My Approach to Helping
There are many reasons that people choose to pursue therapy. Maybe you’re experiencing a creative drought. Maybe you are struggling with a difficult diagnosis, medical trauma, or a hampered lifestyle because of a chronic condition. Maybe you’ve experienced a loss - and loss doesn’t necessarily mean a death, it could be any kind of loss, from seeing a family member change under the influence of drugs to a new direction in your career. Stress and anxiety are also common indicators that outside help might be needed. I want you to know that, no matter what brought you to this search, you’re allowed to seek help, and you’re going to be glad you did.
I work with people who are going through difficult times. I offer a compassionate approach to healing - I won’t be considering you with a posture of judgment, but rather with an eye for what could be helpful to your healing and growth. I believe that we are all struggling with something - you are not the only one - and my intention is to teach you skills that help you enjoy a greater sense of peace, happiness, and resilience. The strategies I’ll equip you with are rooted in an understanding of the brain and how habits and patterns of thought and behavior truly can be rewired in your mind. Mindfulness is a huge part of that, which also helps you regulate your nervous system and stay in your “rest and repair zone,” which facilitates mind body healing.
I believe that change is possible. Sometimes we need a supportive guide to help us to know where and how to begin. Change requires consistent effort, but when taken one step at a time, it doesn’t have to be hard.
