My Approach to Helping
I help adults who feel scared or broken see their strength, break the cycles of dysfunction, and move from "surviving" to "thriving." So many of us carry our hurt around for YEARS before we do anything about it - because it is hard to trust others, we feel damaged, or we just need to keep going as best we can. If you are ready to dig deeper in an honest, compassionate, and safe space, it is my privilege to walk beside you.
My approach is active, collaborative, and straight-forward. Trust is earned and built over time in any relationship, even in therapy, and growth happens at your own pace. I strive to provide a safe context, honest reflection, and compassionate inquiry.
Together we will work together on a full understanding of the source of your pain and help you unravel and make sense of your internal conflicts and feelings. We will address past experiences, what is going on for you now, and where your internal compass tells you you would like to go. We will look at the relationships in your life - with your family, partner, and most importantly, your relationship with yourself. I will likely push you to reflect, think, and develop insight; I always aim to do so in a way where you still feel truly cared for. We will create the space for you to grow into yourself, become more aware, make sense of past scary experiences, and move towards the life you want to live.
