What services do you provide?
I provide a variety of services, including individual therapy, family therapy, and relationship therapy. I work with adolescents as well as adults.
How do you incorporate nature into your work?
Being outside and in natural spaces helps calm the mind and reduce feelings of depression and anxiety. In our fast-paced world filled with technology and endless demands, making time to reconnect with the natural world is ever-important. I support folks in rebuilding their relationship with the outdoors and find ways to create daily connections to nature, such as tending for a plant, going for a walk outside, or even sitting by a window.
How long will I be in therapy?
Many factors can determine how long a person can benefit from therapy, but ultimately you have the choice to decide how long you are in therapy and when you are done. For some folks, that means a couple weeks, and for others it could mean a year or more.
