My Approach to Helping
My style is down-to-earth, direct, and personal. This type of therapy aims to change both our outward struggles and behaviors that can seem baffling and distressing while understanding the issues that underlie them. These deeper forces - hidden from view and rooted in our past and early relationships - can result in the greatest difficulty, and cause us to feel stuck, confused, empty, or out of control. Having the involvement and perspective of another person can help alleviate pain, shift old patterns, recover from difficulties, and lead to lasting change. My clients describe me as warm, intuitive, and open-minded. I welcome your questions about psychotherapy and about how I work.
More Info About My Practice
In my approach to therapeutic work I prefer to utilize a mix of therapeutic styles that focus on understanding the story of you, and then helping you to develop your strength and tools to rewrite your own narrative. I strive to provide a down to earth and collaborative therapeutic relationship, working from the belief that every person has an inner strength waiting to be realized.
Making the decision to start therapy is a brave and powerful step to take at times when you are feeling vulnerable, experiencing emotional pain, or facing a difficult transition. As a therapist, my goal is to provide you with a safe and understanding space to support you through your challenges. I offer sensitivity and encouragement to help you identify your strengths and understand self-defeating patterns.
