My Approach to Helping
*Offering both in-person & video sessions*
Welcome! I’m so glad you are exploring options for support. It can feel intimidating reaching out for the first time, or finding a new therapist and I’d like to make it as comfortable as possible. Are you struggling with a transition, experiencing the loss of a loved one or a relationship, or perhaps have lost touch with your own sense of joy and vibrancy? During this time of Covid-19 crisis, our most vulnerable selves are exposed. Individuals with trauma histories may be feeling especially challenged. Couples might be struggling with increased mood swings, irritability, isolation, or lack of privacy. I am here to help you manage these feelings, come together, and find common ground.
FOR COUPLES: Do you want to find the person you fell in love with, but doesn’t seem to be there anymore? Do you feel more and more distant from your partner each time you continue to argue about the same old things without any change? Are you close to giving up and feel like nothing will ever change? In our sessions, you can expect to defuse the conflicts as we begin to understand what drives them. I specialize in providing therapy for individuals and couples who wish to make positive and lasting changes in their lives and relationships, grow and develop, for themselves and those they love.
As a psychotherapist, the most important thing I can offer you is a safe, compassionate and supportive space that allows each person to feel heard and validated. Collaboratively, we will unpack the challenges you're facing and create insight around patterns that no longer serve you. Therapy can help to bring you to a new place of understanding, perspective, inspiration and purpose. My intention is to provide you with the tools to live a life that expresses your deepest values. In the face of distress, living from your values will enable you to lead a meaningful life and to be the person you want to be. I especially enjoy working with teens, adults, couples and groups and because no single approach is right for everyone, I have trained in and use a balanced blend of client-centered and empirically-based approaches to help you reach your goals. My training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Gottman Method, Brainspotting, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprogramming (EMDR) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), helps me customize a unique path towards healing fit for you!
I know how hard it is to ask for help, so the fact that you are looking is brave. You deserve a life that is filled with joy and happiness, fulfilling work and relationships. I'd like to help; I have immediate openings and I offer a complimentary consultation where we discuss your concerns and you can see if I am a right fit for you and your journey. Why not start today?
