My Approach to Helping
When I sit down with someone in a session, my goal is to meet them where they are, wherever that may be. I like to remind clients that healing is never linear, and often we take detours or pit stops; we take steps forward and backwards. The important thing I like to focus on is self-acceptance and validation; taking the step to ask for help on you’re journey of healing is often the most difficult, but most rewarding step. I would be honored to be on that journey with you. I have experience working with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, family and relationships, trauma, communication, addiction, guilt and shame. Whatever obstacles you may face on your journey of wellness, I look forward to walking alongside you.
Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
It can be so hard to open up to a complete stranger, especially if you've had bad experiences in the past. My focus is to make you feel as comfortable as possible in my office, and take things are your own pace. You will never be obligated to share anything you aren't ready to, and I am always open to feedback on how I can best assist you in your healing journey.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Therapy is not a curse, nor a definite sign that you are weak or flawed. We cannot be perfect, nor at our best 247, and sometimes we need a little outside help from someone who doesn't know us, and therefore can give a clear unbiased opinion. Therapy does not need to last forever, contrary to popular belief; most times it is just an extra support system as you go through struggles and difficulties in life, and eventually, you will be back on your feet!
