My Approach to Helping

Good therapy is all about making connections and building personal awareness. Everyone gets stuck sometimes! Most people at some point find themselves feeling unmotivated, uninspired, isolated, or even completely lost. During times of struggle and overwhelm having another mind to help you think and make meaning within a safe and non-judgemental space can be the key to moving forward. My therapeutic approach is warm, engaged, and non-directive. By listening deeply I strive to meet each person where they are and to help make meaningful links between past and present with an eye toward decreasing emotional and psychological suffering. I love my work as a therapist and I have the utmost respect for every person who entrusts me to do this very important work with them. It is an honor to hold my clients histories, stories, vulnerabilities, and strengths. I am continually awed by the courage and resilience of the human spirit and am grateful to witness these qualities in my clients everyday within a therapeutic context.

Groups I Work With

    I particularly enjoy working with people who are struggling or in the midst of major life transitions. These transitions vary and can be of any size, great or small. I have found that all transitions no matter the magnitude contain both gain and loss and with intention and insight provide us with great opportunities to shift our identities and perspectives in positive ways. I have a strong interest and affinity for working with individuals who are struggling with issues related to gender andor sexuality. I also enjoy working with people who are for whatever reason feeling alienated, isolated, and disconnected. I believe that the greatest therapeutic change agent is connection. The therapeutic alliance is built on a strong connection and this sense of connection provides safety and is a large part of what I continually strive for within my work.
