My Approach to Helping

On the outside you look productive and “fine,” but inside you feel like you’re barely keeping it together. You’ve been working hard to make changes in your life, but it seems like the harder you try, the worse things get. The daily tasks of life feel exhausting. And you find yourself experiencing intense bursts of anger or irritation that seem to come out of nowhere.

You’re wondering if there might be a connection between what you’re experiencing now and events in your past. You suspect there’s a lot to process regarding your family or current and past relationships, but you don’t know where to start.

You want to feel at home in your life: connected, confident, and valued. To find solutions to the issues keeping you stuck. To sleep peacefully at night feeling secure in your most important relationships. To know how to move forward in the direction you want for your life—and to figure out what you really want and need.

I understand what you’re feeling because I've been there before, and I've helped many clients get "unstuck" and begin building the life they long for. My approach is gentle, trauma-informed, and active. I ask direct questions, give feedback, offer suggestions and resources, and gently point out where things aren't working--so that we can figure out together how to do things differently.

The clients who experience the most success with me are clients who come ready to make changes and try something different. They are willing to take responsibility for their role in relationships, apply what they’re learning, and actively contribute to our work. If that sounds like a challenging + compelling step you're ready for, give me a call or send me a message today. I'd love to work with you to discover new possibilities for change, hope, and connection!
