My Approach to Helping

Many of us are struggling with issues like depression, anxiety, or the after effects of trauma. Or, perhaps you've been struggling with the same issues for many years and haven't yet found any ease around them. Therapies such as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) may offer a different approach. Change is possible. Together, we will develop a plan to help you navigate through and be able to move in an onward leading direction. I specialize in trauma, self-esteem issues, mental health wellness, and mindfulness.

My approach to therapy is to go in-depth and explore core issues fundamental to well-being. Getting to the roots often helps facilitate deep transformation and healing from the inside out. I enjoy helping clients uncover deeper layers of themselves, integrating these parts into a concrete whole, all leading towards a values-driven life.

I'm here to help you identify areas where further exploration, change, or healing is needed. I promise to offer you compassion and an open heart and mind. Therapy is a co-creation. I'm here to support you in reaching your life goals and to aid you through your own process of self-discovery.

More Info About My Practice

In addition to counseling and therapy services, I offer mindfulness and self-compassion coaching session. Mindfulness goes beyond simply sitting in meditation. It is a lifestyle of awareness and balance that can lead to improvements in health and well-being and reductions in stress and mental health symptoms. Many find it difficult to form the habit of incorporating mindfulness into their daily living. I am available to meet with you one-on-one to develop your individual mindfulness plan, supporting you and helping you to hold yourself accountable.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Therapy gives you an open space to express what is going on inside. Although there may be loved ones in your life who are available for support, which is great, there are certain things that you might not want to share with them or that would feel better to share with someone more objective. Oftentimes, the opening up that we do in therapy leads to our having insights into things we might not have seen before- truths about ourselves and others that help us better navigate through life. However, talking is only one part of therapy. It is also about doing- identifying your values and what is important to you, learning different skills and tools to help move you forward in the direction you want to go. Sometimes this means doing a lot of work around learning to self-regular and be able to find a space of peace and calm within. Depending on the circumstances, certain therapies such as EMDR may be needed to help you go deeper into the core issues and release things that you might have been carrying for years. In the end, therapy is a process of transformation, towards living a better life.
