My Approach to Helping

My approach to therapy can be described as collaborative, nonjudgmental, and personalized. I provide a safe space for clients to open up at their own comfortable pace and guide them through the use of evidence-based practices. I like to meet clients where they’re at and view the therapeutic relationship as one of equals. I try to elicit insight and awareness and provide coping skills along the way in order for clients to be able to handle what gets uncovered throughout treatment. My ultimate goal is to provide clients with the skills necessary to create a life worth living and to self manage after therapy ends.

More Info About My Practice

I am a sole practitioner and have a well rounded resource base if referrals are needed throughout our time working together. I am currently only providing telehealth appointments to any client residing in Florida or Vermont due to COVID-19.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

I have had a lot of clients tell me stories about therapists in the past that they did not like or did not find helpful. One possibility is that the therapist may not have been trained well enough to help the client with their specific issues. Another is that sometimes people enter therapy before they are really ready to do the work and therefore walk away disappointed or even terminate early. It also could have been that the person and the therapist did not have personalities that worked well together or the modality the therapist chose did not fit well for the clients style. And, as with all career fields, there are unfortunately some therapists who simply are not that great for one reason or another. I like to start first sessions by understanding these past therapeutic experiences to ensure that we do not run into the same issues.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Contrary to what most people think, choosing a therapist is more about the fit of personalities than about their qualifications. Tap into how you feel when reading through therapist bios and find one that appears welcoming and elicits a sense of warmth. The therapeutic relationship actually becomes a model for other relationships in your life, so it will develop also over time and may hit a bump or two. Take advantage of free assessments and speak with a few before you decide. You will also want to ask and ensure that they can help you with the problems you are bringing into therapy, so do not be afraid to ask about trainings they have received or modalities they highlight. Finding a good therapist is a lot like finding a good pair of shoes. You want a good fit first and foremost, one that can provide strong support but who does not do the walking for you. Clients guide the therapeutic process, the therapist is there to point out blind spots and potholes along the way.
