My Approach to Helping
Are you feeling anxious, stuck, or lost? Have you ever experienced messages growing up that were impactful and prevented you from developing confidence? Do you struggle with believing you can accomplish goals that matter to you? Or maybe fear or past experiences have made you scared to try new things or meet new people? These kinds of challenges can feel lonely and overwhelming. Trying to work on these things can feel uncomfortable. Yet here you are researching options anyway and hoping change is possible. There are lots of reasons to hope you can feel better and experience positive things in the future.
I specialize in working with adults, teens, and children with anxiety, ADHD, and trauma. The clients who work with me are often looking to increase calm feelings, confidence, change, and healing in their lives. Therapy is an amazing way to do this! Finding a therapist who is a fit for your needs and that you feel comfortable with is a very important first step.
My clinical style is warm, safe, flexible, supportive, and empowering. I believe it is important for us to figure out your treatment needs together, identify your strengths and challenges, and work towards goals that matter to you. When working with children and teens I often use creative, fun, and active therapeutic strategies if this is a fit for their personality and needs. I also sometimes use these strategies with adults who find this helpful.
