My Approach to Helping
You deserve an approach that works for you. As a therapist, I provide client-centered, compassionate care, built on a relationship that allows my clients to be seen and heard. I work from a trauma-informed lens, and my mission is to create a safe and nurturing environment for healing and discovery. You can feel better!
I believe the mind and body play a critical role together on the path to psychological well-being. Therefore, neuroscience, mindfulness, and somatic awareness (information your body may be sending) are important tools in my work. Clients are supported by a range of theoretical approaches, including psychodynamic, self-psychology, client-centered, relational, attachment-based, LGBTQIA+ Affirmative Care, and CBT. Therapy is tailored to your needs and meets you where you are. After all, you are the expert of your own experience.
Sometimes, your path can appear obscured. When life stressors, challenging relationships, and symptoms like anxiety or depression show up in our lives, we may feel paralyzed on how to move forward. We may also be confused as to the origins of these painful thoughts, feelings, and emotions. You are courageous in taking the first step on a journey that will transform your life and illuminate the road ahead. Together, we will work to discover the steps forward and release what no longer serves you.
