If you are looking for therapist right now, you most likely need help to ease suffering of some kind. You want to find the right person to help. You might be wondering if therapy can really work.

There are many ways to help people and many ways we can feel helped. As an experienced therapist, I believe there are two core components to any effective therapy experience.

The first component is a good fit between therapist and client.

Like it is in any relationship, we click with some people and not with others. In my experience, this chemistry is an important component to an effective therapy.

I think its a good idea for us to talk on the phone initially for a few minutes then to meet in person for an initial session to see if we might move forward.

I like to use the first 3 sessions as time to see if ongoing work together seems useful. We do this by talking about what the current problems are, what you want from therapy. You trust your gut and I trust mine. We go from there.

Secondly, the therapist practices in a way that is authentic to who they are as a person. I believe that therapy is most effective when the therapist works in a way that matches who they are as a person (not just using “learned techniques”). For me, Relational Depth Therapy reflects who I am and how I work.

Relational: I have always had a natural curiosity about what is happening inside of each person and how that informs what happens between people. The ways that we relate to to ourselves and to each other.

Depth: This refers to the layers of complex and sometimes conflicting feelings we all have inside and to the deep unconscious feelings/beliefs we are not fully aware of that may be getting in our way.

I use my natural curiosity, my strength in relatedness, along with my education and training to help you discover new ways to be in the world with ease and freedom.
