My Approach to Helping
I believe that most people can benefit from therapy at some point in their lives. Whether you struggle with persistent, troubling thoughts or feelings, are overwhelmed by events that are out of your control or just want to get in touch with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in your life, therapy can help. I specialize in perfectionism, trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, depression and life transitions.
My approach is relational, warm and direct. I believe in meeting clients where they are, focusing initially on helping them to feel relief and containment for whatever they may be struggling with. We then work together to better understand feelings and patterns, to heal from unresolved traumas and to find a deeper sense of purpose in their lives.
The current state of the world is having a profound impact on our mental health. Harrowing times can, however, uncover possibilities for reflection and growth, if we are able to make meaning of our experience. Therapy provides an opportunity to listen to, contain and learn from intense emotions while also uncovering inner strengths and resiliency.
