My Approach to Helping
Have you ever had someone tell you to just get over it? Or to think positively, it could be worse? You can rest assured I won't say those things. You need a space that is open and nonjudgemental so that you can get evidenced based tools to help support your anxiety and overwhelm. I've helped many like by specializing in this topic. I know how awful it feels to be overwhelmed and I will constantly remind you that only a part of you is feeling that way because I see you as a dynamic human being who is much more than this struggle. We'll work collaboratively to address your worry and anxiety in this moment. We'll address what is going on in your brain and body when you are feeling that way because knowledge is power to providing you long lasting tools of support. We'll examine your relationships with others and provide support so you can start prioritizing yourself and your your needs. You'll gain confidence, and resilience so that you our work has a long lasting impact.
More Info About My Practice
I believe that therapy is for everyone and our emotional well being is just as an important as our physical well being. I believe that even though change is scary, it is possible to do it at any point in your lifetime. I believe our relationship with our self and others is at the core of how we interact with and view the world. That means that I will also focus on your relationship with yourself in our sessions. I believe that therapy doesn't always have to be stuffy or serious. I like to be creative in session and you can find me sliding in some humor in session from time to time. I don't discriminate against anyone. I make it a point to participate in community actions that support the BLM movements & LGBTQ community. I honestly just really like to help people. If you want to learn more about how I can help you, send me a message.
I know you're busy and that is why my practice is a teletherapy practice only in the state of Colorado. I am telementalhealth certified and take your privacy and security very seriously.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
You're not alone. It is completely normal to be concerned about the therapy process. If you choose to work with me then we will discuss all of your concerns anytime they come up. I invite open communication in all of my therapy sessions with client. Many people have had great experiences with therapy and there are people who haven't had great experiences as well. I offer a complimentary consultation so that we can see if we might be a good fit to work together. It is very important that you feel connected to and supported by your therapist, even if that person isn't me. To anyone concerned about the therapy process or on the fence about going to therapy I would also say just take a small step forward. Reach out to a therapist to see if they are a good fit for you. That alone is progress!
