My Approach to Helping
I specialize in helping women turn their lives around! Together we look at what isn't working in their lives, and figure out how to make the changes that are needed. From early childhood, women are socialized to always be focused on the wants and needs of others. They're often not even aware of what their own needs are. Too many women feel selfish when they spend time and energy on themselves. This lack of self-care and attention to their own needs can lead to illness, problems with their relationships at home and at work, and a general feeling of unease and unhappiness.
My greatest gift as a therapist is my ability to make therapy feel safe to my clients. They know I am not there to judge them. I am there to listen, to give suggestions, to help them decide how to move toward their goals, and the to support their growth. My calmness and gentle encouragement create a sense of emotional safety, as they learn and try out new ways of being.
They begin to feel an increase in their physical and emotional well-being. Life starts to become more manageable, and then satisfying and joyful. I love what I do, and I love being a part of my clients' overall growth!
