My Approach to Helping

Sometimes it is difficult to sort through emotions triggered by day-to-day stress, from a painful past, or unexpected life challenges. Any of these situations can change how we view ourselves and where we fit in the world.

Have you thought:
"I'm tired";
"Why me?";
"Why now?";
"I'm there for everyone and no one is there for me";
"I don't know who I am";
"No one cares";
"No one understands me";
"I'm not _______ (fill-in-the-blank) enough';
"I don't likelove myself';
"If they really knew me";
"I can't say no";
"I don't care anymore";
"I can't keep up";

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

These thoughts fuel and feed depression, anxiety, stress, perfectionism, and low self-worth. Together, we can explore your strengths and values, build insight into patterns and behaviors that may be holding you back, and determine how to make healthy change a part of your life. Sometimes people just need someone to listen, others need healing from a difficult past or present, while some struggle to set healthy boundaries, build connection, find relief from emotional pain and suffering, over-thinkanalyze, reduce self-judgments, or learn to cope with inevitable life challenges.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

People learn and adapt differently, so I use elements from different therapeutic approaches. I do most often work from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Solutions-Focused Therapy. I hope to help you understand your thoughts and feelings, about what triggers them, how to build self-esteem, and how to cope overall.

We can work together to discover the strengths you may not have known you have to achieve more satisfying and balanced relationships at work, at home, and in your community.
