I believe that most people come to therapy with the desire--whether spoken or unspoken--to connect with someone on a deep level, to experience genuine acceptance and support, and to meet the challenge of healing what is broken in themselves. My approach to therapy is based on the unshakeable belief that we are all capable of change and growth. It is also informed by the concepts of mindfulness and eastern philosophy: This moment is all we've got. Our histories and futures are distractions from the full experience of living in the present. Suffering comes from our inability to let go of the past and our belief that worrying about the future will change its outcome for the better. It also comes from our thoughts and beliefs, beginning very early in our lives, and how easily we accept what others say to and about us as fact. Helping people identify their core beliefs and automatic thoughts is a powerful tool that can lead to lasting change. And the good news is that change is possible for anyone who is ready to try something different. It's a privilege for me to guide and encourage others as they move toward a more profound sense of personal peace and wholeness.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Being a therapist has made it possible for me to unify my desire to help others with a strong sense of intellectual curiosity, intuitive insight, and creative thinking. As a therapist I am able to tap into my strongest abilities and talents to help my patients in their healing processes. What I love the most about being a therapist, however, is the privilege of being a positive and healing presence in my patients' lives. I find my work deeply satisfying and fulfilling.

I am passionate about mental health and psychotherapy for a number of reasons, but the most significant reason is my own experience with depression, and the challenges it has presented in my life over the years. The compassion I feel for my patients is grounded in my own understanding of what it is like to struggle with a serious mental health issue. I was also a strong proponent of therapy long before I decided I wanted to be a therapist. My own experiences with therapy taught me that it works, and has made it easier for me to convince patients who are unsure about continuing with their treatment.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Many people mistakenly believe that participating in therapy reflects some sort of character flaw, weakness, or psychological instability. Nothing could be further from the truth. When a patient shares her suffering and hurt with me--whether due to past abuse, trauma, losses, fears, etc.--I am witnessing an act of tremendous courage. Our culture of "sucking it up" and not admitting our vulnerabilities to others has made it difficult for us be honest with ourselves and others, to be genuine and real in our relationships, and to accept our flaws and mistakes. We are all imperfect, but must do the best we can, regardless. To counter this social stigma, I clearly acknowledge my patients' courage in seeking my help, and their willingness to squarely face and work on the obstacles and hurts in their lives. When I encounter this attitude about psychotherapy among acquaintances and people I don't know, I also make a point of tactfully and firmly addressing these misconceptions.
