My Approach to Helping
Mental health struggles often present as feeling stuck in a life that is unfulfilling, having trouble letting go of painful parts of the past, or feeling overwhelmed by life’s responsibilities. I endeavor to help people deal with the immediate problems in their life, while also learning how problems can be the building blocks to a life rich with meaning and purpose.
I offer online (video-based) therapy to treat trauma, grief & loss, anxiety, and depression. I use CBT and Mindfulness based techniques in my work, but the foundation of my therapeutic approach is from an Existential Therapy perspective, which allows us to slow down and look closely at your current experience so that together we can shape the future you want to have.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy is a way to heal, it is a process. This therapeutic process is about the person and the person's world (with all of their capabilities and deficits being the theme of the work). I believe that therapy should be about helping the person to develop their faculties, their capabilities, and their capacities. In therapy, we look at where you are blocked, hindered, hurt, and where you need to be strengthened through support, understanding and compassion.
