My Approach to Helping

What if I told you that:
Therapy can be common sense, practical and direct?
That we hold the answers for our own suffering within ourselves?
Learning to treat ourselves with kindness can help us to open up--even fearlessly embrace-- our own pain.
This can be your approach to change and help cease your struggle with anxiety, depression and all (the worries, discomfort, void and fear) that come with it.
Self- compassion is the answer.

Benefits of Self-Compassion:
• Increased overall well-being
• Greater life satisfaction, self-worth, resilience and motivation
• Decreased anxiety, depression and fear of failure
• More social connection
• Less Burnout

My Therapy Focus

I am a social worker and believe in social justice, dignity and worth of my clients. The perspectives that heal us are not those that we are commonly taught at a young age--and are not reinforced in society. In the current socio-political climate, I am finding that we need mindful self-compassion and a connection to our own meaning more than ever. Depression, anxiety, worries, negative thoughts, shame, self-blame are issues that are overwhelming. We learn to isolate, shame ourselves and self-harm instead of: connecting with our own humanity, identifying what is important to us and learning to open up and even embrace our discomfort. This can help us relate to ourselves more positively. This can improve our overall sense of well-being and is a foundation for good mental health. If you feel lost, don't know who you are anymore and overwhelmed by self-critical thoughts this is a good place to start. If you're ready to take this journey, I am here for you.
