My Approach to Helping
Are you always the “responsible one”- constantly giving to others until nothing’s left for yourself? Frustrated that you keep finding yourself in the same relationship ruts? Have a hard time expressing your emotions? Are you a couple struggling with communication? Is your teen anxious and overwhelmed? Feel like pain from the past is sabotaging your life today? If you can relate to any of these questions, I may be the therapist for you. My approach is client-centered which means I offer practical tools and proven strategies tailored to YOU and the challenges you are facing. You just start to feel better and more hopeful. You stay in the driver's seat of your healing journey as you clear away the blocks and limiting beliefs that stand in the way of a happy, thriving life and relationships.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Someone recently asked me what my favorite part of being a therapist is. My response surprised me. My favorite part of the therapeutic experience is the first session. I believe it is an incredibly courageous act to seek out support. We often enter someone's practice with more questions than answers... Will therapy actually work for me? Will we be a good match? The list goes on. As new clients enter my practice I love to see their shoulders relax as they settle into the space. I see hope come back into their eyes as they find understanding and compassion. Couples and families who haven't been able to sit together without getting into an argument often leave the first session feeling a little more open and reconnected with one another. Connecting with a therapist who gets you and offers tangible solutions to ease your suffering can feel like coming up for air. Again it all begins with that first step of reaching out for help. It's the first step that can take our lives and relationships in a whole new direction.
