My Approach to Helping

My treatment approach is warm and collaborative and is best described as "eclectic". I meet my clients where they are at, and endeavor to create a strong therapeutic alliance (trust, safety) as a working foundation. From a place of trust and safety, I work with my clients utilizing the approach and tools that best serve their needs, and adjust when necessary. Many research studies have shown that the most important factor in "satisfactory outcome" in therapy is the relationship the client has with the therapist.
"It is the relationship that heals" ~ Irvin Yalom, Psychiatrist and Existential Therapist
Many individuals feel uncomfortable in the presence of real human suffering. This is not a fault or a defect of character. It is simply a by-product of the culture in which we live. People generally want to help, they simply don't know how. Our culture does not teach us how to bear our own suffering, much less the suffering of others. Instead, no matter what loss an individual might be suffering, there is often social pressure to "feel better" or "move on". The social pressure to "suck it up buttercup" comes at a great cost. Authentic feelings are stuffed and many individuals are left feeling "something must be wrong with me." The tragedy is that the most unifying aspect of the human experience (grief) becomes the most isolating aspect of the human experience.
It is my privilege to be present and bear witness to your suffering; To accompany you as you navigate the messy, non-linear, non-rational, unpredictable, sometimes strangely beautiful, and always very human experience of grief.
In addition to experience working on crisis, suicide and veteran's hotlines, and community mental health, I bring with me 12 years combined volunteer and work experience in hospice where I provided bereavement counseling and spiritual support to both patients and families.
