My Approach to Helping
Seeking therapy is less about ‘fixing’ ourselves and more about learning to acknowledge discomfort. This is so we can unlock barriers that may be getting in the way of living the life we want. We learn to give ourselves permission to heal and grow because we are worth it, though we do not always believe this. Whether you are navigating shame and self-judgement, anxiety or depression, the effects of trauma, or craving a deeper connection with yourself and others, my therapy style is that of a deep commitment to holding space for you to explore, and when you feel ready, heal discomfort and connect to your true self.
Therapy works best when it is collaborative, which is why I weave various treatment modalities into my approach, including psychodynamic, CBT, DBT, and EMDR. Some of my specializations include working with trauma, anxiety and depression, and individuals who struggle with chronic shame or experience shame for specific sexual behaviors.
Taking the steps toward therapy is not often easy. I have such admiration for my clients for taking those steps and showing courage in doing so. It is an honor to ride alongside you on this journey with thoughtful and engaging guidance.
