My Approach to Helping
I believe that therapy is a leap of faith taken to explore ourselves, where we’ve been, where we are, and where we hope to go. It can be a scary leap to take, but I make it my goal to support clients every step of the way along their own individual journey. This step into the unknown can be scary - even terrifying - but I feel that through open communication and exploration, these steps can become powerful, moving, and exciting. I believe that every individual has unique needs when it comes to engaging in therapy and I work with every client, family, or couple I see to tailor treatment to their specific needs and adjust accordingly.
I feel that art is an incredibly powerful form of expression and can allow us to gain insight into ourselves that may not be obtained through talk therapy alone. I intertwine art-based therapy into my style of talk therapy and work to engage in the creative process often during treatment.
Through my practice, I strive to create a safe and accepting space for all clients. I pull from my own lived experiences in order to connect and empathize with my clients and create a connection that will hopefully lead to insight, growth, and meaningful change.
