My Approach to Helping
Life is full of ups and downs. Therapy helps you make sense of it all, and feel more equipped to manage the difficult times. Whether your difficulties are related to past experiences of pain or trauma, internalized negative messages you’ve received about yourself, anxiety about taking up space, or a need to be perfect or please others, I believe it’s never too late to start the journey of healing and self understanding. I specialize in trauma and PTSD recovery, and family and relationship issues. I also help folks with a range of symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, identity related stress, and academic or work issues.
As a feminist therapist, I believe that you are the expert on your life. I’m here to help you find ways to live more congruently with your values. I will help you let go of old stuff that’s no longer serving you, and try out new ways of coping and relating. I strive to create a non-judgmental space, where you can feel seen, heard, supported, and challenged.
Finding the right therapist can be a daunting process, and therapy tends to work best when both parties feel like it's a good fit. I take an active, collaborative role as a therapist, and have a direct and transparent communication style. If my approach resonates with what you're looking for, please reach out for a brief phone consultation.
