your way. Ready to grow and blossom.

There’s so much freedom that emerges.

It’s hard work, but it’s so worth it.

Re-imagine Your Possibilities

Say goodbye to settling on being single or in an unsatisfying relationship.

I get it. I’ve been there too. I’ve found so much benefit from seeking help, and it has really transformed my life. I went to school because I knew that I could help women like you, just like I found healing myself.

I bring all my experience, both personal and professional, to the table.

We’ll put it to work so you can break free.
