How can I help you improve your experience in life?
Most clients come in experiencing problems in one or more of the following areas: low self-esteem, trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, addictions/compulsions, relationship difficulties, creative blocks, or going through challenging life transitions. You may experience emotional challenges, such as numbness, emotional flooding, feelings of fraudulence, worthlessness or emptiness, internal and/or external chaos, or generally feeling stuck. The common denominator is that you are here because you are hurting.
As your therapist I work to co-create with you a relationship in which you will feel safe, respected, supported, stimulated, challenged, and deeply understood as a whole person in light of your life experiences. I will use my understanding of you and your process to help harmonize your relationship to yourself. From this place of greater compassion and awareness, a relaxed confidence settles in, relationships deepen, and personal potential blossoms in ways you may find surprising. Peace and security are drawn inward, making them states that travel with you going forward in life.
While my education and training are indispensable, what equips me to help most is my personal experience of working through my own challenges in a profound way. This means I will never presume to walk you through territory I have not traversed myself. I've developed a powerful compass, which has allowed me the honor of guiding many others though their processes of healing and evolution.
What sets me apart from other therapists?
First, I am very genuine, connective, active, compassionate, non-judgmental, human and personable with my clients. I do not check my sense of humor at the door. My professionalism shows in the effectiveness of my work, not my pinstriped suit, mouthful of jargon or bagful of tricks. Being authentic helps my clients to relax and be more fully themselves, which allows our work to be powerful and effective.
Working with me leads to feeling solidly like you have someone who knows you, understands you, connects with you and is dedicated to helping you create the experience you want to have in life. I have extensive education, experience and training, as well as an unusually wide breadth of life experience, and am therefore able to have an in-depth understanding of many experiences you might think you could never share or relate with anyone about.
Most importantly, I remain actively engaged in my own personal work in order to bring a level of deep, ongoing personal experience you won't find with many therapists. I cannot emphasize enough how vital this is to the effectiveness of a psychotherapist... we learn the most and become better able to help others heal through our own work and healing. Thus the maxim, "healer, heal thyself."
