My Approach to Helping
Therapy begins with a meaningful connection: You should feel heard, valued and appreciated by your therapist. I listen carefully and ask questions that help you gain a deeper understanding of your feelings, thoughts and beliefs. My office is a judgment-free zone where you can explore the issues that are causing you stress, unhappiness or frustration.
More Info About My Practice
Ideally, therapy should be a process of ever-deepening conversations that promote insight, acceptance, and clarity. The process can help you have greater compassion for yourself and a better understanding of how to live in a more satisfying way. Learning the reasons that you may feel stuck, sad, anxious or depressed can be extremely liberating.
In addition to my training in psychotherapy, I am a certified yoga teacher and a journalist specializing in mental health. When patients are interested, I teach mindfulness skills andor provide writing assignments to reduce stress and deepen insight.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I became a therapist because I believe we all have the potential to grow into better, more satisfied versions of our selves. My goal is to help you identify how you want to live and the blocks that are preventing you from getting there.
