My Approach to Helping
I know it takes courage to ask for help.
As you read my profile, you may be struggling with feelings of shame, uncertainty, or worry about therapy. You may feel overwhelmed or frustrated in your search for a therapist.
By reaching out to a therapist, you are taking the first step on your healing path toward fulfillment, meaning, and joy.
Therapy may be the key to opening a door to changing unhealthy patterns holding you back from the life you desire to live.
My approach grows out of my passionate belief in the transformative power of relationships. I believe that our early relational experiences significantly impact our future relationships. Connecting with a compassionate therapist, you can heal from the pain of your past, & then open the door of possibility to more gratifying connections with others. A secure, healthy relationship with a therapist is a starting point for building desired healthy relationships in other areas of your life. Together, we will work to increase your sense of well-being, so that you may navigate life's challenges without regressing toward old, self-defeating behaviors.
Drawing on my experience and abilities, I offer a unique atmosphere of safety, trust, acceptance, & compassionate exploration. I am deeply committed to providing an environment where you feel safe to uncover the hidden and tender places in your heart, while partnering with you towards deep emotional healing, growth, & lasting change. Practicing for the past 11 years, I am passionate about creating a process in which the wounds & scars you carry in your heart can heal, bringing forth freedom & wholeness that previously felt out of reach.
I identify with the Christian faith, for anyone who is seeking a faith-based therapeutic process, although my practice is not limited to Christians.
