My Approach to Helping
Welcome to my profile! I enjoy working with individuals that are engaged, energetic, and eager to start the therapeutic process. I find insight and willingness to change as important parts of beginning therapy. During sessions, I will create an open and nonjudgmental space to help you explore, problem-solve, and process your concerns. I apply skills such as mindfulness and grounding techniques in session.
Clients that work with me can expect to explore interpersonal processes, set healthy boundaries, advocate for themselves in their relationships, and learn emotional regulation skills toward committing to actions despite difficult circumstances. My style incorporates Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Crisis intervention, trauma, wellness management, and substance use are areas of my expertise. My experience as a clinical counselor also enhances my keen sense of evidence-based practices and interventions.
More Info About My Practice
I have experience working with individuals that are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, and work/life balance. I understand that therapy is a place to share difficult thoughts and to be honest with the self in ways that even the closest of friends may not be able to provide. I believe that therapy is a chance for every individual who takes the path to reflect, process, challenge thoughts, express, share, and grow. I find therapy to be empowering and believe that it helps people to live more authentically.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Attending therapy for the first time can feel scary and strange as you are essentially stepping into the unknown. Those feelings are normal and understandable and will dissipate as you begin to experience the benefits of therapy. Therapy does not hold the stigma it once did and most people know at least one person who has benefitted from attending sessions. People improve themselves by going to a gym, to salons and spas and to physical therapy, for example, why not spend an hour to better your mind and overall mental health too?
