My Approach to Helping

We are all inherently predisposed towards growth and development, but depending on our upbringing and other circumstances such as past trauma, our true potential can get eclipsed by internalized ideas, emotions, and blocks that can mask who we truly are.

The good news is that we can reconnect with our innate capacities. Therapy can provide the space nessesary for developing presence of mind, compassionate self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and frustration tolerance among other qualities that help facilitate the process of transformation and healing.

Whether you are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, stress or depression or you are dealing with past trauma, I would love to help you. I can collaborate with you to begin understanding the nature of your difficulties; exploring and uncovering your strengths; and integrating the different aspects of yourself into a cohesive whole.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

It makes total sense that you would feel hesitant about meeting a complete stranger to talk about vulnerable aspects of your life. It is important to respect that apprehension and not jump over it. There is wisdom to it. You can't be expected to trust someone you have never met. Besides, how do you know this person can really help you? You don't.

The good news is that you do not have to commit to the first therapist you call. In fact, I would recommend you call a few providers and interview them over the phone before you make a decision to go to one. It is important that you feel comfortable and at ease with whomever you choose to meet. Also remember that just because you make an appointment does not mean you have to commit to working with that therapist.

It takes some time to build trust and to find out if you and your new therapist are a match. It is important to find out how the person you are meeting with works. Ask them lots of questions about how they work and how they see change happens. Make sure you feel comfortable in their presence, and if it does not work with one person search more. There are many compassionate and competent therapists out there, and sooner or later you will find your match.
