My Approach to Helping

I believe that life happens to all of us -- that is to say that we can't avoid or change negative experiences such as heartbreak, loss, or tragedy. I also believe, however, that we can change how we respond to these events to either move toward or away from our values. I believe that, if we can align our behaviors to what truly matters to us, we can in so doing increase our life satisfaction and reduce our suffering. In other words, life-induced heartache may be inevitable, but suffering is not.

My goal as your therapist is to help you recognize how your actions align with your values, and help you find the willingness and motivation within to align them as much or as little as you want. I will also give you tools and resources for those times when the urge to act opposite of your intentions arises.

My sessions are usually a blend of practical exercises and talk therapy; however, they will always be based on what goals you establish. I see myself as a partner in your care, rather than an expert telling you what to do. After all, no one knows you better than you do.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

When I was younger, I had two different career paths in mind. One was mental health, and the other was journalism. In college, I ultimately chose to pursue a career in the mental health field, but I never lost that journalist part of myself either. What I truly wanted was to hear people's stories and learn about their lives. I feel grateful that I am able to listen to my clients' stories and bear witness to their strength and resiliency. Everyone deserves to be heard and fully known, and to do that is my greatest joy regarding being a therapist.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

What I most need to know as your therapist is how you define "the problem," or your reason for seeking therapy. In order to fully address your concerns in therapy, I will need to know how long the problem has been a concern and how much it affects your life and your overall happiness. Some people are afraid that they will be asked to divulge their "deep dark secrets;" however, I will never force you to share anything that you don't feel comfortable discussing.
