My Approach to Helping
It is exhausting trying to keep up the appearance that everything is okay when you know it's really not. You put on a brave face and go out into the world, but there's something holding you back from really enjoying your life and relationships. It feels like something from your past keeps creeping up to the surface, and you're ready to get some closure. You're worried that if you talk about it, you'll lose control. But something has to change, and you're ready. You want to have some peace in your mind and in your heart. You want to be able to say "yes, I've been through some stuff, but I'm okay," and really mean it. You're looking for a way to be a happier you.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
I may be slightly biased... but I think everyone should go to therapy at some point in their life. Let's face it: life can be super challenging at times. Having someone in your corner (like me!) can give you a sounding board for your struggles. Talking to a therapist is different than talking to a friend or family member because I'm removed from the situation. I can provide an outsider's perspective and guidance that your loved ones, although usually well-intentioned, cannot.
I've had so many clients tell me that they feel so much better after just a couple sessions. This is because it feels GOOD to get things out. I provide a nonjudgmental safe space for you to talk about whatever you need to feel better. After scratching the surface of daily struggles, we can usually dive deeper into past experiences and unhelpful core beliefs about yourself, others, and the world to create life-long changes for the better.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Going to therapy is actually a sign of strength! I know, I've been there. Especially as a therapist myself, I struggled with reaching out for help because "I know this stuff, I should be able to do this on my own!" Once I broke down that wall I grew so much and found even more strength within. I love helping my clients do the same.
I don't know you (yet!) but I am PROUD OF YOU. Seeking help is not an easy thing to do, and understanding that helps me to be an even more effective healer.
