My Approach to Helping
I am delighted that you have found my page in your search for help. Through my years in training and now as a licensed psychologist, I have seen time and again that it is not easy to decide to seek help and support. Whether you face or have experienced life-altering changes, social hardships, suffer from mental illness or are seeking to "upgrade" your life, you may have found that talking with someone else about your hopes, dreams, and fears can be so difficult.
I don't expect you to know exactly what is wrong, what you want or need to do to change, or where you are going. I have worked with individuals who have no history of therapy or are therapy "veterans." Many with whom I have worked have found that they have been stuck in repeated behavioral, cognitive and emotional cycles of self-defeat, often due to anxiety, depression or trauma. Although they may have been surviving, they were not thriving. I don't believe that being 100% healthy is a requirement to be successful in life, however, you have a unique opportunity to make change in your life. Part of the journey of psychotherapy is bringing light to those areas in life that are darkest, and through sharing in this, change, growth and healing can occur.
