My Approach to Helping
One of the most meaningful things you can do is to learn to treat yourself with kindness and compassion.
It may seem simple, but bad relationships, traumatic experiences, and difficult life transitions have a way of changing how we think and feel about ourselves - usually for the worse. We too often find ourselves lost in the emotional pain, feeling unfulfilled in our lives and gradually losing hope that things can get better.
But it doesn’t have to be that way! I want to help you feel connected with yourself again. To create those healthy boundaries. To feel unburdened from the weight of the depression and anxiety and anger. To heal. To grow.
As a therapist, I strive to establish a space of trust and compassion, and I’m ready to work my absolute hardest to help you meet any of the goals you set for yourself in therapy. I believe it’s important to have a relaxed, conversational environment that allows us to tackle the more challenging topics with a sense of security and (if we’re lucky) enjoyment at overcoming those emotional obstacles and regaining a sense of fulfillment in your life. While painful at times, I do believe the journey of therapy is the one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, and successes of all sizes are meant to be celebrated.
I know starting therapy can feel intimidating, but I hope you’ll take a moment (and possibly a deep breath) to reach out for a free phone consultation and see how I can help you. I am currently accepting new clients and offer sliding scale rates.
