My Approach to Helping

Welcome

I think we all have heard a saying that goes along the lines of “You can’t take care of others without taking care of yourself”. It has a lot of truth to it, but it’s easy to say it and not know what to actually do about it. The fact that you are here, means that you are taking all the right steps to genuinely fulfill your need of helping yourself and likely for the first time in a long time, putting yourself first.

Therapy is a helpful way of finding yourself in the fast paced life that we live on a day to day basis. It is a powerful tool in discovering better ways to cope with life’s problems, emotions, relationships, communication, and everything in between. I would be honored to be a part of your journey to healing, self-discovery, or having someone nonjudgmental to assist in guiding you to the next part of your life.

How I Work:

I take the time to understand every client that I speak to by asking about their story. Everyone’s story is important because everyone is vastly different from the next person. There can never be one answer to every problem, just as there could never be the same solution for every person. Because of this, I make sure to tailor every session to what is currently happening in your life. I also take the time to understand your values in life, which all affect how you will use therapy in real life situations. I utilize theories based in cognitive psychology, which is a fancy way of saying how you think about your life and thought process when you are simply being yourself. Additionally, I use mindfulness based approaches to help deal with the stress of difficult issues.

You are the expert of your life and only you can say what your goals are in therapy and life. Therefore, we work as a team to build a plan that fits your needs. I believe that we are all responsible for our present and future. Let us take this important step together in getting control of your life in a safe, confidential, and healthy way!
