My Approach to Helping
I believe real healing happens in the therapeutic relationship between us. No matter what you are coming to therapy for, a trusting and communicative relationship can help to provide safety when processing deeper, original wounds. The therapeutic relationship can model healthy and authentic ways of relationally being with another person in an honest, intimate, and vulnerable way.
My philosophy with therapy is that people are not their diagnoses or traumas. People need authentic compassion, kindness, and attunement 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. I use a very individualized approach to see how we can best support your needs and goals.
