Work With Me

You've taken the first step by being here. The next step is to reach out.

Areas of Specialty

Anxiety

If you find yourself up late at night, dwelling about the past, or worrying about the future, I get it. 

When we let fear and worry get in the way of living our lives, it can end up creating even more anxiety on top of the anxiety we already have!

Luckily, with practice, you can literally shift the way your brain functions, and start to live from a place of calm and courage.

Depression

When we think about depression, we often think of sadness. 

But sometimes, depression can look like low energy. Or burnout. Or feeling stuck with no way out.

If you feel like nothing is every going to get better no matter how hard you try, I have good news for you. It can. 

You just might need a little support.

Self-Esteem

If you’re constantly telling yourself “Once I have that {promotion, partner, income level, body, etc.}, then I’ll finally feel good about myself,” you might be searching forever.

And I have a news flash: your worth is intrinsic, with or without these external factors. 

I’m here to help you expand your view of yourself, so you can feel good about who you are from the inside out.

First time going to therapy?

As an avid knitter and a huge fan of therapeutic metaphors, this is the best way for me to describe what therapy is like:

Imagine your worries as a tangled clump of yarn in your head. Over time, more yarn accumulates, and you eventually find yourself trapped by a mass of worry, indecision, and fear. Untangling it seems impossible because you don’t even know where to begin. 

Think about what it would feel like to have someone carefully help you sort out those worries so you are no longer confined by them. You can finally breathe!

Together, we will untangle those thoughts, and roll them up into neat balls of yarn. They may still exist in your mind, but they’ll be much more manageable. 

With practice, you’ll be able to sort out your thoughts with greater ease, and perhaps even create something beautiful out of them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many young professionals are attracted to my practice because I understand the unique struggles that people growing up in this day and age deal with, for I too have lived them.

I work with a lot of women and men in their 20’s and 30’s who are experiencing anxiety and/or depression, difficult life transitions, and/or grief and loss. Everyone’s experience is unique, but there are a few themes that tend to come up with the individuals I work with:

  • social anxiety that prohibits you from living your life fully
  • overextending yourself in the workplace and/or in relationships
  • sadness and grief due to heartbreak or loss
  • feeling stagnant and not knowing how to get “unstuck”
  • confusion around sexual identity
  • feeling completely overwhelmed and burnt out and not knowing how to relax

Good question! I always say – go with your gut. I recommend you check out my About Page and My Blog to get a better sense my beliefs and my style, which may help you decide. You can also fill out the form above to schedule a consult call. If I don’t think I can help you with what you’re going through, I can provide a referral for someone who is more aligned with your needs. 

Yes! I am an out-of-network provider, which means you can use your insurance if you have out-of-network benefits.

If you aren’t sure about your out-of-network benefits, I recommend you call your provider and ask the following questions: 

  1. What are my out-of-network benefits for outpatient mental health treatment?
  2. Do I have an out-of-network deductible that needs to be met?
  3. What percent of my therapy session fee will be covered by insurance once my deductible is met?
  4. Are there any other restrictions surrounding my out-of-network plan that I should be aware of?
  5. (I recommend you get the name or ID of the person you speak to, and a reference number for the call).

If you do have out-of-network benefits, usually therapy sessions be covered in part or in full by your insurance company once you hit your deductible.

If you do not have out-of-network benefits, I provide sliding scale slots depending on income and financial circumstance.

It depends on what your goals are. 

If you’re coming in because of a crisis of some sort, therapy can last around 6 months to a year.

If you’re looking to address more deeply rooted patterns of behavior, therapy might end up lasting longer. 

I have found that many individuals deeply value having the time and space each week to address their mental and emotional health.

Our first session is a little bit like a warm up. 

For you, it is a great opportunity to ask any questions and see if I’m the right fit for what you’re looking for.

I’ll collect some general information about you and your past experiences, learn more about what has brought you in, and get an understanding of what you’d like to accomplish during our time together.

Each session runs 45-50 minutes. 

I have found that the therapeutic process is much more effective when it becomes a part of a person’s routine, which is why I see clients at least once a week.

Just like exercise – if you don’t make the time and space to work out, you’re very unlikely to get the desired results you want!

This is a great question, and one that is hard to answer. Much of this depends on why you are in therapy, and how motivated you are to make changes in your life.

What I’ll say is that sometimes, you may look forward to going to therapy, other times you might dread it. Sometimes you might feel really good after a session, and other times you might feel exhausted or really sad. There may be days where you have a ton to talk about, and other days where you feel like there isn’t much to say.

Therapy can dredge up a lot of buried feelings, and sorting them all out is difficult, and takes time. 

So, if you want to know if therapy is working, pay attention to what is happening outside of your therapy sessions. Are you trying out new ways of thinking and behaving? Are you reacting to others differently? Are you becoming more self-aware? Are you more easily able to recognize certain patterns in your life? 

Finding the right therapist and building a trusting relationship is a very important part of the process. So if you feel safe enough to express yourself, that’s a good sign.
