The First Step Forward
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. So have many clients who have come through my door.
We all struggle from time to time. It's a common, understandable, even expected part of the human experience. Often, we grow from grappling with challenges. But other times, we feel stuck and unable move forward. Go-to solutions or ways of coping may no longer work or hold us back. Being in limbo between the familiar past and possible future can feel confusing, destabilizing, and may cause a loss of hope or sense of self. We may experience increased anxiety, depression, relationship conflict, disconnection, and overall uncertainty about who we are, what we’re doing, where to go. At a crossroads, we wonder, “Now what?”
Now is the time!

Is therapy right for me?
What do people go to therapy for, anyway? How do I choose a therapist?
There are countless reasons people seek therapy, since all people are unique with different needs, goals, and paths. No two clients are exactly alike (nor two therapists). Various types and styles of therapy may approach a client's concerns differently. However, at its core, therapy speaks to the universal struggles of the human experience. All therapy aims to honor a client's experience and assist in meaningful change.
People usually seek therapy when they desire a change in life, or they hope to better understand themselves or a situation. Often, something feels extra tough or like it's not working anymore. This may present in big, broad strokes: "I want to heal from past trauma and break unhealthy relationship patterns." — or in more specific, fine lines: "I need some 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 full picture of life.
In that way, therapy can be for everyone. It's a space for you feel heard, supported, and strengthened by someone who is in your corner. The quality of the relationship between a client and therapist is incredibly important. Research shows this factor is the primary predictor of successful therapeutic outcomes for a client, more so than a specific therapy theory or modality. Your right fit therapist is out there! If you feel we might work well together or have questions about my practice, please reach out to schedule an initial call. Let's talk!

Now more than ever, your mental health and wellbeing are a priority. I'm here to help!
Remember at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, when we were facing "unique and challenging times" and struggling with the "new normal"? Yep, I was right there with ya. Here we are almost three years later, and I think it's safe to say... it's still a transition.
One beneficial transition for clients and therapists alike was moving in-person sessions to telehealth, or remote video/phone therapy. At the start of the pandemic, I began providing telehealth for clients out of necessity. Now, after relocating recently from California to Oregon, I'm able to continue offering telehealth to clients in either state.
Telehealth is effective and convenient. It's a practical alternative for clients with mobility concerns and a flexible option for those with busy schedules. Location and distance are no longer limiting factors.
Clients can attend sessions more easily than ever before — You're a young teen, can't drive yourself yet, and don't have transportation to my office? No problem! You're a professional, you work late hours and battle traffic, so you'd like to schedule a session during your afternoon break? I got you!
While telehealth offers many benefits, it may not be a suitable therapy format for everyone. Please contact me to discuss your needs and see if telehealth might be a good fit for you.
My video therapy services are offered through a secure and HIPAA-compliant video platform.
