As a therapist, I'm very humanistic. I believe your treatment should be guided by you. I encourage you to have compassion for yourself as you learn to recognize that you are not your thoughts. When I'm not doing therapy, I enjoy acrylic painting. I love doing 'dirty pours,' where you pour a bunch of paints together on a canvas, and a piece begins to take the shape of its very own unique, individual self.

In therapy, It's important to be patient with yourself. The goal is progress, not perfection. As a team, we'll get there. You'll learn to become comfortable sitting inside of your feelings, and learning how to cope with your fears in a new way.

Felt like my therapist really understood my symptoms!


Nov 04, 2022

She wanted me to ask a 6 year old with some social anxiety if she was suicidal. This is unacceptable. She wanted me to ask her before every session too. When I questioned her about this, she did NOT like it and ended the session 2 minutes early with me and she said that if she doesn’t do that for every session she will lose her license. So obviously it’s about her and not the mental health of children. Worst therapist I have ever encountered.

I had an educational appointment to help a close friend who was recently diagnosed with OCD. After reading a lot about OCD, I wasn't sure how to handle some situations. My therapist helped me clarify ways I can help my friend.

I feel like it was a good fit for me. I like how she encouraged me tell her as much as possible so it was not like an interview. And when I wanted it to be like an interview she was happy to switch her style to accommodate me.
