My Approach to Helping

Starting therapy can often feel intimidating. Change can feel really hard.

People seek professional mental health care for a variety of reasons. Unable to play, or imagine something different? Sometimes we just feel stuck in our current patterns. There are times when we feel afraid, confused, sad, and overwhelmed. When these feelings begin to occur more often this can lead to stress and anxiety that can directly affect our daily functioning in work and relationships. Overwhelming feelings of distress may require another person to help you explore and understand their pull, so they no longer control your life. Therapy is a relationship where you can feel safe and free to be who you are with another person to explore what you want.

Psychotherapy is a collaborative, exploratory process which invites curiosity and compassion. Examining past experiences to illuminate the present and current thoughts and feelings as they arise during sessions is foundational. Our aim is not to dwell in the past, but to understand how it informs the present. I draw on different approaches and tailor my approach to what you need. My work is primarily psychodynamic, combining insight and reflection, but I also address your ways of coping and interpersonal interactions.
