My Approach to Helping
When have you last been with someone who is absolutely, 100%, listening with their heart? What you need is important! It may be a past or current trauma. It may be overwhelming concern or anxiety around something in your life. At my office, many approaches can be used. This can include EMDR, mindfulness, and strengths based therapy. This can include play therapy.
I work with each person through their natural language. The majority of the time is for you to share and express, while being heard very clearly. You will be listened to very closely, very sincerely. Clear insights and feedback can be provided when that is helpful.

There are unique things that can be brought into therapy, and I enjoy doing just that! I work with my African Grey parrot to support social communication, work through social anxiety, and development of attachment.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
Struggles with self doubt are something most people can relate to on a deeply personal level. Anyone who has had difficulty with social difficulties and negative experiences, likely knows how this feels. This is part of my story since I first attended school as a small child. I was often mis-understood by teachers, friends, and parents. Fortunately, self doubt can be replaced by confidence, self acceptance, and changes in how we think about ourselves. An important part of success often has to be support from others. You may be needing this same support right now, and I understand. As I support others in building this same self confidence, I'm often simply passing forward what others have given me.
