My Approach to Helping
I understand that being a human is complicated and that we are multifaceted. Sometimes it can be hard to make sense of how you are feeling and thinking. You may have a nagging feeling that there must be more to life than this. You might be grappling with a life-altering loss, a life transition, illness, family conflict, and the end of a relationship. You may be navigating new roles and identities as step-parent, spouse, and caregiver. Grief, depression, and anger have left you feeling groundless, hopeless, and stuck.
In therapy, we discover that it is often the most challenging and painful times that lead to the deepest reservoirs of truth and resilience. You will find that you are more than you think you are. Anger can be signaling us to pay attention to something we have ignored for too long. I will help you to explore whatever arises with curiosity.
As a therapist, I am warm, curious, and engaged. I know it is not useful to give you the answers or try to fix problems. Instead, I am there to help my clients to go inward to discover greater truth, power, acceptance, and wholeness on the other side. It can be intimidating to reach out for therapy. Committing to yourself might feel like a big risk. Therapy is an investment in you and the life you have been yearning to have.
