My Approach to Helping
Our life experiences often impact the way we perceive ourselves, communicate with others, and even how we think. Maybe you are finding it difficult to recover after a disagreement with a loved one or your partner and can't seem to figure out why. Maybe you have noticed that you spend most of your free time worrying about social interactions, your health, or everything you can think of, and it seems like nothing has helped to stop it. Maybe you recently went through a breakup and have found it difficult to process how you feel about yourself and look forward to your new future. You are left feeling hopeless, frustrated, and defeated.
Together, we will work as a team to navigate these issues. We will explore your emotions, identify a potential root cause or pattern that has come up in your life that may be contributing to the problem, and identify helpful tools for you to use in your communication not only with others, but with yourself. I have almost 5 years of experience working with couples and individuals on these topics, and my approach is warm, friendly, casual, and non-judgmental. I will highlight your strengths in session, especially in moments where that inner critic tries to take over, and ensure you are in a validating and empowering environment. I use a combination of evidence-based therapy modalities, mindfulness, and a conversational approach to structure our therapy sessions.
Finding the right therapist can be overwhelming. I invite you to chat with me for an initial consult to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about the process, as well as determine if we would be a good match to work on your goals together. One of the most important aspects of therapy is the relationship between the client and therapist.
