Many of my clients struggle with life transitions, relationship conflicts, self-esteem, or addiction; with any client, my initial intention is to help provide an immediate sense of relief from debilitating symptoms, and an authentic sense of hope. Let's be honest, life can feel complicated and overwhelming. So often I find that clients feel alone in their struggle, hopeless in the potential for improvement, or utter frustration in being unable to fix problems on their own. Sometimes it takes a trusting, collaborative, therapeutic relationship to help clients find their own strength to effect meaningful change.
My approach serves to help clients address the challenges associated with relationships, family life, transitions, parenting, anxiety, loneliness, depression, and communication. My approach is an eclectic, though grounded in emotion-focused, CBT, and psychodamic modalities. I also draw upon expressive and solution-focused techniques to improve confidence and coping skills. I help my clients identify long-standing behavior patterns that interfere with achieving their full potential.
Making lasting changes can feel overwhelming, and often it takes time getting to the bottom of why certain changes have been so hard to master in the past. Helping clients tease apart the confusion over what has been getting in the way of moving forward, can mean an otherwise intimidating change gets broken down into smaller, more digestible, and encouraging steps.
