The goal is a more fulfilling, satisfying way of living. It's to improve your existing relationships and help you cultivate new, rewarding relationships. It's to help you find peace and contentment with life. It's to give you tools to combat anxiety, worry, depression, and loneliness.
There's no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. Every person who sits on the therapy couch has experienced a unique life and requires an approach tailored to their circumstances. I used evidence-based therapies as a framework for treating the individual experience.
More important than the method, though, is the relationship. A supportive, warm, empathetic relationship with a counselor can truly change one's life. This relationship allows me to provide feedback that friends and family are too close to see.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Therapy is as much an art as it is a science.
Researchers have spent millions of dollars on developing theories, methods, and interventions, which I use to guide my work. But there's something about two people sitting, just being together, that's healing and therapeutic. It's important to have a witness to your story. Someone to confirm how you feel. Hear your pain.
Psychotherapy can provide the tools to challenge negative thinking patterns, break bad habits, and change destructive life patterns. Your mental health and well-being is worth the investment.
My Role as a Therapist
Simply put, my job is to help you find a meaningful, purposeful way of living through conversation.
My job isn't to tell you exactly what you need to do or give even to give you advice. It's to help you make the best decisions for yourself. I'm here as a witness to your story, your experience, your struggles and triumphs. The journey won't always be easy, as it's my job to provide feedback and challenge ways of thinking, emotions, and behaviors.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
Therapists are people too. I've struggled with anxiety and worry. I've been lonely. I've avoided areas of my life until they imploded, made poor decisions, allowed my relationships to struggle and suffer, and generally been unhappy.
These struggles make me a better therapist. I refer back to these experiences when working with clients to remember the emotional pain I felt. At times, sharing my personal experience has helped clients know that I understand where they're coming from.
