My Approach to Helping
After 18 years in practice, I know that you likely have been dealing with your concerns for some time. I offer a safe, supportive, and compassionate space for you to gain insight and understanding, and to find healing and resolution. My style is relaxed, conversational, nonjudgmental, and patient. I will listen as you put words to your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I will believe in you and the emotional work you are brave enough to take on, knowing that you are exactly where you need to be and are moving in the direction intended for you.
I think healing happens in therapy by giving pain a voice, holding a gentle, tender space for it, validating its existence and understanding where it came from. I think things surface in our lives when they do because we are ready and equipped to heal and learn. Trusting the wisdom in ourselves is important, in fact, trusting and believing in ourselves is not only an outcome of healing, it facilities healing. I feel honored to be in a position where I am a witness of this sacred process in people.
