"Three things cannot long be hidden:
the sun, the moon, and the truth." - Buddha
There are many stressors in today's world. How do you stay sane when everything around you feels insane?
I'm here to help with that. Help might look like:
Help might be a combination of these things, or something else altogether. It all depends on you and your situation.
My version of therapy is that it's a process of getting to know yourself better. I am not here to "fix" you, because my belief is that you're not "broken." I am here to help you understand yourself better, so that you know why you do the things you do. It is up to you to decide what you want to change.
You are the expert on your own life and yet I've learned that lots of people hide from themselves. It is my job to draw you out and help you find the value of your being. To help you love yourself- not despite certain things, but because of them. Together we will discover what makes you classically you.
With knowledge comes choice and with choice comes happiness. My only goal is to help you live a happier and more fulfilled life.
My specialty is meeting people where they are. I am here to help you understand YOU better.
I've always had a love for psychology although that's not where my career started. My work life began in a veterinary clinic for several years and then moved into pharmacy. From there, I settled into a laboratory technician position in research and development where I worked my way up to research chemist. I then left the laboratory to work in technical sales. It gave me the opportunity to brainstorm with other research chemists without having to get my hands dirty. However, I soon realized that I cared more about when my clients took their last vacation than I did if they bought any of the products I was selling. This led me to think that maybe it was time for a career change. So I went back to school, and in 2013, I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology. I am happy to say that I have finally found my niche. I love, love, love what I do!
I work with individual adults and couples. Individual appointments are typically 60 minutes, although I can do 90 or 120 minute sessions by request. Couples sessions are typically 75-90 minutes.
My standard fee is $140/hour. A standard couples session is $175 for 75 minutes. I also offer a limited number of low fee appointments and have developed specialized fees for particular situations.
