My Approach to Helping

I believe that people respond well to genuine empathy offered strategically in conjunction with unbiased and objective reflections that are rooted in non-judgmental acceptance and respect. I think that people have what they need to advance toward their own personal definition of contentment and healthy well-being. Therapy is a tool that can be used to help with healing, clarification, to find resolutions, improve skills, foster insight that leads to long-lasting change...and so much more! My hope is to be of service in a way that brings about personal growth and progress in my client's life.

More Info About My Practice

Therapy does not require that one is ill; nor is being ill shameful. Therapy is just as much a preventative measure as it is a responsive one. I truly believe therapy is a necessary investment in oneself that can be useful at any point in life. Mental health is no different than physical health and I advocate for prioritization of both. I strive to foster autonomous health and wellbeing no matter what the presenting issue is for clients that come in.

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

Would you ever call someone weak or flawed for going to a routine office visit with their primary care provider? How about if someone who was experiencing symptoms consistent with a virus chose to schedule a visit with their provider to treat their symptoms and hopefully get them to go away? Mental health can be viewed in the same way; both routine "check-in" appointments and more targeted, intentional visits to decrease unwanted symptoms and side effects of various degrees of life stress and disrupted mental health, are common!

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

I remember once visiting with a new therapist for the first time, and I immediately found myself saying, "I would never tell her that..." in my head. I had to remind myself that this was the first visit and that we had no relationship yet, hence me feeling uncomfortable with the vulnerability. That being said, it is much more difficult to practice and experience emotional and psychological health if a person doesn't somehow manage to "connect" with and be comfortable opening up to their therapist. The relationship you have with your therapist is one that relies on honesty, willingness, vulnerability, acceptance, safety, etc. Look for that type of alliance development early on in the therapeutic process.
