My Approach to Helping
My approach in working with people is individualized and tailored to what will best fit each clients's needs. This may even change from session to session depending on where one is at. Thus at the beginning of a new therapy relationship I spend time in session talking about what you might be looking for in a therapist and what your goals are for therapy. I find in doing so we are able to start forming a trusting and collaborative relationship that allows for healthy communication, thus ultimately leading to a positive therapy experience which allows you to make the changes you what for yourself and your life.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
We all rely on others for help and at times seeking psychotherapy can be an ideal place to receive that help. It provides one with a trusted space to meet with a therapist that is neutral and non-judgmental. Within this unique relationship you can open up and share what might be most important to you and work on creating goals of change. Therapy can work at very specific targeted goals or more open ended self-enhancement and everything in between. Ultimately psychotherapy can be the tool to make the changes in your life that you have been struggling to do so on your own and to do it with someone that is on your team.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
Therapy allows one to open up and share whatever they might need to in a safe and trusted environment. The therapeutic relationship can provide many things depending on what one might need - empathy, support, listening, trust, encouragement, challenging, and reflective. I adjust my approach given what your particular needs are and meet you where you are at. This collaborative approach to psychotherapy allows each client to get their needs met and work at their own pace while challenging themselves to grow, change, and enhance themselves.
Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
I always talk to new clients about their past experiences if they have been in therapy before. I love hearing that people have had positive experiences in the past; yet at times I often hear about negative ones as well. I like to spend time understanding what has not been helpful to past clients and how we can make our therapy relationship different than any they have experienced in the past. I take a collaborative team approach with my clients and feel that open, direct, and respectful communication between us allows for better treatment outcomes and client leaving therapy with a more positive experience.
