My Approach to Helping
Trauma, anxiety, grief and loss, depression, relationship issues, infertility, feeling stuck, career stress – these are some of the things that we experience as humans that can keep us from living the life we want to live. When these feel overwhelming and we feel stuck in patterns that aren’t working for us, therapy can help. I do primarily talk therapy, but I'm also trained in more experiential therapies, like EMDR and IFS.
I work with my clients in a collaborative way that treats you as the expert of your own lived experience. You have a right to feel accepted and understood for who you are. Everyone experiences life in their own way and deals with the ups and downs in their own way. Sometimes these coping strategies work. Sometimes they come up short. When they’re no longer working for you, we can talk about why this might be and what other strategies may help you move forward. If you’re stuck in a pattern and feel like you’re treading water, we can explore ways of changing direction that feel right for you. If you're ready to address a past trauma in your life and want a safe place to do so, we can explore this together.
I strive to build a trusting, caring, and supportive therapeutic relationship with my clients so that even when you feel that the world is against you, you can remember that there’s someone rooting for you.
