My Approach to Helping

My passion for being a therapist started from my first experiences as a client 25 years ago. As a young person facing intense grief, loss, issues of purpose and identity, the trauma of a bad car wreck, falling out of love, deciding to temporarily withdraw from college, I found a haven in the work I began with my first therapist. I had no frame of reference for what therapy was. I just knew I was depressed and devastated by circumstantaces in my life and my therapist walked me through it all. She was kind to me, warm, respectful, attentive. That was the beginning of my own recovery and rebuilding of my life. If I saw her today, I wouldn’t be surprised if I saw mirrors of myself in her at this moment, 25 years later. This formed the centerpiece of my desire to help others, as my career.

In a warm, caring & relational environment, you and I work collaboratively to develop insight into their lives and achieve their goals and aspirations. For those who are struggling with immediate and pressing issues such as anxiety, depression, grief & loss, we thoughtfully and gently explore how to become resourced, grounded, and safe while emphasizing the clients’ acute needs. With 16 years of experience, I bring a high level of awareness, compassion and dedication to the people I serve.

My philosophy is that I become your deepest witness. I help you see and accentuate your greatest aspects. I help you find the strength to make decisions that seem impossible in ways that feel smart and informed. The trust and bond we form will ultimately be the key to us walking together through whatever forests of life you encounter.

This becomes the cornerstone of how we actualize their greatest potential. You begin to trust You! That is the intangible that carries with you for the rest of your life: confidence, clarity, decisiveness, reflectiveness, humor, kindness. These are the hallmarks of how you will feel as our work takes root in your life.

More Info About My Practice

I have extensive training in group psychotherapy, humanistic psychology, modern psychoanalysis, structural family therapy and I draw extensively upon how we fit together to help you move forward in their romantic lives. When we work together I am always seeking to help you discover the hidden and unexplored areas of your life to reveal what is truly possible, with the most difficult transitions of grief & loss as well as the endless issues of ‘how do I find meaning, purpose & passion in love and relationship’ and ‘how do I finding meaning, purpose & fulfillment in my work and in my academic pursuits’. I have seen countless people facing these concerns for over 16 years and I am confident you will find me an ally in going for those things that will serve you most at whatever stage you are in life!

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is meeting humans where we are, in the moment, and responding to you with a view, ultimately, towards self-actualization and fulfillment. How we do this is while you are naming your personal life narrative, I am listening attentively to your strengths, assets and aptitudes, so that when you feel ready to make changes in your life I know how to realistically and compassionately walk with you through those transitions. You possess the keys to your fulfillment. You have the ability to move mountains. Sometimes in our lives we need the mirroring and kindness of someone who is skillful and compassionate to help us discover those hidden gems. It?s how I transformed my own life. And it is how you and I will transform yours, together.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

What I love most is the genuine connections I develop with my clients. We laugh. We cry. We feel stuck together at times. In all of my collaborations with clients we truly form an alliance. We are more invested in how you can grow, achieve meaning, purpose and authenticity in your life than emphasizing the negative. It is my experience that when we emphasize what good is already there within ourselves and in our relationships there is less emphasis on the negatives of the ?other?. My practice is unique in that I don?t spend time pushing you to negatively evaluate situations: romantic relationships and work, typically. It becomes evident over time when aspects of work, friendship and romance are meant to transitions, then they transition. This can be seeking greater fulfillment and autonomy in work. It can be deciding to work things out with a lover. It can be the issues we face when we have newborn children. All of it. And my intention is to emphasize the good that is already present within you so that decisions you make become self-evident to you!
