My Approach to Helping

My goal as a therapist is to develop a safe and respectful relationship with my clients. This can serve as a secure base from which distressing thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns can be explored, understood, and changed.

My style is active and direct, compassionate and attuned, and authentic and humorous (even irreverent). I focus on seeing the whole person in front of me – the multiple identities and systemic forces that influence their struggles.

I balance empathy with challenge – listening closely and asking many questions to make sure I understand the issues at hand, then gently pushing clients to confront obstacles to change and to accept certain realities. I motivate my clients to do work outside of session, so that they can practice and master the strategies we discuss.

More Info About My Practice

I am a therapist at Octave, a modern behavioral health practice that supports your emotional well-being through a broad range of services. At Octave, we start with an initial consultation with a Care Navigator, then partner with you to develop personalized plans that best suit your needs. Learn more at www.findoctave.com
