My Approach to Helping

I believe therapy must start with a good relationship with your counselor. Without enough trust, comfort, and enjoyment of your counselor, it is difficult to begin the work. My hope is that you experience counseling as an open place as well as reliable as this is the foundation of where growth and healing occurs.

You get to decide what it is you want to talk about in our time together. Often what I do is reflect on, almost as a sounding board, what you are processing. The intention is to help you understand things just a little differently so that you can address parts of your life in the way that feels best to you.

While sometimes I bring guidance, my hope is to help use you and/or your family's strengths to guide your decision-making. I have my own cultural lens, values, and perspectives and this looks different for each person and family. We are all unique and, as a counselor, I get to participate in individual's and family's process of becoming 'the best you.'

Teenagers
Families/Parents
Transitions into Adulthood
Third Culture Kids (TCKs) adults and children

How Psychotherapy Can Help

We are such social beings. One of the places I work on a lot in counseling is relationships in your life - the ways you relate, understanding dynamics within the relationships, and learning about the kinds of relationships in which you are drawn. In thinking about relationships, you begin to develop self-awareness, relational healing, and find more satisfying relationships in your life.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

When entering counseling, there are a number of needs people have at different times in their lives. Sometimes what we need for a wound is Neosporin and a band-aid. Other times, we need to go in deeper, performing surgery or ongoing adjustments. The Neosporin and band-aid approach is where you'll find more short-term, behavioral focused therapy. I generally work as an in-depth counselor and long-term. This usually looks like weekly 50-minute sessions, but the frequency and duration can increase based on needs.
