My Approach to Helping

Everyone has the capacity to grow and change at any time. Some days we can give it 110%. Some days good enough needs to be good enough. Sometimes we need to know when to give ourselves a break. Finding this balance can be our toughest challenge. We are often our toughest critic! I believe that some of the most important work we can do in therapy is to make peace with ourselves and our inner critic, but also know that many people come to therapy when they are feeling so overwhelmed that getting through the day can feel daunting. My work helps clients incorporate seamless habits into their existing routines so that they can feel some quick relief from stress and anxiety and have tools that they can easily use to relax when needed. As they start to feel better, we work on increasing self-understanding and recognizing patterns to make sustainable life changes. Confronting our inner critic in therapy can be hard work and scary at times but is worth the effort!

More Info About My Practice

I take a collaborative approach in my work and believe that you are the best expert on yourself. Together, we will develop a treatment plan that will help you reach your goals in a way that best fits your needs. My overall therapeutic approach is relational, where my goal is to help you gain a better understanding of the way you perceive things and react in relationships and draw connections to how your past experiences may impact current your current situation so that you can sustain lasting, improved change. This can be accomplished through Talk Therapy, Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), HeartMath self-regulation techniques, or a combination of all of these methods.

While making a sustainable change may take a little time, I understand that, like many people, you may be starting therapy at a time when you are really struggling and want to feel better quickly. To help speed the process along, I will provide you with mindfulness techniques and coping skills that fit within your lifestyle in our early sessions so that you can start to feel better and be able to focus your time in therapy addressing the underlying issues that initially triggered your symptoms.
