Individual Therapy begins with an Initial appointment to identify your areas of concern, discuss your wishes for yourself and your life and discern what feels important to you therapeutically. I will ask you questions about your history, community and life as a way of getting a sense of how your context has impacted your experiences.
If it feels like we would be a good fit, we will then plan to meet regularly at an agreed upon interval. Our meetings will be 50 minutes long. We will check in along the way about how our work together is feeling and make changes as needed.
Some clients find it helpful to remain in therapy indefinitely. Some hurts and traumas take an indefinite amount of time to heal. Some people find that ongoing therapy is a nourishing form of self-care. Other clients find that therapy is supportive for a season of life, and return when needed for a period of time.
If you would like to explore Individual Therapy as an option, please schedule a Free 15-minute Phone Consultation.
Group Therapy is a therapeutic modality that allows us the opportunity to receive support, feedback, reflection, healing and presence from a small group of peers, with the guidance of a facilitator. Group Therapy can be a form of community care; an intentional space to come together on a regular basis.
It is common to feel nervous about joining Group Therapy. Many of us yearn to be vulnerable and deeply connected to others, and at the same time feel fearful of sharing of ourselves and worry about how we will be perceived. The good news is that most of us come to group with at least some of these overlapping fears, so from the very beginning we are not alone in our experience.

Description: Losing a pet companion is heartbreaking. For many of us, our pets are our family members, best friends, and loyal company. They bring us daily joy, connection, care, and comfort. It can feel excruciating to endure their absence. Pet loss is often not fully acknowledged in our larger culture as a valid form of grief, which can often make us feel isolated and alone in our pain. We need a space where we are allowed to grieve the death of our beloved pet, celebrate their lives and what they mean to us, and be around others who can relate to our experience.
