Light-hearted, calm, accepting, non-judgmental, patient, easy-going, and with a sense of humor.
Something to know about my approach is:
I'm laid back and tend to be non-directive meaning I work with whatever the client desires to talk about in the appointment. However, if you like things to work on in-between sessions, by all means ask and I'll be happy to provide handouts, etc.
Together, we will:
Develop a treatment plan with goals that will help guide our sessions. I definitely want the client's input, as it's your session, your goals, your time, and I want to help support you as best as possible. You can discuss whatever is most relevant.
I specialize in working with people who:
Are interested to know themselves better, are motivated for improvement, and who are open to seeing things in a new light.
I became a therapist because:
I've experienced challenges early in life resulting in some undesirable symptoms & desire to help others understand ways of coping with challenges.
Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:
I have an office in downtown Yellow Springs, OH but since COVID I'm offering therapy online only. You'll likely meet my cat, Sala, in online sessions.
More about me and my practice:
I'm a proponent of self-care, kindness to self and others, use of boundaries, assertive communication, expressive writing/journaling, healthy choices, and physical and mental wellness.
