My Approach to Helping
I practice collaboratively with my clients to help you connect with your strengths and with your inherent capacity for growth and change while working through life's challenges and suffering. I believe attending to emotional wellness is an essential part of living a healthy and fulfilling life and helps us feel more connected to ourselves and to others. I also believe that growth happens best within the context of a trusting, supportive therapeutic relationship. My approach incorporates elements of cognitive, humanistic, mindfulness, and interpersonal therapies, and is guided by your individual needs and goals. If you are looking to find support in your relationships, work/life balance, life transitions, or are struggling with anxiety, depression, perfectionism, stress management, pregnancy, or postpartum issues, please consider reaching out for support. I am happy to provide a free consultation.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
It is important to know this - there is no problem too big or too small to talk about in therapy if it is causing you distress. Life is challenging no matter who you are, and sometimes it throws us curve balls. If you have been trying to address an emotional issue and are feeling only limited progress in using your internal resources and/or the supports around you, I feel it is important to explore other avenues of support, therapy being a valid and potentially quite helpful option. I believe we are all worthy of this step.
Sometimes not solving a problem on our own or not being able to feel better on our own can generate thoughts of self criticism and perceptions of being defeated or weak in some way. If this is the case for you, I urge you gently to consider the strength it takes to ask for support and the potential short and long term benefits of getting the support you need. It is human to need support sometimes, and you may be pleasantly surprised at the internal strength you uncover in the therapeutic process.
