Young adulthood brings with it a unique set of challenges that may inspire growth and resiliency if approached in a healthy, informed way. During this phase of life, we transition from student to professional and our expectations of ourselves may also transition.
Relationships evolve, careers begin and grow and along the way we are developing into the adult we want to be. Often during this time of change we may lose sight of our values which can make this navigation more challenging.
I am here to provide guidance and help you explore your values and make goals to live the rich, fulfilling life you want to live, regardless of life circumstances including: anxiety, depression, loss of someone or something important, work and relationship challenges, ADHD, thoughts of suicide, struggling to overcome set-backs and many others.
My approach to therapy is a collaborative one in which you are the driver. Together we will identify your unique challenges and create goals for therapy to help you become more resilient and able to thrive in life rather than just get by. A positive therapeutic relationship is important to this process and one that I strive to build through respect, trust, communication and collaboration with you.
During our first meeting, we will talk about your reason(s) for seeking therapy. I will ask about your family, medical, social, work, school, and (if any prior) treatment histories. Next, we will decide on goals for therapy and frequency of sessions. Finally, if I find it may be helpful, I will ask you to sign a release of information form for each person you identify as important to your treatment. This will allow me to communicate with the person(s) you identify regarding information relevant to your care.
Following the first meeting, we will continue to get to know one another and work toward achieving your goals. Along the way we may find they need to be changed or another goal may arise. Therapy is a process and yours is unique.
Meeting times are available Monday-Friday both day and evening hours and last 50 minutes.
What we talk about in our sessions stays between you and me. There are times, however, when talking with others may be helpful to make sure you have more support. This is why I have you sign a release of information form for each person you agree to let me talk with. I will always let you know if I plan to talk with someone you have given me permission to talk with and you will know what I will be sharing with them. If at any time you decide you would no longer like me to communicate with an identified person(s), I will honor your request.
