Therapy is a safe space for you to talk about the things that are keeping you up at night. I work to create an environment that is comfortable and warm, without judgment, so you are free to unpack the thoughts, feelings, and circumstances that have been burdening you. Therapy can take place in my office in Claremont or online via video sessions (teletherapy).* You can talk about anything in therapy; including your current problems, events from your childhood or past, and any worries about the future. I have education and training to guide you to a better understanding and help you reach your goals.
Research shows that therapy is most effective when you are matched with a skilled therapist who you have a good rapport or relationship with. I work to build that trusting relationship with my clients and will refer you to other therapists in the area if we are not a good fit for each other. I have over a decade of experience providing psychological services for diverse clients.
