My Approach to Helping
I am a warm, energetic, attuned therapist who is passionate about working with individuals, couples and families. My approach is strength-based, collaborative and tailored to the needs of each client or family. Therapy is a place to make meaningful changes in our lives, reframe our narratives and better understand ourselves in the context of a safe space. My aim is to help you strengthen your relationships through better understanding the patterns that frustrate you and help you develop new ways of relating, creating more connection.
I blend therapeutic approaches to best fit your need and work from a psycho-therapeutic approach including a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and trauma-informed lens. I am an LGBTQI affirming, anti-racistanti-oppressive, body positive therapist. I encourage anyone who is curious about working with me to schedule a free phone consultation!
More Info About My Practice
I specialize in grief and loss for individuals in their 20s and 30s. Grief is not linear and something we simply "get over." This desire to prematurely find closure can lead us astray.Our work together will allow you to find meaning in life after loss, while navigating the unique pressures of dating, establishing a career, and maintaining a social life.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
To me therapy is a warm, nonjudgmental environment where people can focus on their personal needs, reflect and grow. Therapy is a place where people can feel listened to, acknowledged and heard without having to censor how they feel for fear of upsetting their family or friends. I believe that talking is cathartic. Therapy also helps people better understand the messages they tell themselves, where these messages came from and how these messages may be impacting your self-esteem and interpersonal relationships. I also believe that therapy allows clients to better understand how they operate in relation to others and how patterns of relating can impact emotional well-being.
