My Approach to Helping
“Together we will cry and face fear and grief. I will want to take away your pain, but instead, I will sit with you and teach you how to feel it.”- Brené Brown
We are often met with experiences in life that shape us and create patterns of responding to our environments in both healthy and unhealthy ways. We may feel alone in moments of darkness, confusion or in the presence of the unknown; you are not alone! We will work to trust the process of sitting with the uncomfortable, embracing uniqueness and vulnerabilities and identifying thoughts and feelings that prevent us from seeing our best selves.
Areas of focus include life transitions, grief, death, loss, anxiety, depression, self-identity, LGBTQIA+, self-esteem and self-criticism, relationships, career and trauma. Therapy can be a space to feel seen and heard in ways that honor our truth and develop self-acceptance and belonging through courage in understanding our humanity and the ability to change.
My goal for each therapeutic relationship is to encourage authenticity and support individual strengths and goals in a safe, empathic, and non-judgmental environment to help create awareness, acknowledgment, acceptance, and clarification. If this feels like a good fit please email or call to schedule an appointment. Take care!
