My Approach to Helping
Healing can take many forms with therapy being one of them. Through experiencing support, and being seen and understood by another can help us cultivate care and compassion for ourselves in ways that our everyday lives often do not create space for. In addition, having courageous conversations with a therapist (and therefore yourself) sparks insight and promotes change. It is an honor and privilege for me to guide and support clients on their journeys of self-discovery, healing, and growth.
More Info About My Practice
Using evidence-based practices, my work integrates the clinical with the restorative. I am trained in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy, Relational work, Somatics, as well as biofeedback. Through these modalities, thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and processes are identified, understood, and refocused as needed. The therapeutic relationship creates a space to address interpersonal needs, as well as learn new ways to be in a relationship with oneself and others.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Anxiety, depression, stress management, relationship strain, attachment concerns, integrating the mind, heart and body using somatic and mindfulness techniques.
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
Like any relationship, it's important for the therapeutic relationship to be a good fit. The alliance is foundational for you to feel safe, cared for, and empowered. I encourage people seeking therapeutic services to initially meet with more than one provider in order to find out the best fit for them, including style and technique, location, and fee. Although feeling comfortable with your therapist is important, growth and healing also call for a level of finding one's edge in the room. The right client-therapist alliance will create an environment through which there is simultaneous care, along with discovery occurring to best support your goals.
