My Approach to Helping

I believe that all people have a natural tendency to strive towards becoming their best possible selves. As a therapist it is my job to help you to get "unstuck", motivated, and walk with you on your path to becoming your best possible self.

As a therapist I am very warm and welcoming. I strive to create a safe and caring environment for my clients to explore their issues. I primarily practice from attachment based theories like Imago, object relations, and Emotion Focused Therapy. These approaches focus on important relationships in your life and the natural human need to feel loved and cared for by those we love. Part of this means that when working with me, you and I get to have a real relationship and interact with each other in a more open and genuine way, rather than me being an all-knowing professional who you know nothing about as a person.

Please give me a call for a free phone consultation.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

When choosing a therapist, it is important to find someone you feel you can connect with, trust, and feel comfortable with. This is something that people often under-appreciate. Numerous studies have shown that one of the most healing/therapeutic factors in therapy is the relationship between the client and the therapist.

When you find a therapist who is a good fit for you you should feel:
-listened to
-comfortable talking with your therapist
-like you and your therapist are building a good rapport
-like your therapist has accurate empathy towards your feelings and experiences.
-and you will likely find yourself talking about things you don't normally talk about.

These things should all be evident by the end of the first couple of sessions and often times people will know/get a feeling that a therapist might be a good fit in the first phone call or session. It's all about feeling supported, like what the therapist has to offer is what you're looking for, and if you feel like you can build rapport with the therapist.
