A Note From Bridget

I decided to become a therapist because I wholeheartedly believe in the healing power of this work, and I wholeheartedly believe that we are all worthy of a safe and non-judgmental space to explore our stories, to write new chapters, and to find ways to connect to a life that brings us meaning, fulfillment, and joy. I like to think of therapy as a “recovering to” and not just as a “recovering from.”

I would describe my therapeutic style as warm, compassionate, and hopeful. In my free time, I love hanging out with my two children, my husband, and our dog. I also enjoy taking quiet walks by the lake, laughing with friends, listening to podcasts, and watching documentaries.
