My Approach to Helping
I am excited and honored to be your co-pilot. My goal is to be a trusted confidant, where we can explore your concerns, desires and aspirations in a safe, non-judgmental and compassionate space. You are the driver in our time together and we move at the pace you’re comfortable with. Honesty and transparency are very important. In working with me, you will always have an authentic, genuine and personable therapist.
We all have strengths and we are all more resilient than we think. I work with clients to identify a safe zone within themselves through Mindfulness and Interpersonal Neurobiology. Then drawing on elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, ACT, Existential and Adlerian Psychodynamic Therapy we develop a better understanding of yourself, your core values and what areas of your life you are wanting to impact. Lastly we work on the application of new skills and education to your life and relationships, modifying as we go along. Occasionally worksheets and homework will be offered to assist. I am profoundly interested in utilizing your strengths and maximizing that resiliency.
It’s no easy decision to move toward change, it takes courage and a willingness to self-reflect. Congratulations on taking the first step in building a richer and more fulfilling life. Therapy can foster skills to cope with personal difficulties or help heal wounds from our past. It can empower you to see your life journey in a more meaningful way, developing insight into your choices and relationships along with cultivating self-awareness to better manage hardships down the road.
