My Approach to Helping
How are you? What do you want from therapy? How can I help? It takes courage to reach out for help.
I listen carefully, and respond empathically and intelligently to what you choose to share with me in order to help you achieve your goals. Apart from having varied and valuable life experience, a recent Masters in Counseling Psychology and other excellent training, I love listening to people. Everyone has a story. People are remarkably resilient and respond well to a trauma-informed approach, CBT, DBT, Seeking Safety, Motivational Interviewing and expressive arts.
I lived, worked and traveled in Europe and Asia before making my home in the Bay Area for 20 years. I work effectively with all kinds of people, empowering them to make progress towards feeling happier, healthier, more connected and more productive in life. Looking forward to helping you achieve your goals.
