My Approach to Helping

My goal is to provide a safe, respectful and individualized treatment in order to help my clients reach the outcomes they desire. Our time together will start in a safe and secure environment. I begin each session with an open mind where you can explore your thoughts, and feelings. Discovering emotions may help relieve pain and anguish. I look at our time together as a journey down a road that brings the conscious and unconscious to the surface so that we can work together to reduce anger, sadness, stress, anxiety and depression.

I offer a variety of therapeutic interventions. I do not offer a cookie cutter approach. I offer an individualized treatment plan for each personfamilycouple that I work with. Just a few techniques that I am trained in are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Attachment Therapy and Mind and Body Psychotherapy.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I chose to be a therapist because I believe that we are all more resilient than we give ourselves credit for. I have sat on the other side in a therapists office, and I recognize the strength it takes to walk through that door. I believe to fully understand what it is like to be in therapy, you first have to sit on the side of the client. My first desire to be a therapist came from my own childhood insecurities with my own adoption. It was at this time that I recognized the power of psychotherapy and how it created a space for feeling and healing. I strive everyday to give that to my clients. A place that is theirs, a place where each person will be accepted and treated with compassion and empathy.

My Role as a Therapist

My role as a therapist is to assist others on their journey. I have a lot of different therapeutic techniques and styles that we can chose from so that each person gets what they need from our time together. I don't offer a cookie cutter approach, because I believe that each situation is different. But what I do offer each of my clients is a place that is safe, where they will be treated with dignity and respect. It is not my job to judge it is my job to assist each person with whatever they choose through the use of therapeutic interventions.
