You are Not Alone
Asking for help is courageous
Virtual therapy sessions can help you to make sense of what you are experiencing and encourage you to change negative patterns that are keeping you from finding the joy in life that you deserve.
I want to hear your unique story
I find each person’s life journey to be unique, fascinating, and complex. Therapy begins with listening, understanding, and empathy. Building trust provides a safe environment so you can talk about your desires and needs.
The first step is to understand your goals. We look at the parts of your life or relationship that are getting in the way of reaching your goals. Understanding yourself is where change begins, and I will join you on that journey. I partner with you as a curious companion to explore new ways of living.
I provide virtual psychotherapy services to individuals, couples, and families. I am empathetic and non-judgmental, yet direct and insightful.
I offer services regardless of your religion, race, gender, nationality, history, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, or ethnicity. I also offer spiritual discernment counseling for those clients who are seeking help from this perspective.
The name of my practice reflects a desire to encourage every client to move in more positive directions. Emotivate Counseling’s name was derived from the words.
Virtual Therapy is Effective
Numerous research studies published in reputable psychotherapy journals have concluded that virtual therapy with a licensed therapist is just as effective as traditional in-office therapy.
