My Approach to Helping

I recently heard the story of a child who loved diving for pennies her grandfather threw in the pool. She said it was too blurry under the water to swim around trying to feel for the pennies. Her strategy was to get out of the pool first, see where the pennies lay, and then dive in to retrieve them.

In therapy you can develop the capacity to pause, step out of the blurry water of your experience, and survey with compassionate curiosity the particular ways you struggle: the self-defeating patterns, the limiting beliefs, the self-protective behaviors, the fear, and depression. Therapy is also a safe place that allows you to dive in, to approach the old wounds and the fresh hurts with a trusted companion and the tools for healing.

My areas of focus include experiences of grief and loss, artist resilience, life transitions, depression, anxiety, and trauma-related stress responses.

I use an integrative approach to suit the work to your particular needs. So much of the success of therapy comes down to the relationship between therapist and client. You have to click with your therapist; you have to like talking to them! I encourage you to take advantage of the free consults to chat with a few of us and see how it feels. I look forward to having the chance to connect with you. If we're not a fit (I hope we are), I'd be happy to try and find a referral or two that might suit you.

Best of luck in your search!
