My Approach to Helping

Struggling with being away from everything you know for the first time can be a terrifying feeling - especially if its at a time where everyone expects you to be excited. How are you supposed to be excited when everything is new and overwhelming? Instead you might feel anxious, stressed, and like no one understands.

However, you are not alone - I've been there too. Whether the transition you're facing is starting college, starting a new job, engaging in a new relationship, or something else entirely, I want to help you face the challenges that come with change. Asking for help is hard, and that's why taking that step alone is such a big deal. Congratulations for making it this far!

I have always wanted to help others, and my own experiences in therapy have shown me the difference that helping someone explore their past and mental health can have on a person. I work with my clients to help them understand how relationships and thinking patterns impact who they are at this time. Being able to sit in silence while people process things helps me to not rush anyone past what they are ready for. And my love of sports and games helps me to relate to younger kids - I do my best to bring in topics that they love so that therapy feels a little less scary for young ones.

And if you are facing anxiety or depression, despite feeling isolated, please know that you are not alone. I will use our time together to help you feel less alone in session and develop techniques to help yourself feel less isolated when you are not in the office.

More Info About My Practice

In my own journey, I have experienced a multitude of transitions, including moving out of state, moving from place to place in Florida, and all the challenges that accompany being a college and graduate student. I have written about several of the topics these experiences taught me about, available by clicking through to my website using the button on this profile.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

How hard is asking for help? Sometimes it can feel like pulling teeth, right? That alone is evidence of the strength that it takes to reach out, especially for assistance on something as personal and vulnerable as struggling with your emotions or relationships. Finding new ways to manage struggles is a strength, something that we are not always ready for. Making the decision to ask for help is the first step in a process of moving forward, and I would be honored to accompany you on that journey.
