My Approach to Helping
I specialize in working with children, teens, and young adults who are experiencing struggles with identity development, low self-esteem, difficult life transitions, challenging family dynamics, andor symptoms of depression, anxiety, and trauma. I am passionate about helping individuals explore all aspects of what makes them who they are. Many people come to therapy with mixed feelings and assumptions about the therapeutic process. My goal is to create a warm and nurturing space for individuals to explore themselves, build insight, and incorporate positive change in their lives.
I utilize a collaborative, client-centered, and integrative approach in working with clients. Some of the modalities that I use in therapy include components of mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), family systems therapy, and trauma-informed practices.
Therapy is not always an easy process and often involves the exploration of challenging thoughts and emotions. I respect your process and courage as you make the decision to embark on this journey. It can be an invaluable experience. If you choose to proceed on this path in therapy, I look forward to helping you discover your own inner resources and strengths.
