My Approach to Helping
Getting started with therapy can be really hard. Sometimes our lives are really busy and we have many items on the to-do list. A lot of times, our mental health can be the last priority. We live in a culture that doesn't value our mental health, as much as other aspects of our well-being. If you are interested in taking back your mental health and wellness (and other areas)- I would like to help.
As your therapist, I like to explore what's working for you and what isn't, expand coping skills, and examine the level of fulfillment and contentment you find in your life. I want to help you make the most of our days- whatever that means for you!
More Info About My Practice
I am 100% virtual at this time. I assume that will change eventually, but I do not have any definitive answers about the timing. And can discuss this in more detail during the first session or consultation.
My Role as a Therapist
I see my role as a therapist as being two-fold. There are some aspects of my approach that are constantly in flux, while some very important themes remain completely, constant. I think one of my greatest strengths is my ability to be flexible in session. However, my empathy, compassion, understanding, warmth, and knowledge- based on the research are unceasing. I really listen to each person in my office for what they are looking to get out of therapy and that remains omnipresent in our time together. I believe each person is their own expert. No one knows your life as well as you do and I merely want to be invited in to see how I can help make things a little or a lot easier.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Starting therapy is one of the bravest things you can do for yourself. I am always so honored to be sitting across from someone who has taken the step to get to know themselves more deeply, someone who has decided to let an inner wound be exposed and allow it the space to heal.
