My Approach to Helping
There are many reasons that you may be seeking a therapist at this moment. You may be seeking support for yourself due to a loss, relationship difficulties or simply because you are feeling worried or sad and may not understand why. You may be looking for parenting guidance andor for a therapist for your child.
I believe that everyone has the right and the ability to live an engaged, balanced, satisfying life.
I know it can be hard to reach out for help. I see therapy as a partnership and it is my goal to offer an open, non-judgmental, and safe therapeutic relationship in which you will feel accepted as you are and understood. I am warm, kind and reflective. Working together, we can help you find the relief you are seeking.
More Info About My Practice
In my practice, I see children, adolescents and adults who are seeking help for a variety of reasons. Common areas of need include depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and relationship difficulties. With children, these concerns may express themselves through externalizing behaviors at school andor at home. I offer an open, non-judgmental, and safe therapeutic relationship. My approach is adapted carefully to individual needs and is inclusive in regard to gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, culture, class, and religiousspiritual orientation. I work with many LGBTQ+ individuals in my practice.
I incorporate psychodynamic, relational, and strength-based techniques to help facilitate change and bring about relief. I am trained in both Brainspotting and Somatic Experiencing and use these somatic strategies to help my clients address trauma, grief and difficult emotions and memories. With children and teens, I use a non-directive play-based approach.
