My Approach to Helping

I have a client-centered, strength based approach, and use tools from a range of therapy models. I enjoy working with people of many ages and cultural backgrounds. I offer a safe and comfortable space, transparency, and commitment to our therapeutic relationship. My background in community mental health gives me a strong sense of advocacy, and I work with my clients to achieve their potential - and their dreams. EFT "Tapping" is one of the effective skill I share for coping with anxiety and stress, and processing painful and intrusive memories.

Drawing on creativity, coaching techniques, and my own experience in fields of art and music, I relate well to people who are interested in exploring their relationships and expanding their enjoyment of life.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

The best part of my day is when a client experiences their own growth, insight, and satisfaction. I believe that people have many answers within themselves which they can access more quickly by working with a therapist. I love sharing useful new skills or perspectives, and helping clients create an effective plan of action. I provide a safe and respectful space in order to explore how a person can function at their best and enjoy a full, rewarding life.

I am interested in the integration of meditation and mindfulness with recent discoveries in neuroscience, and I enjoy sharing new ideas and resources with clients.

My Role as a Therapist

I am a partner and facilitator to help you articulate your needs and values, manage difficult issues, and make meaningful changes in your life.

I'm very open to questions about the process, goal planning, and feedback. New clients often want to know how long therapy may last. We will address this together, depending on treatment issues and goals, and evaluate as we go along. My intention is for your time in therapy to feel useful and productive!

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

I have worked with many people who spoke about the stigma against therapy in their family, community or culture. I encourage them to define for themselves what brought them to therapy, what they want from it, and then how it helped them change over the course of time. It is a unique relationship and support, offering perspectives that are not otherwise available. I emphasize that it takes courage, not weakness, to face difficult issues. Therapy is not something that is "done to you"; through the collaboration, my clients develop a sense of self-efficacy and improved self esteem.
