I believe psychotherapy is a journey of self-discovery, problem solving and emotional recovery. I help my clients to grow and heal from issues with depression, anxiety, loss, relationship issues and family adjustments. I support my clients with improving social and emotionl functioning and increasing interpersonal skills while developing positive and solution-focused goals for creating a more fullfilling and healthy lifestyle. If you are exploring ways to achieve a more balanced way of managing the everyday stressors and challenges in life, the services I provide may benefit you.

Our experience, although short was impactful. I love Dr. Handy's warm spirit, it's comforting and feels like warm apple pie on a cold winter day.
Dr. Handy is an excellent therapist and I am enjoying our sessions together.
Dr. Handy is patient and allows me to express my concerns fully with an open mind. She asks questions to know my values and then she helps me focus on tomorrow so I don’t get bogged down with just the worried of today. She helps me out the world in perspective.
She is encouraging and allows me to talk, which is not always easy on my part. However, it helps to self-evaluate with the help of a professional.
Dr. Handy is wonderful. Talking with her is like talking to a long distance friend.
I instantly felt comfortable with her! I felt like she heard me and was familiar with the experiences that I have been encountering. So far everything is going well! This is my first time using an online platform and the experience has been awesome!
Wonderful, attentive, compassionate. Highly recommend.
She's very cute and helpful. I like talking to her and she has a beautiful smile. Thank you for everything :)
