My Approach to Helping
You are not a problem that needs to be fixed, you are a human who needs to feel cared for, understood, and accepted, by yourself and others! I believe these are core human needs and when they are not met we are more likely to feel disconnected from ourselves and others, be overwhelmed by life's difficulties, and rely on external sources of happiness. Conversely, when they are met, we are better equipped to feel authentic connections to ourselves and others, cope with distress, and find inner happiness.
I want to help you meet the core human needs that contribute to optimal health and growth. Within us lies incredible healing resources and given the right circumstance they can be activated and result in transformative experiences. My goal is to help create the opportunities for the activation of your innate healing resources, which can contribute to mental, emotional, and physical health.
I believe that environmental, biological, and social factors contribute to health and would take all three into consideration in my assessment of your concerns and needs. Also, my therapeutic approach is based on the premise that mind, body, and emotions interact with and influence one another and my interventions target all three.
My clients have described me as authentic, attentive, compassionate, empathetic, educative, flexible, non-judgmental, patient, and supportively challenging. I am grateful for the opportunity to do this work and feel honored when I am chosen to be a part of someone's healing journey.
