“Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up.”
Whether you are helping your child manage their food allergy anxiety, seeking support navigating life’s challenges, searching for your child or teen to gain coping skills, or an adult looking for stress management strategies and seeking positive life changes, psychotherapy can be a powerful tool for healing and growth.
Whatever your situation, I am here to help you.
What to Expect?
Finding the right fit in a therapist is essential to your experience, therefore our first meeting will be a twenty-minute free phone consult to learn about you, your reason for exploring therapy, and for you to meet me. Schedule a free therapy consult here.
Our next session will include an intake where I will learn more about you, your challenges and your goals for therapy. This will give you an opportunity to learn about the therapy process. For children, the first session generally occurs with just parents or caregiver. Both telehealth and in person sessions are available.
Some reasons for referral:
- Food allergy anxiety
- Managing life changes
- Family stressors
- Mood dysregulation
- Low self esteem
- Stress management
For a successful experience, my goal is to provide you with a supportive, compassionate non-judging space. I will introduce tools to help manage your feelings and what you are going through, empower you to move forward, and find your team or tribe to do that with. While working with children I might invite parents into sessions to teach the tools we are using in therapy so you can support your child outside of the therapy space. I may also attend meetings and collaborate with your child’s physicians, teachers, or other providers when helpful.
Each session is tailored to your needs; therefore, I might use a variety of approaches including, cognitive behavior therapy, insight-oriented therapy, skill building, play therapy, and mindfulness strategies.
