My Approach to Helping
Welcome. I’m glad you’ve taken this step to move forward in your life. We all experience places in our lives where we need support, new skills, in order to move beyond where we are, which often is causing pain in our lives.
I bring experience and a strong skillset to our sessions, having worked with my clients around depression, anxiety, relationship bumps, childhood issues, social anxiety, difficulty managing emotions, avoidance of conflict, and feeling stuck. In addition to traditional therapy skills, I integrate breathing skills, relaxation skills, and the practice of mindfulness into our sessions. Often, your ability to learn how to slow things down in a stressful situation, as well as staying totally present on what is happening rather than thinking of the worst scenario, is helpful and begins to allow you the opportunity to make changes in your life.
I realize that the relationship I create with my clients really impacts their path forward. It’s important to feel comfortable, heard, and not judged, in order to openly explore your thoughts and feelings, and begin to take some risks by thinking and behaving differently.
A good fit is important, so I offer a complimentary phonevideo consultation. It gives us the opportunity to talk more about your focus, you can experience my style, and I can share ideas of how I could work with you.
Everyone is at a different place when they take this first step. I find that I work well with clients who want to move beyond venting and are ready to create real change in their life. I bring experience, a belief in your ability to make positive change in your life, and a willingness to accompany you on the journey.
