My Approach to Helping

I work with adults and young adults who are seeking support related to anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, women's issues, life transitions, communication issues, career development, grief and loss, trauma, and relationship difficulties. I am committed to supporting individuals in the LGBTQ+ community, students in higher education, and people who are working on personal growth or enhanced self-awareness.

My goal is to create an empathic, collaborative, and reflective space where clients can feel comfortable exploring their concerns and goals. I am invested in being fully present in the moment with clients to unpack and explore the topics that they bring to counseling, recognizing each client's individuality and intersecting identities.

My approach is eclectic, emphasizing humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and mindfulness-based techniques. From a trauma-informed framework, I support clients in gaining a deeper understanding of their experiences, building a sense of empowerment, recognizing their resiliency, and identifying ways to create sustainable changes in their lives.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Making the choice to start therapy can be challenging - it's not always easy to set aside time to take care of yourself. Choosing the right therapist, making sure you really 'click' with that person, can mean the difference between following through on your commitment to self-care or changing your mind. Often, clients find that their relationship with the therapist, including feeling comfortable and supported, is the most important aspect of therapy.

When you're looking for a therapist to work with, think about what you're hoping to find. Are you looking for someone to listen and be supportive - to hold space for you to explore your thoughts? To validate your concerns and experiences? Someone to ask a lot of questions and guide you through the session? Someone to point out specific patterns and behaviors, and hold you accountable to following through on making changes in your life? Is there something specific that you want to work on, which might be better addressed by a therapist with specific experience? Many therapists offer free initial phone consultations, which is a good opportunity for you as the client to ask questions of the therapist, and make sure that this is someone you can see yourself feeling comfortable working with. I encourage clients to take advantage of free consultations, and to continue engaging in open communication throughout therapy about what is helpful.
