My goal is to help you create the change you need in your lived experience. Therapy is about creating a strong working relationship and I want to get to know you, and help you know yourself more deeply and compassionately.
I have worked with clients in severe emotional distress, and also with clients who just feel a need to "find a new path forward". Many of my clients are survivors of trauma, dealing with depression, anxiety, and relationship issues, or grief.
Heal the wounds from past relationships and learn to genuinely love, accept, and assert yourself. We will develop goals, track progress, work through challenges, and celebrate successes.
I use a client-centered and eclectic approach, meaning that I respect and take into consideration my client's individual needs, values, and beliefs, and I draw from a variety of evidenced-based therapeutic practices that best fit the situation.
set goals that matter to you, we will challenge thoughts, feelings, and actions that no longer support your goals, and ultimately learn new skills and tools that can support more positive experiences & life satisfaction.
My approach is solution-focused, using your own unique strengths & resources to get you to where you want to be. I emphasize goal-setting in our work so that you can see progress & get back to your life, potentially shortening your time in therapy.
Get to know your presenting issues, where they come from, how they serve (and don't really serve) you, and find a path forward. We will also understand your feelings and how you can cope with them in the moment.
I am actively committed to helping clients learn more about themselves. I don’t just sit and listen. I talk and ask thought-provoking questions. I offer new perspectives while also offering time to reflect together.
Moving through a painful transition? Want to make changes in your life? Need to figure out where to go from here and how to get there? I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story, heal and grow.
We'll build a counseling experience unique as you- we can blend what works best for what you need in our time together. Each time we meet is a new opportunity for healing and growth. Trauma informed approach - no problem is too big or small.
