My Approach to Helping
Healthy relationships are vital. When relationships, whether with partners, family, friends, or coworkers, start to feel imbalanced or exhausting, they can impact how you feel about yourself. Perhaps you feel growing resentment trying to keep the peace. Or notice you are sacrificing too much of yourself to keep the relationship going. Or feel stuck, anxious, avoidant, or a lack of agency.
I work with individual adults looking to strengthen their connections with others, increase assertiveness, set healthy boundaries, and create more fulfilling relationships.
More Info About My Practice
I like to begin the counseling process with a phone consultation (free) so we can get to know each other and determine if we are a good fit for each other. One important factor in successful therapy outcomes is a strong working relationship between therapist and client.
If we decide to move forward, the first session will include some information gathering and goal-setting so we both know the focus of your work moving forward. The focus may change over time, which is why I like to revisit goals for therapy periodically to ensure the process continues to feel valuable and effective.

My Role as a Therapist
My role as a therapist is to use the strengths and resources you carry within you to help you make changes in your life. These changes may come in the form of new thoughts and perspectives, new feelings about yourself and others, or different behaviors or reactions to situations that feel healthier.
Therapy may challenge you in unexpected ways which is why I believe in self-compassion and finding ways to cultivate self-compassion both in the process of therapy and in your daily life.
