How Psychotherapy Can Help
Entering into a psychotherapeutic relationship is a wonderful way to declare ownership over your unique experience. Through this collaborative, helping relationship, you will be opened up to new perspectives surrounding your struggles, learn to embrace a natural reflex for creative problem-solving, and engage in meaningful conversations towards transformation and wellbeing. While an important part of psychotherapy is to feel heard, valued, and understood by your therapist, it is also a wonderful way to uncover previously unnoticed or undervalued gifts and strengths.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
I'm humanistic at heart. I believe people are inherently good and equipped with the creative capacity to lead healthful and fulfilling lives. With this in mind, I believe psychotherapy's purpose is to create a safe and open-minded atmosphere where people can explore their struggles, process important feelings and emotions, discover previously unnoticed strengths or gifts, and generate clarity and meaning towards renewal and hope. Strongly influenced by narrative therapy and its focus on a collaborative client-counselor relationship, I view individuals as active creators in finding solutions to their own challenges. Psychotherapy is your process!
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I love that I get to carefully witness, be a part of, and help guide important transformational life periods, where people can rise from a time of great strife and turmoil with a newfound hope and confidence in oneself. An example of this is the process of moving through adolescence into adulthood. While this journey can be quite tumultuous and painful at times, taking into consideration the wave of emotional, mental, physical, and environmental change at hand, it also has the potential to be one of the most beautiful and growth-enhancing life transitions.
My Guiding Ethical Principles
As a psychotherapist with a deep respect for any adult, child, or adolescent who is courageous enough to enter into the unfamiliar therapeutic process, I am guided by the ethical principle to foster a safe, warm, and non-judgmental environment. I carry with me a strong faith in and dedication to the process of change.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
For much of my adolescence and early adulthood I struggled to find confidence. For example, I felt out of place for having a more spacial and emotional type of intelligence over the more widely accepted verbal or mathematical (I could never take a standardized test very well!). This feeling of being different was a great source of shame for me and I suffered from feelings of low self-worth. And while I'd like to say that now, as a therapist, I am completely "healed," it is actually not the truth. My negative feelings still surface from time to time, but I now recognize them as important reminders of my own humanity, my need to have compassion for my clients, to stay away from fear and judgment, and to move more towards curiosity and understanding. My struggle to find self-confidence is in fact what made me a better therapist. I could not do this work without having had that experience.
