My Approach to Helping

Seeking psychotherapy can be a huge step. It is not often easy asking for help especially when dealing with psychological stress. There are many reasons why you may be ready to explore how psychotherapy can make a difference in your life right now. Maybe there are long-standing psychological issues that need to be addressed, anxiety or depressive symptoms and poor health habits that get in the way of you living your life, feeling stuck in your relationships or your phase of life, unable to move on from past traumatic experiences, or maybe you need emotional support to strengthen skills you learned previously in therapy. Regardless what it is, I believe that you are an expert in yourself and together with my clinical expertise we become partners in the therapeutic process to achieve the goals you set for yourself and to work towards creating a satisfyingly fulfilling life whatever that means for you (whether it be to lower levels of anxiety and stress, letting go of the past, decreased conflict, and improved quality of life, etc...). There is no one size fits all approach. Using a very eclectic approach, the therapeutic process is tailored to your needs as we decide what they are right now and what future you want to create.
