My Approach to Helping

My family therapist background equips me to view problems through the lens of relationships. That includes relationships between people, within social systems, or the varied aspects of a single person. I use a blend of emotional processing, psychoeducation, and experiential activities to help you improve your relationships and better understand that which keeps you from making lasting change.

Because context plays such a large role in the work that I do, I will seek to understand your concerns within their various relational networks and will ask you to look for similar connections.

More Info About My Practice

I think the relationship between the therapist and client is the most important part of the therapeutic process. I believe in creating relationships rooted in compassion, openness, and trust. This relationship can be profoundly healing. This is why I work to create an environment of unconditional acceptance, while still challenging my clients to be and do better.

My relationships with my clients are special to me. I work to help every child view themselves as caring, capable, contributing members of society. I see each client as the expert on their own life. I see myself as a collaborator for growth, change, and healing.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

This is one of my favorite questions to answer when people ask me about my studies or my profession. There are many reasons why I love being a therapist but I would say that foremost among them is the relationships that I am able to build with such a wide array of different people. I love bearing witness to the beautiful process that is therapy; having the privilege first-hand to see people express themselves, experience emotions, and process information in new and different ways.
As someone who enjoys learning about many different topics, I also love how my profession consistently exposes me to new ideas, backgrounds, experiences, and interests. I learn countless things from the clients with whom I work and feel a deep sense of gratitude for the trust that they place in me and the ways in which they enrich my own life.
