Together we will explore your relational patterns, any past trauma that you want to process, your family of origin as it relates to your healing, and anything else where you want to see growth.
Therapy is not a one size fits all, so I tailor what therapy looks like depending on the needs of my client. The time and space is for you and it's important you feel agency and connection during sessions.
explore the past, accept the present, and identify empowering shifts in beliefs and actionable steps to repurpose previous thoughts, expectations that improve self-image, confidence, and hope for the future.
I am empathetic and understanding that life means adapting to life transitions, cultivating identity and purpose, and striving to connect within family, peer, and community systems.
We will collaborate to identify your main goals for our time together, and periodically thereafter we'll check in to celebrate progress and identify any challenges or roadblocks. We may also change or add new goals as we go along.
I blend diverse therapeutic methods, tailored to your unique journey. This may involve mindfulness, Eastern philosophy, reiki energy support, CBT, Gottman therapy, IFS, creative arts expression, and the principles of non-violent communication.
Initially, we'll get to know each other to determine if we're a good fit. From there, we can decide the best treatment approach to aid in your growth and development, and set a plan to provide therapy to best meet your needs.
My theoretical preference is eclectic, as I use bits and pieces from several forms of therapy (CBT, DBT, Reality Therapy, and Experiential Therapy). I tailor my approach to fit the attitudes, goals, and preferences of those I serve.
We will together move towards, hope, healing, connection, meaning, and purpose.
I use a faith integrative approach to counseling from a Christian worldview. There is a deep connection between our spiritual well-being and mental/emotional health. Everyone is created in the image of God to live a life of healing and wholeness.
