My Approach to Helping

Offering a compassionate space to share your concerns, my approach to therapy is nonjudgmental and supportive. My goal in therapy is to help individuals process their story, overcome challenges, achieve personal growth, and become empowered beings. To reach this goal, I consider your social, emotional, and cultural background in order to fully understand your needs in the therapy process. I consider the most valuable element of therapy to be the genuine and respectful relationship between client and therapist. I truly enjoy working with others and am passionate about helping individuals move towards wellness and resilience.

More Info About My Practice

I work primarily with emerging adults, adults, and older adults. Many individuals I work with are experiencing issues such as grief, trauma, abuse, sexual abuse, relationship issues, stress, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Being a psychotherapist is a rewarding career. My practice has allowed me to build meaningful relationships with a variety of people. While I love getting to know all of the individuals I work with, the biggest reward is watching people transform from a place of brokenness to that of resilience. The work we do in therapy is collaborative and can be considered a "seed for the future". Watching clients break from maladaptive patterns and embrace change is what I truly love about being a therapist.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

The process of therapy can not be rushed. As a general rule, I suggest that individuals attend sessions once a week for the first 6 to 12 weeks of therapy. This allows time to process concerns, review past history, set goals, and adopt behaviors and thinking patterns that help you achieve mental well-being. Over the course of therapy, time between sessions increases. For example, a client will return to sessions every two weeks. As progress continues, sessions can be reduced to once a month. As therapy sessions wind down, the therapist and client will discuss what works best for the client and their needs. Sessions may end altogether, or clients may come on an as needed basis. There is not one "right" way to approach the therapy process. Duration and frequency of therapy can only be decided between the therapist and client.
