so, what exactly is therapy?
Therapy, also called psychotherapy or counseling, is the process of meeting with a therapist to work towards positive change in your life. It may involve taking a deeper look at your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and relationships.
Beginning therapy can be a big step toward becoming the healthiest version of yourself, feeling better, finding inner strength, and learning to make choices that are the best for you. Through therapy, you can discover more about yourself, what motivates you, find out how to overcome obstacles, and improve your life.
What's it like to work with me?
When meeting with me, you can expect a genuine interaction with a real person. I've found having a more down-to-earth approach helps my clients to feel more comfortable with the process and get more out of the experience. I'm not the type of therapist that will ask "How does that make you feel?" over and over.
My aim is to be a supportive presence that helps you to reach your goals. I provide a judgment-free zone where you are accepted for who you are, and where you can focus on the person that you want to become. Often many youth and adults are not completely sure of their goals at the beginning of this process, that is something that we can figure out together.
How do i know if therapy is right for me (or my teen)?

how much does it cost?
$130 for a 50 minute session. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns about paying for therapy.
