My Approach to Helping
I believe in the individual?s ability to achieve growth and change. However, sometimes people need assistance to facilitate this process. In my practice, I work to create a warm and supportive therapeutic relationship.
Through this relationship, I encourage positive change, guiding families, individuals, and couples into deeper awareness of their relationships and themselves. Bringing both the present and past into the room allows clients to identify significant patterns that affect their careers, relationships, and emotional and physical well-being.
To nurture trust and co-create treatment goals, I work in a collaborative spirit. I offer you experience and education, but you and you alone are the expert on your own life. I have worked with couples and individuals from a diverse array of cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and am comfortable working with all sexual orientations, gender identities, and relationship styles (polyamorous, monogamous, open relationships, etc.) I help my clients manage anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, grief, trauma, abuse, gender and sexual identity issues, coming out, loneliness, stress at work, and life transitions.
