My Approach to Helping
My approach to helping others is through understanding and compassion. Healing is able to show up when someone feels a sense of what Carl Rogers called " unconditional positive regard" and safety. I prefer to meet another person where they are, and together find the solutions to the reasons they have come to therapy. When the emotional part of our life is suffering, all areas are affected. Often we will use a whole-person approach, seeking to find ways to heal the body, mind, emotion(s) and spirit. Additionally we will use a combination of ACT, Somatic, DBT, Mindfulness, CBT, and EMDRtrauma healing strategies to help you feel better.
Reach out today and start your journey to feeling more purpose, peace, and contentment with your life! Feeling better is possible, even in uncertain times.
