If I could narrow therapy down to two themes, it would be:
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Eating Disorders Specialist passionate about working with teenagers and young adults with eating disorders and co-occurring disorders like anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, and relationship issues.
I’m the middle child of a family of five and have always been known to do my own thing. When I’m not in my therapy chair, you’ll find me in one of six places: spending time soaking up the sun, cuddled up on my couch watching a movie, snuggling with my precious pup, taking a bubble bath while jamming out to NSYNC, trying new restaurants with my girls, or planning for my next trip!
Give yourself space. Give yourself time.
I wholeheartedly believe the therapy process is designed to help people to adapt and grow to be their best selves in the season that they’re in. Life, work, and even the people we love can be challenging at times, and my hope is that each of my clients leaves therapy knowing that life will be imperfect and chaotic at times, but they are capable, resilient, and brave for taking on each day as if it was on purpose. Becoming aware of who we are, our strengths, limitations, values, and motivations helps us live with intention and purpose. Therapy isn’t about having it all figured out- it’s about knowing that there’s a way to navigate through life’s most difficult days as well as being wholly present and enjoying to the fullest it’s most glorious days.
This is where the growth happens! I often meet with clients weekly for 45 minute follow up sessions where we can explore the pieces of life that feel more important to focus on and work on navigating difficult situations in a way that aligns with who you are as a person and what matters most to you.
The intake appointment is typically 50-60 minutes, and is an opportunity for me to get to know who you are, what life experiences and interests have helped to shape you, and what you’re looking to work through in therapy. It’s also an opportunity to see if you feel like we’re a good fit!
Going to therapy can be a hard, vulnerable thing to do. Especially when you're feeling overwhelmed and are beating yourself up for making mistakes.
Our work together isn't going to be me having all the answers, but rather helping you find a way to understand and be nonjudgemental about your emotions and guide you on finding a way to exist in this world with peace and grace and challenge the perfectionism.
The cost will be $175 for a 60 minute intake and $160 for 45 minute follow ups.
While I don’t take insurance, individualized Superbills (to file for out of network reimbursement) will be sent out to each client monthly.
Each client is different, and each therapy journey will reflect that. One factor that does impact time in therapy is engagement in the process- exploring options today is the first step! Therapy is intended to be temporary because the goal is to teach each client tools that will last forever, while helping to build resilience along the way.
Like anything in life, there is no guarantee! However, there is a huge amount of research that shows that therapy is effective in helping us understand ourselves, our emotions, and ways to handle life stress.
Not a problem! Not every client is a fit for every therapist, and one of the most important factors is the therapeutic alliance. If you don’t feel a connection, I’d be happy to provide referrals for other providers in the community.
