The Therapeutic Process
The therapeutic process looks different for everyone. Therapy is not about quick fixes, it is about establishing a secure and therapeutic relationship with your therapist so that you can integrate your work in a deep way that is lasting. Your results will depend on how you show up and choose to do the work. The more you put in the more you will receive in return. It can be a slow process or a rapid one, it is different for everyone. Some people come to therapy for just a handful of months to help them through difficult life transitions, while others incorporate it into their self care practice and go to therapy for years if not their entire lifetime.
I am a humanistic therapist who is both warm and direct. Some of the modalities I incorporate are: Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Existential therapy, EMDR and Somatic Experiencing. I modify my approach to meet each of my client’s unique styles/needs. Building strong therapeutic relationships and inviting laughter into the room are my hallmarks. I hope to help you gain insight about yourself, cultivate self-awareness and nurture your authentic self.
If you are needing to process and heal trauma, EMDR and Somatic Experiencing may be helpful options for you. I am EMDR trained and trained in the complete beginning level of Somatic Experiencing. Both modalities aid the brain, body and nervous systems in their healing.
In order for us to establish a solid therapeutic relationship, I do ask that you attend therapy four weeks in a row to begin. This helps us get to know each other and for us to quickly build some momentum that will last us throughout our work together. From there we can figure out what frequency of therapy would work for you both financially and emotionally.

What is the cost of a counseling session?
Coaching is distinct from psychotherapy and is available to clients anywhere in the world.
What is Coaching?
Coaching allows for a more collaborative journey and doesn’t include certain retrospective processing, such as trauma work. Coaching tends to be more: strength and solution-focused, present and future-oriented, and focused on skill-building/mentorship/self-efficacy.
As a coach, I will help support, encourage and guide during your pursuit of achieving your life goals.

Coaching is distinct from psychotherapy and cannot replace clinical treatment. Depending on your individual situation, you may be required to see an additional healing professional (ie. therapist, psychiatrist, or physician) in order to work with me as a coach.
