Nice to meet you. I know this therapy thing can be daunting. And awkward. My intent, is to create a comfortable, kind space for you to explore your thoughts.
I am, absolutely, not here to judge you. There is a difference between judging and making an assessment. The first is an opinion. The second is clincal. I'm here to help you move forward with some solid life skills in your pocket.
I am, admittedly, a science nerd. I do research for fun and incorporate this into my own life as well as my work. I believe in the strength of our mind and it's ability to heal and be resiliant. Even the most difficult moments are powerful, and it humbles me to be part of that process.
This is my second career. I started in Adverstising on the Saturn Car account & finished at Nike, building Niketowns. I had my first baby and was passionate about researching the developing brain. Slowly, I began to connect science and the art of therapy. While raising two little people, I went back to grad school. I have now been in practice for 10+ years and I still love my job, every day.
