My Approach to Helping

I specialize in solution-focused help and clinical therapy, with a focus on helping to improve quality of life and relationships, as well as symptoms.

Completing a puzzle might be relaxing when you have all the pieces, and when the pieces come together with synchronicity. But how to put it together when there are pieces missing, or when it seems they have been hidden away? Some pieces a bit worn out, some tattered or forgotten, some lost beneath the *stuff*... Therapy allows us to join together and figure it out. I have practical ways of helping and genuine caring, and you know the things you are dealing with and a sense towards change.

Therapy can provide a powerful process for bringing together parts of yourself that you may not be sure of how to sustain. Like a beautiful puzzle, when nearly complete, there are incredible elements of joy and peace that blend through who you truly are, and these elements of who you are, become increasingly uninterrupted as you heal, grow and develop. You are absolutely all there.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

As a psychologist, my approach is interpersonal, integrative and evidence-based, adapted for unique needs and values.

There may be some things which you may not want to discuss, or at least not at first. Therapy can feel risky and vulnerable, and it can take time to open up. What I need to know as we work together, ultimately, includes those things which you are ready to share, as you are ready to share them. My philosophy is that it is my job to facilitate the help that is sought. I am very compassionate and pragmatic. Regardless of how much you are able to say at first, I will do my best to be of help as quickly as possible.
