My Approach to Helping

I’m a good therapist for you if you’re looking for someone to deeply engage with you around the challenges coming up in your life. I am warm and gentle, but also honest and direct. Sometimes you need someone to simply hold you in all that you are, and sometimes you need some encouragement to really examine how you’re approaching your life. I do both.

I think of therapy as a collaborative process, so it’s going to look different depending on how you like to work and what you need in order to grow. However, here’s a brief list of some of the methods that I am trained in and like to offer.

Mindfulness: In my office, mindfulness means slowing down and bringing compassionate awareness to the details of your experience. This is useful both for developing greater self awareness, and also for finding more freedom and choice in your responses to the world.

Experiential Therapy: Sometimes, greater self understanding is not enough to lead to actual change. In order to change, we also need to have new experiences. Therefore, I keep my eyes open for ways that we can experiment in session with the themes coming up in your life.

Movement & Touch: The body is an incredibly rich source of experience and expression, and one of the most important ways that we create connection. When appropriate and desired, I may offer touch or movement exercises as a way of exploring yourself and feeling supported.

Relationship: The relationship you have with your therapist matters a lot. It is my goal to create a space where you feel safe, accepted and attended to, and sometimes that means looking at things that come up between the two of us. I welcome this type of process.

If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me for a free consultation call. I’m happy to hear more about you and your situation and discuss how we might work together.
