My Approach to Helping
Are you ready to move forward from relationships and beliefs that have not worked for you in the past? Whether you’re moving on from a toxic relationship, you’re battling insecurities or uncertainties that keep you feeling stuck, or you find yourself repeating patterns that don’t serve you well anymore, it’s time to leave those unhelpful people, beliefs, and patterns in your past. Uncover the strengths that have been within you all along and make the choices that are right for you, today and in the future.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
You're not 100% sure if therapy is right for you. You typically feel that you have it all together. You function pretty well in day-to-day life. Yet inside, you don't quite feel like yourself. You're not as happy as you once were; you may be feeling stressed, depressed, anxious, or in grief. You don't have to live with these struggles. Therapy can give you the short-term guidance you need to cope with life transitions, and help you feel the way you used to feel. Or better!
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
Though I have plenty of tools in my therapeutic toolbox, the most important component of therapy is that we're a good fit for one another. So I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to all new clients so we can get to know each other a little bit before the first session. Then, if you decide to schedule a session with me, we can talk in greater depth about your goals for therapy. I believe in a collaborative approach to counseling: we'll start by exploring the challenges that bring you to therapy, and then together we'll find solutions that work for you.
