My Approach to Helping
Are you finding yourself unsatisfied with where you are at in life? Are there patterns in your emotions, relationships, behaviors and substance use that you would like to change and move past? Maybe there are specific issues you are hoping to address, and maybe your entire life feels very off from where you would like it to be and you’re not sure where to start. Either way you’ve taken a very important step by starting to look for help.
I specialize in helping people through depression, addiction, trauma, and difficult relationship patterns. Many of my clients are emotionally intelligent and self aware, but struggle with self criticism, asserting their needs in relationships, and using substances or addictive behaviors to mask their emotions.
More Info About My Practice
As a depth therapist, I’m interested in exploring underneath the surface of your psyche to better help you understand the root causes of what is troubling you. I am and integral therapist, meaning I am trained in and practice multiple different modalities including Transpersonal, Gestalt and Psychodynamic psychotherapy. I believe each individual has a unique path to healing, so I customize the treatment and tools used based on the individual needs of the client. I always maintain a humanistic, relational and mindfulness philosophy in our work, following you as the ultimate authority on your experience, and trusting the therapeutic relationship to be the primary vehicle of healing in the work.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I help individual adolescents, adults, and couples move through difficult experiences in life and come to more wholeness and satisfaction. I specialize in helping individuals who are struggling with addiction and alcoholism, people facing depression and overcoming trauma, and men who are struggling with isolation and a fear of commitment or intimacy. I have specific training and experience helping couples move past conflicts and come to a place of love and harmony in their relationships. I also work with integration of past psychedelic and plant medicine experiences to aid the healing journey.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I came to this work after years of searching to find right relationship with my life and career. After studying Economics and Religious Studies in undergraduate college, I came to the field of psychology in 2016 for my masters degree in Integral Counseling Psychology. Since then I have dived deep into the study and practice of psychology and psychotherapy in a continuous effort to best equip myself to be able to show up for others and help them move towards healing in their lives. My practice of therapy has come out of the realization that the best thing to devote my life to is the betterment and healing of those around me. Offering therapy fulfills my deepest sense of belonging in life and it is truly my pleasure to be offering these services.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
Therapy works best when it's done weekly. There is a momentum that gets built with weekly appointments that helps the therapy get off the ground. I can sometimes offer ad-hoc scheduling as available, depending on the situation.
