My Approach to Helping
I deeply believe in the power of therapy and that real transformation can happen in relationship when you are met with support, compassion, and attunement. I always invite honoring the authentic self, even when life gets messy and feelings are painful.
As someone who has always been attuned to people's emotions and conflicts, I know the value of providing a warm and inviting space where you feel seen, heard, and supported. Therapy can be that safe space for you to explore what you've been holding inside, especially if you feel like nobody else understands. So often in life and relationships, people are not feeling the validation that all humans need. I view this as a collaborative process, and I am committed to partnering with you to achieve your goals and empower you to live your best life.
My philosophy with therapy is that people are not their diagnoses or traumas. People need perspective, compassion, kindness, and depth they often don't receive in their daily lives. Therapy can help from the start to provide some of those unmet needs. Therapy can be hard work at times and also one of the best gifts to give yourself.
People and their stories are complex, and there is no one mold that fits all. Clients who get the most out of therapy with me are often motivated, curious, and sensitive individuals who have a strong desire to work on their personal growth. I use a very individualized approach to see how we can best support your needs.
