My Approach to Helping
Deciding to engage in therapy is a difficult decision and can leave someone feeling anxious and nervous, especially during the initial stages of finding a therapist that you feel comfortable working with. My goal is to provide a comfortable and safe environment for you to explore your mental health andor substance abuse concerns. I will offer you a judgement-free zone, incorporated with compassion, empathy, and understanding to support you through your therapeutic journey. I want to help you heal and re-energize by becoming aware of your strengths, helping you learn from your struggles, aiding you in healing from your pain, and working towards finding your authentic self. Together we will customize an individualized treatment plan according to your personal goals. This will include identifying your symptoms and examining your triggers, followed by developing positive and healthy coping skills to aid in managing your symptoms and triggers. Whether you are struggling with life transitions, stress, grief and loss, or more severe mental health concerns, I am ready, willing, and open to help.
