My Approach to Helping
You can feel better, and you deserve an approach that works for you. To promote psychological well-being, 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. Therapy is tailored to meet you where you are. After all, you are the expert of your own experience, and I value the unique background you will bring to our work. Together, we will work to accomplish your treatment goals and release what no longer serves you.
Whether you are healing the past, struggling in your artistic endeavors, building your self-worth, or desiring more intimacy in your relationships, I will help you explore the many ways into healing. Symptoms like anxiety and depression can often be the doorway to further exploration. Through therapy, it is possible to experience psychological relief and a higher quality of life. You are courageous in taking the first step on a journey that I believe will transform your life. You matter, and how you feel matters.
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.
