I am dedicated to supporting individuals throughout their therapeutic experience, fostering awareness and change. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and solution based therapy. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, trauma, abuse and ADHD. An individualized eclectic approach is taken to help the client define goals and objectives. I offer a therapeutic relationship that is comfortable, warm, and open to discussing all issues. Through support, understanding and active listening we explore life issues together, so clients may have a better ability to enjoy life and feel understood.My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.I look forward to working with you.

I've been seeing Helen for several months now. She has changed my life. She responds and reacts to all of my issues on a regular basis, reading my millions of journal entries and providing feedback on all of it. She is an amazing woman and an extraordinary therapist. The fact that she accomplishes so much through the internet and the chatting option is even more impressive. I love Helen and recommend her completely. She's the best therapist I've ever had.

Helen is not only one of the kindest and honest souls I've ever met, she's particularly skilled at identifying the roots of my issues. Shes worked diligently on practical solutions/tools for me to manage my behavior and overall be much more emotionally aware.

As my therapist, she always makes me feel welcomed and safe. I know I can confide in her without feeling judged or like I'm walking on egg shells.

In a short time, I've been able to make significant progress with her as my therapist.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank Betterhelp and Helen individually for showing me the true benefits of therapy.

It has only made my life better since I started.
