My Approach to Helping

At some point in our lives, we may face challenges, overwhelming decisions to make or we just need an impartial person to help us process our experiences. Seeking out therapy does not mean that you aren't strong enough to handle the issue; instead it shows that you are motivated and determined to find different ways or solutions because those that you've tried may not have worked so far. Everyone likes feeling heard and understood and my approach to provide the space for that to happen in a supportive, non-judgmental and encouraging way. The idea of change can be scary and daunting and for that reason, I will go at your speed and help you take the steps that you are ready to take. I can offer new approaches to dealing with obstacles, different perspectives and I can impart different "tools" to understand and manage your thoughts and emotions. My approach is eclectic but primarily humanistic meaning my aim is to help you develop a stronger and healthier sense of self.

More Info About My Practice

I frequently use several evidenced-based practices including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing (MI), which means that they have been researched and therefore found to be effective.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

The therapeutic relationship is considered to the best predictor of change for persons engaged in therapy. What that means is that you may find therapy much more useful and effective if you have a therapist whom you trust as genuine, non-judgmental and can connect with. Therapy is a brave step so it makes sense to want to start the process with someone who appreciates that and goes at your speed. I highly value the relationships I have with those I work with and want them to understand that the therapy session is not about me and if there is an approach they find that might be more useful to them, I am happy to adapt my approach to fit your needs.
