My Approach to Helping
We all go through seasons of life in which we need help navigating through challenges and dark times. I help people wrestle with the pain that has brought them to therapy in order to overcome it and live the life they want to live.
In counseling, we work together and build off your strengths to address the challenges you face. Our work is collaborative and encouraging, but at times I may be more directive and challenging.
Our work together in counseling is conversational and casual. We will work together to establish your goals for therapy. Each week, we may talk about whatever is most pressing to you, but I will ensure that we are consistently working toward your goals. I encourage you to take an active role in our work together: to ask questions and honestly share your thoughts and feelings. Most issues that are related to a limited situation can be addressed with short-term therapy. When exploring more complex issues, counseling may take longer.
My work with individuals includes working through depression and anxiety, coping with adult ADHD; healing from abusive relationships; recovering from divorce or infidelity; and working through a period of adjustment when you would like to work on who you are.
