My Approach to Helping
Searching for a therapist and starting therapy can feel overwhelming. Whether you are experiencing stress related to work, life transitions, or relationships, the therapeutic process is here to provide an outlet for you to process your emotions and find relief.
I provide a comfortable, confidential environment where we can work together, explore your concerns, and reach your treatment goals. My therapeutic approach is relational and collaborative. I help individuals and couples with various concerns who are looking to improve their lives. For some, this means overcoming anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship challenges, or low self-esteem. Others may feel vaguely empty, unfulfilled, or stuck.
I have experience working in a variety of capacities, ranging from community mental health, on-call crisis treatment to private practice. My clinical interests and specialties are in relational difficulties, anxiety and depression, trauma recovery, grief, and loss, as well as life transitions.
I also provide Sandplay therapy for individuals. There is no particular skill or knowledge required in order to participate in Sandplay therapy. This is an option for patients who want to explore other avenues of expression and self-discovery. Our minds can sometimes block what we are feeling as a way of trying to protect or avoid feeling pain and discomfort. This can make it difficult to articulate what we're feeling. Sandplay therapy provides a platform for individuals to process their emotions through visual expression, and possibly reveal feelings that have been suppressed.
