My Approach to Helping
It takes strength and courage to enter into therapy. In response, I provide a safe, empathetic place where you can explore what is troubling you without feeling judged or criticized. I do believe that each of us has inner wisdom, clarity, strength and compassion, but we often don't feel it or have access to it. My job is to help you identify and heal those obstacles such as fear, anxiety, hopelessness or a sense of unworthiness or shame that block you from your deepest wisdom and from living a full life. In accompanying and guiding you on your journey, I facilitate your accessing openness and self compassion to heal those parts of yourself that block you so you can experience relief, healing, personal growth, satisfying relationships and a more fulfilling life. Our work is collaborative in nature, and conducted at a pace that you as the client set. I am passionate about my work and have undergone substantial training and supervision as well as my own therapy in order to provide the highest quality counseling services.
