My Approach to Helping
Throughout my time as a professional, I have grown to understand the significance surrounding connecting childhood learnings to problems currently arising within my client’s world. I believe we can't change our current situations if we don\'t know what is driving the behavior or thought process. Starting at the root and establishing patterns and connections is vital in healing, growing, creating new behaviors, and changing ways of thinking.
My ideal client is someone who is looking for a collaborative approach to counseling. I believe people seek counseling for a myriad of reasons, and if your reason is understand why a behavior of yours came about, or a want to change that behavior, I'm your gal. I often work well with young adults, aging from early twenties to mid thirties, as I have found clients feel safer in a space where they feel they are likeminded to their therapist and share similar life experiences.
I often utilize Gottman, Gestalt, brief solution-focused theory, attachment theory, and family systems models within the therapy space. I am a firm believer that therapy is not a one-size-fits all model. Every individual is unique, and each treatment approach should be equally as distinctive. We will work collaboratively on finding a therapeutic style that best fits whatever needs, goals, or ideas you bring into the space that week.
