Video Therapy

​Distance doesn't have to mean disconnected! 

Now more than ever, your mental health and wellbeing are a priority. During these unique and challenging times, have you felt increased anxiety and uncertainty, a lack of motivation, and a loss of hope? Are you struggling to transition into this "new normal"? I'm here to help!


Due to COVID-19 social distancing practices, I currently offer telehealth therapy services through a secure video platform. Video therapy effectively offers connection and support from the comfort of your own home.

Healing  |  Hope  |  Harmony

Welcome to possibility!
Seeking therapy is a brave step. It’s not easy to reach out when you feel stuck, hopeless, maybe even ashamed. Whatever you’re feeling, whatever you’re going through, you don’t have to go through it alone.

I'm here to help, because YOU are important and deserving of a satisfying and fulfilling experience of life’s journey. In our work together, we will clarify your vision and empower your voice so you can live more fully as your authentic self.

 

Why Therapy?

Does this feel familiar?

You . . .

  • Are idealistic and driven, sometimes to the point of perfectionism and inner criticism

  • Often feel depleted giving so much to others that there’s little left for yourself

  • Work hard to please others and fulfill duties, yet still feel like you should be doing more

  • Simultaneously (and paradoxically) feel both “not enough” and “too much”

  • Think so intensely and feel so deeply that sometimes it's difficult to contain it all 

  • Ask BIG questions of life — but end up with more uncertainty than direction and clarity

Oy, that's a lot!

I get it, I've been there.

And so have many clients who have come through my door. We all struggle from time to time, because let’s face it, life is no cakewalk (darn)! Struggle is a normal and understandable part of our human experience, considering how tough the forces of life can be. Often, we grow from grappling with these challenges. But other times, we feel truly stuck and unable move forward. Our go-to solutions or ways of coping may not work for us anymore. A situation we find ourselves in may be holding us back. Feeling in limbo between the familiar past and possible future can be confusing, destabilizing, and cause a loss of hope and sense of self. We may experience increased anxiety, depression, relationship conflict, disconnection, and overall uncertainty about who we are, what we’re doing, and how to transition to a different way of being. We may feel at a crossroads and wonder, “Now what?”

Now is the time!

Is therapy for me? 

What do people go to therapy for, anyway? How do I choose a therapist?

There are a thousand and one reasons people seek therapy, since all people are unique with different wants, needs, and paths. No two clients are exactly alike (nor two therapists). There are also as many types of therapy out there as there are kinds of people (well, almost). With that said, we also have common and universal struggles in our shared human experience, and various styles or models of therapy contain core aspects. All therapy aims to honor a client's experience and assist in meaningful change.


People usually seek therapy when they want to see something change in their lives, or they hope to gain more understanding of themselves or a situation. Usually, something feels extra tough or like it's not working anymore. This desired change may present itself in big, broad strokes: "I want to heal from my past trauma and break  unhealthy relationship patterns." — or in more specific, fine lines: "I need some really concrete and immediate help with these recent panic attacks!" In my practice, I work with big and small, the macroscopic views and microscopic details that paint the picture of life. 

In that way, therapy can be for everyone. Everyone deserves a safe and trusting space to feel heard, supported, strengthened, and that someone is truly in their corner. The quality of the relationship between a client and therapist is incredibly important — research shows that, more so than a specific theory or model, this is the number one predictor of successful and positive outcomes for the client. Your right fit therapist is out there! If you feel we could work well together or have questions about my practice, please reach out to schedule an initial call. Let's talk!
