My Approach to Helping
I believe that we all have our own shine. Our work together would first be to identify factors that have been dulling your shine, and explore ways to polish it off so you can strut your stuff! Integrating approaches that allow you to build a deeper connection to yourself, I will assist you in developing a better understanding of the emotional, psychological and social roots of your concerns and how to address them. Psychotherapy is a collaborative process, so as a team, we will co-create a meaningful course of treatment and planning that best suits your individual needs. Even if you are not quite sure what you are looking for, but know that you need a change, we can do this!
More Info About My Practice
You are the expert in your life and I have the tools to help you make sense of what may be going on. Having the support to actualize your goals and dreams is important. I provide a safe, welcoming and non judgemental environment where you are free to express yourself. This space will be your canvas to explore and experiment with different ways to bring your vision to life! I use traditional talk therapy and if you are someone who is interested in using a more artistic way of working together, I also use other methods such as creative writing, creative movement, drawing and more. To learn more about this, feel free to send an email, text or phone call and we can further discuss how to best support you!

How Psychotherapy Can Help
We always hear about having confidence and a good self esteem, but where does this come from? Truthfully, this can be answered in a variety of ways. In short, both are influenced by outside factors (i.e family, friends, partners, society), but the value we place on these outside influences can dictate how we ultimately understand ourselves. Self esteem has more to do with how we feel about ourselves, like self worth and confidence refers to how we feel about our ability to do things. Having low self esteem and little confidence can translate to a negative relationship you have with yourself and snowball into your relationship with others. Sometimes because we see ourselves or capabilities in a negative light, it may prohibit us from perusing the things we want. As a result, we may be too fearful to ask a person on a date, ask for a raise or promotion, apply for your top school or program, speak in public, wear that particular type of clothing that you like or do other things. Through therapy, you will be able to identify the things that may be keeping your self esteem and confidence down. Working with me, you will be able to establish what you would like to change and we can find the right treatment plan for you! We are all different and I do not operate from the "one size fits all" philosophy. Each person comes with their own story and I value your uniqueness.
