My Approach to Helping
Maybe you don’t feel like yourself and need help finding a sense of balance in your life. Feeling dissatisfied in relationships, sadness, grief, or anxiety which interferes with your work, school, or social performance are typical reasons people enter therapy.
I have advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) which are effective to treat many mental health issues. I tend to weave mindfulness training in most interventions. Our work in therapy sessions is to increase your ability to cope with the stressors of daily life, identify your strengths, and improve your confidence tackling challenges.
My Role as a Therapist
My role is to help you identify internal resources you may have not considered before, such as resiliency and the ability to tolerate strong emotions, no matter how unpleasant they may feel. You are the writer of your own life story. I value being present during this process, especially for those who just need another human to listen to them without judgment.
My Guiding Ethical Principles
Your self-determination is of vital importance to me. I remain mindful that you are able to change your situation and it is my role as a therapist to help you develop that ability.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
The option of telehealth through video communication (similar to Skype but encrypted) has many benefits including reduced commuting and time cost. This is a great way to fit therapy into your busy schedule.
