My Approach to Helping

I believe that most people have some level of curiosity about themselves. Maybe they don't know why they repeat the same pattern in relationship after relationship or they aren't sure how they keep getting in their own way when they set a goal. Psychotherapy is a unique environment where one can learn how they developed into the person they are today and with that insight find themselves living a fuller, more meaningful life.

As a therapist I encourage individuals to explore their inner life, their motivations and drives behind their behaviors to draw patterns and conclusions about what makes them tick. By guiding you in a non-judgmental way, together we can help you find the life you have always wanted to live.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy is unlike other relationships in your life because you can give and receive feedback in real-time about what you are thinking, feeling and experiencing in our conversation. This often gives clues about what you might be experiencing in other relationships and allows you to bring this insight back into your life, armed with skills and understand to better handle difficult and stressful relationship, workplace scenarios and other situations.

My Role as a Therapist

As a therapist, I believe my role is to support and help facilitate a journey into self-understanding. You may find me encouraging you to think more about a particular interaction, or comment on information that has gone unnoticed. Knowing that sometimes it takes time to talk about difficult topics, I seek to provide encouragement, support and space to understand and repair difficult past experiences and emotional patterns.

Focusing on both short-term interventions as well as building understanding of how you have developed over time provides relief from current symptoms as well as hope for the future and confidence that your goals can be achieved.

My Therapy Focus

I specialize in working with adults and adolescents in individual, couples or family therapy in order to decrease anxiety, increase motivation through depression, recover from grief or trauma and understand and change problematic relationship patterns.
