My Approach to Helping
Only you live in your own head and you are the only one who can truly explain your experiences. I'm here to give you a safe, neutral outlet to discuss your concerns and help you make your ride a little smoother. I believe creativity and flexibility are important parts of the therapeutic practice. I want to work with you (or your child) to identify roadblocks and reach your personal goals. When working with your child, my goal is to build a therapeutic alliance so that they feel comfortable confiding in me. I also make sure to spend time with parents as well to keep you engaged and informed in the therapy process. Therapy can be hard work and is uncomfortable at times. Just like practicing a new skill or exercising, that struggle can help us grow and improve.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
I have worked with several people who had a negative first experience with therapy. It's wonderful that you are giving it another try. I know that starting this journey can be anxiety-inducing. In therapy, I recognize that it's not about me and the focus is on you and your needs. If something isn't working, tell me. If you feel you need more support in one area or another, I'm open to feedback. Therapy is a collaborative process and if you're not getting something out of it, keep moving on until you find someone who is a good fit for you. It's important that you feel comfortable confiding in me in order for therapy to work.
