About Dr. Freeman

About Dr. Freeman


"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf."
― Jon Kabat-Zinn

Welcome! It is no easy task to entrust your inner thoughts and experiences with a stranger—but I am committed to meeting you right where you are in your life.

I treat adolescents (14+) and adults in individual, family and group therapy. We can talk about the best format for your particular presenting issues.

In my work with clients, I encourage transparency, value-driven decision making, humor, self-compassion, and making room for your thoughts and feelings. We will collaboratively create a treatment plan that meets your individual goals and values. I will ask you to recognize and use your strengths, determine if your behaviors are aligned with your values, connect with your Self, and increase your psychological flexibility.

My particular clinical interests include women's and men's issues, anxiety, parenting, food allergies in both the individual and family context and more recently, anxiety surrounding COVID-19.

In our sessions, I'll encourage you to be transparent and flexible. You can expect the same of me. If I’m not genuine and adaptable, I can’t expect you to be either.

I love to laugh. A lot. While therapy can at times be difficult and outside of your comfort zone, that does not mean that it had to be all serious, all the time. Being able to laugh at our humanness together is one of the greatest healers.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

-Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
