My Approach to Helping
At times, experiencing painful feelings, managing stressful situations, life transitions, and/or dealing with relationship conflicts, whether romantic or not, may hinder us from feeling happy, capable, and empowered to live our lives to the fullest. During such struggles, the guidance of a caring professional can be helpful.
I will provide and facilitate the development of a non-judgmental and empathic therapy environment. In this fashion, your exploration of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors and their underlying meanings are fostered. Through our interdependent and supportive relationship, you can feel safe to explore, increase self awareness and become more insightful of your individual and familial patterns and coping styles which affect your daily life. You can feel empowered to choose to continue or learn to adopt new ways that lead you towards an improved life and a stronger sense of self.
I am available for individuals needing assistance during difficult life transitions, dealing with painful feelings, with relationship issues, parenting issues, communication difficulties, managing feelings of anger, suffering a loss, experiencing depression, or feelings of fear, anxiety or panic, struggling with eating disorders or other addictions, dealing with traumatic events, individuals who are judgmental towards self and at times question self-worth, and those who have the desire to increase self awareness and to build a stronger sense of self.
