My Approach to Helping
Nothing excites or ignites me more than helping people to discover (or re-discover) and live their authentic lives, free of shame. I bring a warm and nonjudgmental presence to be with you in the moment. I am passionate about helping you free yourself from feeling "stuck" in unhelpful thought patterns. I don't believe people need "fixing." Rather, we can all practice more skills to cope with our fast-paced, social-media-infused life that leaves so many feeling lonely and isolated.
I work with individuals with anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationship issues, trauma and those in the LGBTQ+ community. Other specialties include: healthy relationships, consent, sex/intimacy, gender and sexuality (both intimacy sex-wise and affectional sexual orientation-wise) in a judgment-free, poly-friendly, kink-aware setting. No nudity in session.
I never ask the question (out loud or in my head) "What's wrong with you?" but rather, "What do you want to change or accomplish?" I want therapy to work for you: my counseling style is grounded in collaboratively setting realistic goals and identifying steps to reach those goals.
