My Approach to Helping
Finding one’s self can be trying and often feels circular and defeating. Many people find themselves feeling as though they are continuing the same patterns to little avail. I believe that most of our behaviors serve a purpose for better, or for worse. By gaining greater understanding of our patterns, we are able to gain flexibility in how we approach life’s trials and tribulations. Through an authentic and warm relationship, I believe individuals can find ways of approaching their difficulties with confidence. Whether situational or organic, I therapeutically address most difficulties you, or someone you care for, may possess.
I place emphasis on adults attempting to find direction and purpose in their lives, individuals with anxiety and depression and people who struggle with feeling secure in their relationships both romantic and platonic. I take a directive approach, though I am certainly amenable to other modes of engagement.
I place special emphasis on individuals prone to resistance and those who, out of their own needs, have had a hard time expressing themselves in therapy before. I look forward to meeting you and gaining an understanding of your circumstances and needs. I happily anticipate helping you feel safe, understood and empowered.
