As a therapist, I create a warm, safe, nonjudgmental environment for people to be able to open up and share their feelings and make sense of what is troubling them. I strive to empower people and help them realize the strength and potential they possess. My experience has prepared me well to be able to interact and connect with a wide variety of individuals from diverse backgrounds. I have 21 years experience working in the mental health field, 18 years of which as a therapist. I have a great deal of experience focusing on areas like relationship issues, parenting, communication skills, mood management, and conflict resolution. In my practice, I utilize a number of theoretical orientations and therapy styles, as I find that different techniques work with different people. I primarily draw from humanistic, positive psychology, cognitive behavioral, and solutions focused theories. My approach to therapy is meeting the client where they're at, I follow your lead. I begin by asking questions to get a sense of what kinds of things you're struggling with, and see if we can figure out a direction we want to move in. We go at a pace that you're comfortable with. Sometimes just having someone to talk with to help you identify and process your feelings can provide some relief, especially if there's a lot of stuff bottled up. Then we can work toward identifying areas of your life that you're not satisfied with, and develop some basic goals to drive our work together.

I didn’t realize how helpful therapy would be for me, until I started working with Mimi. I’ve been through several therapists, all which I haven’t been a good match with. Mimi listens with empathy and has such great insight as to where my feelings and emotions may be coming from. I feel like I’m working through a lot of my trauma and healing daily. I appreciate having Mimi as my therapist.

Mimi has been an awesome therapist for me the past half year. I started out with questions about my career path, relationship with my parents and how to get out there socially more. I ended our time having tools in all of those areas and more. Mimi also was a great support through some very tough times having to do with the health of loved ones. I highly recommend Mimi for anyone interested in having a great support for whatever life challenges you may be facing. Thank you, Mimi!
