You can expect, from the first point of contact, a caring and supportive environment. I can ensure you that your experience will be tailored to your individual needs and that you can begin your process of healing as soon as possible. I promise to be objective, compassionate, and sensitive to your concerns. During our time together, you will be able to express your thoughts in a supportive, non judgmental place. Sessions will typically last about 50 minutes and the number and frequency of sessions vary on a case-by-case basis from several times a week to once a month. Typically, clients will start with one or two sessions per week and as their concerns are alleviated, they may lessen the frequency of their sessions. This will all be discussed during our initial meeting. During this time, we can decide on a schedule you feel comfortable with.
For people who are new to counseling or are not quite sure what it is all about, just thinking about going to see a therapist can be scary. This may also be the case for seasoned clients seeking a new therapist as well. Generally, people think that going to counseling entails lying down on a couch (which some people like) and getting advice from someone. This is not the case. In therapy, we will work collaboratively to help you overcome any obstacles you may be facing and to start feeling better about your life. Topics of discussion may include anything from your experiences growing up as a child to an entire session focusing solely on an event that happened earlier in the week--it's really up to you! I am skilled in a wide variety of areas including anger management, couples counseling, sex therapy, and much more, please visit the services section to see how I can help you.

Feel free to contact me, so we may discuss your specific concerns and together we can begin to navigate through this difficult time.
