My Approach to Helping
Life is hard. We all find times in our lives when it just feels like too much. Expectations and pressures weighing on us; fears and self-doubt keeping us immobilized; uncertainty about the future and regrets from the past making it difficult to enjoy anything in the here and now. Therapy isn’t just about looking at childhood experiences and discovering “why” we do what we do. It’s also about how to move forward: what do we unpack, unload, discard, or take with us? What do we need and what can we let go of? Life will always have its challenges, but why not learn how we can navigate through it with less burden and “baggage?” I can’t make life easy for you, but I can help guide you and walk with you in support of your journey to figure out how to lighten the load. Whether that load is depression, anxiety, substance use, dealing with the unexpected and expected changes in your life, or simply gaining more clarity for what you want for yourself in life. Therapy is not one-size-fits-all and my approach is to tailor treatment to each individual’s unique set of circumstances and needs that will seek to improve your quality of life in a safe and affirming setting. Every individual deserves to be treated with respect, kindness, care, and understanding and my number one goal are to make sure you feel heard and supported.
