Let me ask you two questions:
Who are you?
Why do you do what you do?
That's what psychotherapy is: a quiet hour to let you think and talk about yourself, and come to those answers. Just sitting down and telling your story to a stranger; someone who isn't connected to your daily life. Someone who is trained to be objective, yet still be on your side.
Our counseling experience is a partnership. I will not demand that you say or do anything that you don't want to. But I promise that I will help you as much as you'll let me.
Who I am, and why I do what I do
I earned a BS in Psychology from SUNY Oneonta, and a Master of Social Work (MSW) from SUNY Albany.
Most of my clients find me through an insurance or physician referral, friends who've been here, or online.
I've always liked listening to people's stories. Being able to listen and know how to offer help that can change people's lives for the better - that's an opportunity and blessing that I take very seriously.
