My Approach to Helping
Why do we seek connection? Our connections with ourselves, with others, and with our communities can bring us tremendous joy, meaning, and fulfillment. At the same time, experiences of disconnection and loss can elicit anxiety and anguish. I believe that a compassionate, non-judgmental, and affirming connection with a therapist can be a crucial step toward relief from distress, enriching relationships, and enhancing quality of life. The most powerful therapy happens when you as a whole person -- your life story, your background, and your identities -- are welcome. I am here to explore all of those experiences with you. From there, we can draw connections together, which can help you relate to yourself and others in new ways.
I work with adults seeking therapy for a variety of reasons; my specialties center on navigating life transitions, traumatic stress, grief, and loss. In therapy, I will work collaboratively with you to generate a treatment plan that balances evidence-based practice with a personalized approach tailored to you.
In order to determine if working together will be a strong fit for you, I offer a free phone consultation so that we can discuss your reasons for seeking therapy and your goals for treatment. Please send me a message or give me a call if you are interested in becoming a client or with questions about the practice. I look forward to hearing from you!
