My Approach to Helping
How can you possibly figure out how to find the right therapist when you are in the midst of a personal struggle? It is one of the most daunting aspects of self care, yet the connection you make is probably the most important. I have grown my practice by joining those who come in to talk about their experiences, and providing feedback regarding issues. My office is never a place of judgement, but one of safety, confidentiality, and freedom to express whatever it is that lives inside you. It is your space.
I work with adults, teens and their families, and couples to help foster self-understanding and more productive communication. We don't have the power to change the people around us; we can only change ourselves and our responses to life's challenges. We may not be able to "fix" the problem, but let's sit down and talk about how to tolerate the feelings that come up when we have to face it. It is a sign of great strength to reach out and ask for help. So many of us think that we have to do it all on our own, but having an empathic ear, a space to scatter it all out and look at it objectively can truly help to put life's challenges in perspective, and work them out one step at a time.
