My Approach to Helping
A strong therapeutic relationship is the starting point for positive change. With effort and time, you can explore emotions such as loneliness, shame, anger, fear, and sadness to understand how they affect your life. My practice is informed by attachment theory and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Greater awareness of your feelings and thoughts can help you make positive behavioral changes. A trusting therapeutic relationship offers space to grow while strengthening your sense of self and relationships. I look forward to working with you on this exciting, fulfilling journey!
I hope to help you use positive communication and coping skills. You already have these skills. My goal is to help them feel natural and comfortable. I am also a passionate sex educator and provide lectures and open forum discussions in a wide variety of contexts including chemical dependency, mood disorders, and relationship concerns and served as an adjunct faculty member at Augsburg University in the Social Work department from 2018-2021.
I hope to provide a safe space where you can freely discuss your feelings without judgment.
