Services Offered


I want therapy to be worthwhile for you, rather than just one more item on the to-do list or one more stressor in your life.  Here's how we can partner together to make this process as beneficial as possible:

In our work together, I commit to:

  • Prepare for our sessions and host the space well
  • Being available and accessible in between sessions, and responding to your requests and needs
  • Learning and growing in my skills in order to serve you better
  • Being direct and honest with you
  • Connecting you with additional resources
  • Holding out hope and a vision of the good things ahead for you

In our work together, you can:

  • Stay engaged and committed to the process, even when it's difficult to do so
  • Ask me about the process and any concerns/struggles you may have with therapy
  • Take risks to share as you are able
  • Hold onto hope when the process feels discouraging
  • Make room and space for others who may be in the therapy process with you
  • Be as direct and honest with me as possible

In our work together, we:

  • Can schedule regular, consistent times to meet so we can make progress faster
  • Might figure out "homework" assignments for you to do in between our sessions
  • Will discuss outside support and resources to supplement the work we're doing in therapy
  • Partner together as a team
