My Approach to Helping
Relationships are powerful. We show ourselves, and become ourselves, through our relationships with others. Different relationships bring out different parts of ourselves. Sometimes this can be troubling, especially if we feel that our different parts are in conflict. Your relationship with a psychotherapist should be one in which the different parts of yourself can be safely, gently drawn out, and allowed to meet and communicate with each other.
I seek to provide a safe space for collaborative exploration of your thoughts and feelings, including those that may have been pushed aside. By working together to give voice to your desires and fears, and develop non-judgmental awareness of your internal experiences, you can learn how to give yourself what you need and build resilience.
If you feel out of touch with your own life, if people say that you worry “too much,” if a particular event has taken away your sense of well-being, psychotherapy can be an excellent resource and activator for change. But it takes courage to recognize when your coping strategies are no longer working and to reach out for support. Whether you yearn for peace, love, authenticity, balance, or even if you do not know what is missing in your life, please contact me to learn more about how therapy can help you find it.
