My Approach to Helping
The relationship between a person and their therapist is the most important aspect of the therapeutic process. It is crucial that you feel safe, heard, and understood by your therapist. I offer a non-judgmental, warm, and empathic space for you to explore painful and potentially shameful issues. I participate actively and honestly in the sessions, by offering insight and guidance to help you uncover deep-rooted issues that are often difficult to face. I will help you discover your authentic self; leaving behind old patterns and habits that were unhelpful and did not fit who you would ultimately like to be as a person. We will work collaboratively to help you thrive in your career, strengthen relationships, and learn how to tolerate life's difficulties. I work from a client-centered approach, tailoring my work to the needs of each specific person. For example, some people may benefit more from brief goal oriented therapy, while others may be in need of a more in-depth psychodynamic approach.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
Finding the therapist that is the right fit for you can be time consuming, expensive, intimidating, and frustrating. It is important to know that therapy is a relationship, and not all therapists will be compatible for you. Most of us have a sense for what feels comfortable for us, and if you don't feel at ease when sitting in the room with a therapist, they may not be the right fit for you. It is also important to know, however, that building trust in the therapeutic relationship can take time. Be patient with yourself through this process, and trust your intuition, because finding a therapist is an important choice.
