My Approach to Helping

Therapy is a unique opportunity to focus on yourself and begin down the path to a healthy, more fulfilling life. Working collaboratively with a therapist can help you to explore patterns, relationships and ways of functioning that no longer serve your best interest. This exploration can lead to the strength and confidence necessary to make changes and regain control of your life. Therapy is an emotionally safe place that will allow you to heal as you address difficult issues, gain clarity, and become reacquainted with your authentic self.

My approach to therapy emphasizes the value of each person and views relationships as the most important aspect of our lives. Through encouragement and genuine connection, I foster a trusting therapeutic relationship that will help to sustain meaningful change in your life. Therapy will be a celebration of your strengths and an incorporation of the expertise you have about yourself and your relationships as we work collaboratively toward your personal growth.
