My Approach to Helping
The wound is the place where the light enters you. ~ Rumi
A few things I'd love for you to know about this therapy venture: It is a worthwhile, validating, and eye-opening experience! (Believe me, I’ve done my own work with a therapist!) Much is taken in, explored, and clarified in the therapeutic relationship. You have the space to do just that. Therapy offers a new or different perspective that can bring awareness and healing. Lastly, it’s a sacred place where one is heard, seen, and understood. All this leads to consistent and rewarding progress toward your goals!
My work with individuals, couples, and families brings me to the realization that most people seeking therapy have a past wound that needs healing, closure. Life’s stresses, experiences, and transitions sometimes bring this wound to the surface. With this in mind, I work with my clients using both "emotional" and "practical" interventions; while providing practical tools to best cope with and handle tough situations. Another approach I use is creating a trusting environment (where the client can feel safe and supported). This type of environment is crucial in reaching one's therapy goals!
My own life experiences, professional training, and healing work with clients enable me to guide you towards a better life involving healing and personal growth. I realize making the commitment to do therapy is huge, and may feel risky. Know it’s an honor for me to work with you, and to offer a different, new perspective. I also can provide you with useful tools to implement in all areas of your life.
