My Approach to Helping
If you're considering therapy, you're taking an active, courageous step toward a better life. This might be hard to believe right now, when you may not be feeling so well about things, but that's how a good therapist views your call for help--as evidence of your strength and inner wisdom.
You could be thinking about therapy for a variety of reasons: painful feelings that overwhelm you or persist, such as emptiness, dissatisfaction, frustration, or anger; relationship difficulties; challenging life transitions or situations; problematic or self-harming behaviors; aches and pains that don't resolve and can't be explained; or concerns about your image, identity, or purpose. These--and more--are the kinds of issues I've helped people with.
The people I've worked with have found me approachable and knowledgeable. They've described me as empowering, encouraging, and compassionate. I meet you where you're at, focus on your goals, celebrate your progress, learn from your feedback, and treat you with respect and dignity.
I work as a therapist because I'm fascinated by human nature, and I deeply believe in our capacity for growth and change. My appreciation for human strength and potential grows each time I meet someone like you, taking that first bold step toward a better life.
