SERVICES I OFFER
Through one-on-one therapy, we are able to explore the depths of our experiences and emotions while also obtaining a greater sense of self and of others. Clients may experience personal growth, empowerment, and enrichment in the quality of their life. Each person’s struggles and journey through life is unique and honored in the therapeutic process and therapeutic goals are tailored to these individual needs. Additionally, therapy may be used in conjunction with medication treatment in which I would refer to and collaborate with a psychiatrist or primary care physician.
Common themes addressed in individual therapy include: managing stress and feelings of overwhelm, working through life transitions, empowerment of self and building sense of self-worth, development of coping strategies for depression and anxiety, processing grief and loss, addressing relationship challenges, development of personal, life, and career goals.
Teletherapy is virtual therapy using a computer/smartphone/tablet through a safe, confidential, and HIPPA compliant platform. Links to all virtual sessions are provided in appointment reminders sent from me to the individual client. Teletherapy allows greater access to therapy for most individuals, reduces the amount of wait time, and alleviates the need for travel time and additional time off of work or out of your day. Whether you are in the comfort of your own home, car, or outside, you may find teletherapy allows more privacy and more flexibility to accessing your therapeutic needs.
Teletherapy is not recommended if you are experiencing more severe symptoms around depression, if you have a history of or feel you are at risk of self-harm or suicidal ideation, or if you are in need of more intensive care beyond once weekly therapy sessions.
Therapy with adolescents consists of both traditional talk therapy as well as more creative and expressive methods such as the use of art, games, and music. Teenagers are often challenged by intensified emotions and experiences while still developing into young adults. Because of this, therapy can be a difficult place for teenagers who value privacy and trust. As a therapist I believe in honoring a teenager’s need for space and independence while also acknowledging the role parents still play in their lives. Therapy becomes a collaborative effort, as parents are brought in to the process for obtaining information, obtaining feedback on the client and assisting in bridging communication gaps. At times I may choose to meet just with the parents to teach additional parenting skills that may benefit their children.
Common themes addressed in adolescent therapy include: development of healthy self-image, improving the quality of parental relationships, finding and using your voice, working through challenges with peers and school, finding purpose and meaning in one’s life, processing feelings of depression or anxiety.
Walking therapy brings together traditional talk therapy with physical movement outside in the natural world. Regardless of what that world looks like - urban or rural, mountains or beach - there are healing aspects to melding these two therapies into one unified practice, elevating the benefits of a therapeutic conversation with the healing release of endorphins from physical exercise and the outer environment.
*A confidentiality and liability waiver form is required which will be provided prior to the first session. In addition, please note insurance does not cover the cost of walking therapy.
