My Approach to Helping

As a therapist, I believe a critical component to the success of therapy is the therapeutic relationship itself. I strive to create a warm, friendly environment for my clients to explore their difficulties and challenges. My approach is to view each person as whole and worthy of happiness and joy. I work collaboratively with each client to build on their strengths and life experiences to improve their situation. Sometimes having a quiet, non-judgmental space to explore patterns and habits assist us in moving forward. I utilize many counseling tools and techniques dependent on the personality and needs of my client. The world can be a busy, noisy place. Therapy can allow the space and quiet needed to facilitate self-improvement. Please call me to see how I may be able to help.

More Info About My Practice

I have extensive experience working with grieving children, adolescents, and adults. I have also been a school counselor at both large public schools and small charter schools allowing me insight into challenges and struggles for students within these environments.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

We all experience times in our lives when we can use some additional support. Therapy does not have to be a "forever" thing. Many of my clients come to therapy to assist them in developing skills and learn new tools to get through a storm they are facing. Some come to therapy to have a space to process emotions they have held onto for a long time. Practicing self-care is another reason to attend therapy - sometimes we have to make sure we are healthy and whole before we attempt to take care of people we love and meet their needs. Attending therapy is not a sign of weakness, but a sign that you care about your wellness and mental health enough to get assistance from experts in the field.
