My Approach to Helping
Many of my clients feel anxious or lost going through their daily lives, whether it's at work, at home, or within interpersonal relationships. This can manifest as intrusive thinking, depression, feeling disconnected from oneself and others, and having difficulty making change. I specialize in helping clients identify how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all interconnected, as well as looking inside to deepen self-awareness and understanding. I provide feedback, support, and guidance that help clients see into their inner worlds and better understand how they can improve their sense of wellbeing.
My approach to therapy is multifaceted and integrative, ranging from exploring childhood to developing skills to manage current relationships and stress. I take clients through conversations about their past ways of navigating the world and encourage introspection about how they may be connected to the present. I explore the beliefs you may hold about yourself and the world (including spiritual beliefs), as well as more existential questions such as how you make meaning of your life experiences. I am also mindful of providing trauma-informed care for those who’ve previously experienced traumatic or adverse events.
