My Approach to Helping
Hi there! My therapeutic approach is all about you, the client. My goal is to make therapy a warm and safe space to help you make the changes you wish to make. I am flexible and will use different types of therapy depending on your needs and preferences. I often use a blend of client-centered, relational, cognitive-behavioral, and psychodynamic therapies. I also often conceptualize using attachment and family systems theory. We will decide at the beginning of our work what will feel like the best fit for you.
I love to work with both individuals and couples. I offer support when dealing with a wide range of life challenges and problems. A few of them are: relationship and family problems, low self-esteem, identity confusion, loss, struggles with body image, unhealthy substance use, anxiety, depression, and trauma. Often it is not just one specific thing that is bothering you, sometimes it's many. Or, sometimes it is hard to know exactly what is wrong. My job is to help you to find understanding and feel better, either way.
My approach is easy-going, non-judgmental, and supportive. I view our therapeutic relationship as us working together as a team. Please reach out if this sounds like a good fit for you.
