My Approach to Helping
If you are feeling frustrated with your life and confused by the way you are not able to achieve your full potential because you have what can seem like bewildering experiences such as times of desperation, anxiety, self-loathing, shame, or depression, I can support you in learning how to feel more in control of your life. In a curious, accepting, and nonjudgmental way, I collaborate closely with you to identify what is getting in the way of you having the life you want and to make sense of your experience. I can support you in developing self-awareness and mindfulness about the parts of you that are trying to take care of you, but that prevents you from achieving your goals in perhaps confusing ways. Drawing on specialized approaches, I can offer a wide range of powerful interventions to help you move forward, even when you have felt stuck in old patterns. When you gain an awareness and develop compassion towards different parts of yourself, you can start making more conscious, mindful choices about your life.
More Info About My Practice
I believe that each individual has a unique way of healing but that this inner wisdom gets hidden as a result of the stress of every day living. My goal is to use cutting edge techniques to provide a client with opportunities to access their true self so that they can unleash their full potential.
I provide clinical supervision and training to therapist interns.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I have been so touched to be able to see people make profound changes in their lives. It feels so meaningful to work alongside someone while they work on overcoming the impact of difficult experiences to really create a fulfilling, satisfying life.
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
If you experienced difficulties in significant relationships when you were a child, having a therapist you can trust, who you feel is compassionate, caring, and non-judgmental is a vital part of therapy and is a significant part of successful treatment. I offer a free 20-minute telephone consultation so that you can get an initial sense of whether working with me would be a good fit.
