My Approach to Helping
My style as a therapist is characterized by warmth, creativity, honesty, humor and openness. Starting therapy for the first time can be scary, it is not easy to reach out for help. No matter what you are dealing with my goal is for you to feel safe and to support you in reaching your goals. No matter what you are struggling with, whether its grief, anxiety, troubles in your relationships - with your partner, children, work relationships, childhood abuse, health problems, eating disorders - I know that the process can be painful, but when you come out the other side it is so worth it.
It takes courage to change old patterns and build new ones and I feel honored to work with the clients I have been blessed to know. With over 30 years experience, I have many tools for you to try and can help you develop and deepen already existing skills. I see my role as one of supporting you on your journey and actively engaging with you. We help you find and use your strengths, learn new tools and follow your internal wisdom.
It is my personal experience that everyone has a deep voice inside that leads to health, healing, growth, joy, peace and contentment. At times, we feel disconnected from this source. I love working in partnership to help you (re)connect to this. Each moment offers the potential to be fully present. In recognizing our thoughts, feelings and experiences as valid, we discover that all of our experiences have something to teach us and in doing so we become more fully human, more fully ourselves.
