My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 15 years of experience providing impactful, intelligent, and compassionate therapy to clients of varying ages and presenting concerns. I utilize a collaborative and engaging style to create a space for therapy to become an expansion of how clients perceive their struggles in a broader view. I endeavor to have therapy as a safe and supportive experience; I also balance this with the challenge of an invitation to stretch into personal change and growth.
I utilize and am informed by a variety of clinical orientations including, but not limited to, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Existential Therapy, Mindfulness, and Trauma-Informed Therapy. I have particular areas of experience with trauma, grief and loss, life transitions, managing anxiety, depression, relationships, self-esteem, communication issues, and self-identity issues.
I utilize a strength-based approach and emphasize respect for the process of therapy and maintain the philosophy there exists the potential of deep healing all clients hold within themselves.
It is my role and responsibility to be the very best steward of this process I can possibly be for this important work clients are doing of self-discovery.
