My Approach to Helping
"I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship." -Brene Brown
I believe deciding to seek therapy and make the first appointment requires a huge amount of bravery. I emphasize this during the first session to assist you in seeing how much strength you already possess for making this first step. Knowing where to begin during therapy can sometimes feel like an impossible task. During our first session, we will spend this time getting to know each other at a pace that feels comfortable for you. Being vulnerable and sharing yourself with another human being can be a scary feeling, so I am here with you every step of the way.
In the landscape of COVID-19, this has brought on an increase in therapy sessions taking place in the telehealth format. I believe that while this has been a challenging transition at times, it has also created an opportunity to make therapy more accessible for more individuals. Within these changes, my specializations have been able to narrow as I have found interest in assisting individuals with processing major life transitions and changes. Life is full of changes, but this does not mean we have to approach these on our own.
