My Approach to Helping
I work with individuals and couples working on problems including anxiety, depression, maternal mental health, communication, intimacy issues, recovering from affairs, coping with changes after bringing home a new baby, parenting challenges, adjusting to life changes, and women's issues. I believe that clients already possess the skills and resilience to solve problems and cope with challenges when they arrive to therapy, but that when times are tough, it is difficult to grab onto those skills. Certain life experiences like getting married, having children, or problems in a close relationship can leave us feeling unmoored. Therapy can be an opportunity to recognize areas of your life that need attention, use the strengths that you already have to address them, identify areas for potential growth, and learn new ways to deal with difficult emotions.
