My Approach to Helping
It is a privilege to work with individuals who seek a more fulfilling life. Whether you are looking to reconcile the past, increase interpersonal connections, improve existing relationships or enhance career success, I am here to partner with you and support you in achieving your goals. Therapy can be a gateway to making powerful connections that cannot often times be made alone. Visualize where you want to be in personal relationships, career, financial desires; achieving the goals you have for the future sometimes requires support and guidance, that is what therapy can provide. Often times life transitions can throw you off course and into a pattern of negative coping. The support from a therapeutic alliance can be exactly what you need to get back on the right path.
More Info About My Practice
I am currently treating individuals, couples and adolescents. I have a supportive, friendly, warm, genuine style with the goal to make you feel comfortable and safe. The most important, vital part of therapy is the relationship that is established between client and therapist.
Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
Have you had a negative experience with a therapist? This is unfortunate, as it can leave a bad taste about therapy in general. However think of every field of practice out there; Dr's, lawyers, dentists, realtors, just about any field you think of has great candidates and poor ones. Often I discuss with colleagues, you can go to school to become a therapist and learn interventions, theories and framework for challenges but college does not teach you how to have a personality that empathizes and connects with people. Think of therapists as any other field, you have to get a feel for how a therapist makes you feel when in their presence, not all will be a good fit for you.
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
Not all therapists/clients will connect, click or be a good fit. I check in about this with clients, as this is the foundation of therapy. If you do not feel comfortable, safe, trusting and able to open up to your therapist; not much can be gained from therapy.
