My Approach to Helping
I provide a safe, nonjudgmental atmosphere where clients can connect to their inner compass and work toward a more fulfilling and purposeful life. Embracing a collaborative, strengths-based perspective, I draw from various therapeutic approaches tailored to the values, needs, and goals of the individual. In session, clients can expect to be met with the utmost compassion and understanding. I do not see clients as a diagnosis, a set of symptoms, or a case to be “solved,” but rather a growing, evolving, and intricately developing human who will only blossom when met in a warm and trusting atmosphere. Although we will explore and process areas of pain, sessions will be paced with concrete practices that immediately increase feelings of wellness, leaving clients not only with more capacity for daily life but also possessing new coping skills to carry with them for life. This emphasis on creating more stability and empowerment for the client provides the foundation needed for deep and lasting change.
The relationship that we create in our sessions is vital. Much of the wounding we experience in life is relational, and it can be particularly intimidating to open up to someone new. I appreciate the courage it takes to be seen and the willingness to share in vulnerability. I want to assure prospective clients that a safe container is created and prioritized in every session. Being with people as they share their most vulnerable moments, times of profound beauty and devastating loss, is an honor that I hold so very delicately.
It is my belief that although we all encounter times where we are weighed down by these conditions, we also have the ability to change our story, overcome behaviors that no longer serve us, and strive to become our highest self. It is so important to find an appropriate match for our healing endeavors. If this sounds like a good fit, I so look forward to working together.
