My Approach to Helping
My style of therapy is warm, accepting and compassionate. I am here to walk alongside you as you navigate life's challenges and pursue personal growth. Therapy is the beginning of new possibilities and scheduling an appointment is a brave first step. I work with adolescents, teens and adults from all walks of life. My goal is to create a safe space where you can share your story, including your fears, worries, sadness, trauma and loss, as well as your joys, achievements and strengths. You are the expert in your own life and your experiences are uniquely your own. You may be experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, difficulties in relationships, parenting struggles, grief or issues with worklife balance. Unfortunately, we often get stuck in unconscious patterns or ineffective modes of coping. We will work together to explore and develop insight around your thought patterns and responses to life events and work towards gaining new skills and achieving desired goals.
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and specialize in trauma-informed, person-centered, strengths-based care. I utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities and techniques to address the issues that are interfering with your quality of life. I use empathy and understanding to meet you where you are and respond in a way that best fits your needs in order for you to live a life of meaning, purpose and balance. I look forward to taking this journey with you!
