My Approach to Helping
Is life feeling like too much to handle? Are you struggling with your own emotions or in your relationships? As human beings in a fast-paced modern society, we are all faced with daily challenges and stressors. Some of us can navigate these issues on our own and others require a bit of professional support. I encourage clients to view therapy as a journey we embark on together. I have experience working with clients of all ages, and I welcome anyone who is looking to explore ways to improve their quality of life, whether it is due to life transitions, relationship conflicts, past trauma, or managing emotional challenges.
As we engage in a therapeutic journey, we will work together in the following ways: -Identify and build on strengths - collaborate to develop new skills and solve problems - enhance your confidence and sense of wellbeing - improve your connections and relationships - explore barriers to reaching your personal goals and creating the life you desire.
Each person\'s journey is unique, which is why creative and affirming treatment, with a variety of therapeutic approaches, designed just for you, has great potential to help. Things can indeed improve, and healing is possible. I look forward to helping you overcome your struggles. Please call me with any questions, or to schedule a consultation.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
At Center for Mindful Change, we see coming to therapy as meeting a couple of different needs in a person?s life or relationship. The first avenue that many people come to therapy through is when they are in a crisis or at their wit?s end in dealing with their particular issue or concern. This type of therapy tends to be time-limited and resolved more quickly. Think of it as going to an immediate care center. The second avenue of therapy is more like having a primary care physician. We don?t wait until we are in a crisis to see our primary care physician. We go to be proactive and stay healthy. Many people choose to have a ?primary care therapist.? This is someone that they have come to know and trust, and that knows them and their story well. They walk with you through your life?s journey. They are a part of what helps you stay healthy and be the best you that you can be. (Btw?this is true of therapists as well! Therapists go to therapy just like they go to the doctor.)
It is our belief that YOU are the expert. That means you remain in control of the whole process of therapy. If you decide you?re not ready, or don?t want to talk about something in particular, that decision will be respected. Everyone is unique, and your therapy will be tailored to fit you every step of the way.
Once you choose a therapist to work with, we recommend you attend three sessions. We have found three sessions to be a good indicator for whether to continue, or make a change. As you go along during the three sessions, give your therapist honest feedback so that they may have a chance to possibly alter their approach or method to better accommodate your needs.
