My Approach to Helping
In therapy, we will do much more than simply talk about your challenges. We will talk about solutions! My passion is providing a secure, non-judgmental space where we will work to discover what you really want out of life, love and relationships. We will quiet the inner critic, develop positive patterns, and lay the foundation for you to become the best version of "you" in all of your interactions. I believe you will improve in your confidence, compassion, and communication and be on your way to asking for what you need and want whether you are in a restaurant or in a relationship! I believe in you!
More Info About My Practice
I am passionate about building healthy, lasting, intimate relationships. A connection with an intimate partner may result in our experiencing tremendous joy or intense pain. In many cases, conflicts may make us feel vulnerable or hurt, but they also provide a fantastic opportunity for growth. I help couple's recognize negative communication patterns, and explore how vulnerability may lead to increased trust, safety, and intimacy.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
Many people are afraid of change, so it is natural for individuals to be concerned about what exactly happens during treatment. Despite these concerns though, people in therapy often recognize that reaching out was never a weakness but a superpower! I recognize your courage and commitment in taking that first step. I have been called an excellent listener by numerous clients and this natural ability often puts the most nervous client at ease.
Over the course of my professional career, the men and women I have worked with report greater self confidence, healthy resolutions to longstanding issues, decreased anxiety and stress, more realistic expectations, and closer relationships. It was an honor for me to help them reach their therapeutic goals. And I would be honored to work with you too.
