I believe we all are inherently good people who face struggles in life that challenge our understanding of ourselves and others. In these moments, we have the choice to cling to rigid, limiting, outdated, or unfair thoughts about ourselves and others, or we can become resilient through our capacity to learn new ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving in our lives that align with our goodness and goals. You can do it, and my job is to help you on that journey!
I have a dual master’s degree in social work and marriage and family therapy. I also have over 9 years of experience helping individuals and families. To be your therapist is a privilege, and I look forward to helping you accomplish your therapeutic goals.

What Is Individual Therapy?
Individual therapy involves one person meeting with a trained and licensed mental health professional and talking about what is bothering them. It provides a safe and trusting environment for people to express their feelings or beliefs, process influential or painful memories, gain understanding about their emotional world, themselves and how they interact with others, identify and change unhelpful ingrained ways of thinking or behaviors, and generally, move toward desired goals.
Some people seek therapy for help with specific issues such as anxiety, grief, interpersonal difficulties, work life balance, adjusting to a life transition, trauma, or substance use. Others want to improve themselves by changing their behaviors and gaining more insight into their emotions, motives, and relationships. Some people are ready to finally work through some of those "issues" they have been carrying around.
What Happens In Individual Therapy?
Individual therapy and counseling can encompass talking about your current struggles, processing and working through painful memories, teaching people specific methods to cope with stressful situations and strong emotions, identifying unhelpful ways of thinking, and understanding and accepting existential quandaries. Therapists can be quiet, letting the client guide the conversation and occasionally providing insight or direction. At other times therapists can be more active and direct by leading the client in an experiential or cognitive exercise.
It can be hard to describe what individual therapy is like because each therapy is unique. At the core of every effective psychotherapy is the connection between the client and therapist. Numerous studies have shown that the strength of the therapeutic relationship is the most important factor for change. This does not mean that you have to “like” your therapist, but it is essential that you trust your therapist and can work well with them.
There are many different types of individual therapy. The client’s needs and the expertise of the therapist will determine which methodology will be used. We have therapists and psychologists who are trained in a variety of therapeutic modalities such as Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, Existential Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Our intake coordinator, and our expert clinicians will work with you to form an individualized approach based on your needs.
