My Approach to Helping

Hello, and welcome to my page! I work with people who have a wide variety of conditions stemming from relational and environmental stress. I believe that we are naturally programmed to heal, but often we rely on past coping skills that are no longer functional, and this blocks the path to healing. I think every symptom once served a purpose and that change can occur by looking at how and why these symptoms developed, while at the same time trying new behaviors.

I have a direct, non-judgmental and caring style, intermingled with humor. I strive to create a compassionate atmosphere where you can allow yourself to be vulnerable and have that met with respect and validation. I work hard at viewing each person through the lens of their own experience, rather than using my own framework to decide what is healthy or not. In order to do this, I thoroughly interview you about your past. I examine how it shaped you, your emotions, your thoughts and the way you interact in the world. We’ll also explore how this plays out for you in the current day. I welcome clients of different ethnicities, cultures, religions, sexual orientations, nationalities, and abilities and am always eager to learn about areas I’m not as familiar with.

Clients whom I’ve worked well with are often experiencing issues such as relational problems, work stressburnout, life transitions, low self-esteem, emotional abuseneglect, childhood traumainjuries, worksecondary trauma, anxiety, depression, and self-sabotaging behaviors. My approach to therapy primarily incorporates interpersonal and family system techniques, but I can also utilize EMDR, CBT, Gestalt, Attachment, and Trauma-based therapies. I’m able to work with clients who enjoy homework and structure as part of the therapy process, as well as clients who enjoy a more fluid approach. For those who want structure, I usually provide writing or behavioral assignments that specifically target the issues that you are working on. My focus is to help you achieve the changes that you want in your life so that you can obtain the goals that are meaningful for you.
