My Approach to Helping

Life can sometimes be overwhelming. Therapy offers a safe support system as you navigate through some of life's more difficult challenges.
Are you seeking therapy for problems related to relationship issues, depressionanxiety, trauma (past or present), grief and loss, parenting, care of elderly parents, or even facing mortality? Do you feel like you are stuck in a holding pattern or caught up in destructive patterns?
If so, therapy may help you. If that feels like an option you'd like to try, I offer a safe environment for you to confidentially share your experiences and concerns.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

The client-therapist relationship is one of, if not the most important aspects of therapeutic work. Relationships build over time, in a safe and supportive environment. It is one of the fundamental elements of my work as a therapist,
whether it is your first time in therapy or you've had previous therapists. There are different therapeutic approaches, but each therapist brings their own style and individuality into the mix.
I consider what my client's share with me to be a combination of factors: nature, nurture, relationships, griefloss, changes in life stages, and often times, trauma. Before anything can be worked through, I need to gain your trust and I consider this to be an honor.
