My Approach to Helping
Throughout our sessions, I strive to create an environment of compassion, acceptance, and present moment awareness. I don't see myself as fundamentally different from the client, but rather as someone who can bring a fresh perspective to their situation. I believe that the client and I are both climbing our own mountains, and I can use my vantage point to identify obstacles on their mountain that they may not be aware of. In therapy, every struggle is important, and no one's pain is Together, we can then find new ways to navigate these obstacles and chart a new course towards a more fulfilling life.
As a clinical counselor, I've worked 9+ years with diverse clients with various issues like behavioral problems, emotional regulation, PTSD, anxiety, depression, etc. I offer EMDR, an evidence-based trauma therapy that's fast and requires no homework. I use a range of techniques to bring stability to individuals, couples and families.
I encourage clients to take small, meaningful steps towards their goals, and to consistently build upon those steps over time. By doing so, they can create a strong foundation and achieve long-lasting change. Every struggle is important, and no one's pain is greater or less than another's. Don't hesitate to share, no matter how small it may seem.
