My Approach to Helping
My goal when working with people is to help them achieve their best quality of life. I do this by highlighting peoples' strengths and assist them in navigating through their challenges, in a collaborative approach. As a marriage and family therapist, I understand that our experiences shape who we become and our relationships can show us more of who we are and why we connect with others. It is my job to work with you in order to help you navigate through lifeâ€™s uncertainties, and challenges as they arise. The study and practice of marriage and family therapy is unlike any other in the psychotherapy field, in that we focus on the systems that are present in our personal lives, as well as the lives of the people we serve. In addition to my skills and training doing individual and relational work, being a trauma informed marriage and family therapist, has equipped me with a skill set that can assist clients identify trauma responses and learn tools to help you find peace.
