My Approach to Helping
Is there anything you’d change about your life? Why would that change matter to you?
Asking questions is powerful. Questions spur self-exploration and allow you to see situations from a different perspective. By bringing curiosity into sessions, I guide clients toward happier, healthier, and more productive lives.
The truth is, we all suffer. The difference between surviving and thriving is how we find ways to cope, stay present even when it's hard, and push back against unhelpful thoughts. To get there, we’ll address the underlying causes and set concrete, attainable goals to face these challenges. Together, we’ll find solutions to feeling more connected.
More Info About My Practice
I dabble in several creative pursuits during my free time, including writing fiction, drawing, and painting watercolors. Art is a coping mechanism I’ve always turned to when I'm feeling down or stressed. A big focus in my therapy practice is helping clients identify strategies of their own for handling difficult emotions when they come up.
Whether it’s through making art, watching your favorite movie, or spending time with people you love, identifying healthy coping mechanisms is one of the best things you can do to address challenges and find happiness. Many people spend too much time feeling insecure about who they are, what they look like, or what they haven’t accomplished. If you can learn to leave those things behind and be present and content right where you are, life opens up for you.
People of every age, race, religion, gender, and sexuality deserve happiness, respect, and the freedom to seek joyful, productive lives.
