My Approach to Helping

The power of caring curiosity to transform challenges into changes is truly a site to see. Working together we will bring this attention into everything we do in session and out in the world. Because mental health, and wellness, look different on everyone. Context is key! What looks “healthy” for one person may be a triggering waste of time for another.

The underlying factor to that felt sense of wellness is the capacity for flexible and compassionate engagement with your own thoughts, feelings, and actions. When you find yourself full of self-criticism, or feeling down, and are questioning whether to seek support, I believe this is your inner system letting you know that old patterns, which were learned at some point to protect you in your past, are not letting you move into your future whole and well.

More Info About My Practice

When working with me, we will slow down in an effort to make room for curiosity and compassion while exploring issues arising from anxiety, panic, stuckness, depression, along with experiences of loss and grief related to developmental, physical, or sexual trauma.

Anything getting in the way of you thriving will become the entry into your discovery and in partnering we will find those areas that have been challenging. We will transform them into opportunities for fresh and meaningful discoveries within yourself and your relationships.

My Role as a Therapist

My role as a therapist is to create attuned space. Space to look around with the kind of curiosity that transforms. I will guide us in each session to listen between the lines, collaborating with you on a process of reflection (on your feelings, your thoughts, choices and actions) that shifts areas getting in your way into opportunities to experience yourself more connected and more whole.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Finding the perfect psychotherapist for you, and your process is important to me not only because research shows that one of the most important factors contributing to transformation is a solid rapport between yourself and your therapist, but also because I believe in everyone getting the care they need.

The best way to feel out the potential for a grounded and comfortable rapport between us is by taking some time to talk about what is bringing you to therapy, what you are looking for in your therapist, and what you're hoping to work on.

If, after sharing your concerns, challenges, and goals with me, you feel good about our conversation we'll schedule a time to meet ongoingly on a weekly basis.
