I believe we all have the capacity to grow, change and heal. I will work with you to help you cope with depression and anxiety, relationship issues, shame, loss, trauma or addiction. I value the relationship built in therapy and the space it provides to start with what is going well and explore difficulties from there. You can expect to feel heard, valued, encouraged and challenged to work toward your therapeutic goals. I incorporate humor and am direct in my communication. My specialty is in helping people work through their emotions, explore difficulties, address relationship stressors, and create safety for overwhelming pain. I have been working with those who have experienced trauma and life changes, and have a special interest in this work. I also have a deep respect and passion for social justice issues.
To expand and improve our care options for clients, ACP offers Telehealth (phone or video) appointments. Telehealth uses phone or video conferencing to connect you with highly qualified and experienced providers in real-time from the comfort and convenience of your own home or office. Before your telehealth appointment, you will receive details for how you will connect with your provider. If you will be connecting via phone, the provider will plan to call you at your scheduled appointment time. Please be ready to take the call and also check that your phone allows calls from blocked numbers (accessible within your phone settings). If you will be connecting via video conference, your provider will email you an invite to join the appointment. Please call our office to learn more about ACP’s telehealth services and to schedule an appointment.
