What type of clients do I work with?
I love, love, LOVE my job, but I am not the therapist for everyone. No therapist should be.
You are not one-size-fits-all.
You should have a therapist who "gets you."
You deserve a therapist who is highly trained in your issues and concerns.
Because of that, I only work with people who I feel I can offer my very best.
Therefore, I don't work with children, adolescents, young adults (up to age 23), couples, or families. All of my post-graduate training has only been in individual therapy with adults.
In addition, I am not equipped to treat individuals with addictions, personality disorders, or current eating disorders. I have not had extensive training in these very specialized areas.
It would be unfair and unethical for me to treat someone if it wasn't to the best of my ability.
I work with populations whose concerns are ones I have had extensive training in or have received counseling for myself.
I no longer make appointments with individuals who do not contact me directly for counseling. In the past, I have found that, if someone else set up the appointment, the individual usually wasn't ready to commit to therapy.
Before you schedule an appointment with me, I encourage you to browse through my website. See if what I am saying (and even the pictures I use) speaks to you.
Go with your gut. Do you feel like we would be a "good fit?"
I only want what is in your best interest. If after we meet, either one of us does not feel we are the best collaboration, I will be happy to refer you to someone more suitable to your needs.
I encourage you not to make a follow up appointment after our first session. Instead, I think you should take time to see how our interaction sits with you to make sure you feel right.
This is all about you. You need to feel safe and comfortable with your therapist.
If you think we should meet and see if we "click," then please send me a text or an email using the button below, or set up a 15-minute phone consultation. I would love to hear from you!
Wishing your sensitive soul all the best in your journey to wholeness!
