My Approach to Helping

Are you experiencing emotional pain, discomfort, or are currently facing a huge life challenge? Are anxiety, depression or parenting concerns weighing you down?

If so, therapy is an opportunity to get support with these difficult emotions or experiences, find meaning in your life and make changes to create the life you want to live. I approach therapy in a collaborative, authentic, and intuitive manner. Each client I see has within them the tools they need to heal and my role is to help you discover what your unique tools are.

Therapy is also an opportunity to find a balance between your mind, body, and spirit and grow toward a more authentic life. Authenticity is important because it's about finding who you really are and living in a way that aligns with this. Often when we feel overwhelmed, worried or depressed our thoughts and feelings can seem like they are controlling our lives. Part of therapy is learning to understand these thoughts and feelings in order to take back control.

More Info About My Practice

While I work with a wide range of issues from anxiety, depression to relationship skills, my practice has two main areas of focus. The first area of focus is working with young adults in their 20s or 30s. The second area of focus is working with parents in a variety of ways including parent counseling, coparent counseling or family therapy.

My Role as a Therapist

In therapy my role is to help guide you toward balance between the mind, body, spirit and environment. My goal is to help you gain self-awareness and learn coping strategies to deal with any issues you may be facing. A large part of therapy is working with your thoughts, feelings and behaviors, specifically looking at how they're impacting your life. Another main focus is to decrease the level of distressing emotions you may be experiencing.

What Makes up a Problem?

This is a great question to ask and it can be difficult to know when to label something as a problem. Two important questions to ask yourself are:
Am I in distress or overwhelmed by negative emotions such as sadness, anger, or dissatisfaction?
Are aspects of my life (i.e. work, school or relationships) being negatively impacted?
