My Approach to Helping
As a therapist, I believe mental health is not the absence of mental illness but rather the presence of balance, acceptance, and the self-efficacy to believe one can work through uncomfortable emotions and handle whatever may come.
You deserve a process of self-discovery, healing, and growth. My goal is to guide you through this process while providing support, warmth, and the tools necessary to navigate through your most challenging periods.
Together, we will take inventory of each aspect of your life as it is right now and explore in which areas you want to see a change in order to create the life you want. Our work together will not only provide insight into your challenges but also highlight your inherent strengths and positive attributes. I want to help you recognize your full potential so that you are not just surviving but thriving.
I tailor my approach to your unique needs and circumstances to provide the most empowering and effective care. I appreciate your unique inner world and strive to provide you with the profound understanding you deserve. I want to offer you more than just temporary relief but rather a deeper healing process to help you move forward.
I believe the most important relationship is the one we have with ourselves. Taking the time to understand yourself, your drives, and your triggers is essential in making the changes necessary to live conscious and fulfilling lives.
Learning how to nurture compassion and accountability within is the first step in building a foundation for healthy relationships with others.
As human beings, making connections with others is a vital part of life. When we are whole within ourselves, we can cultivate lasting, profound relationships with others based on love instead of attachment. In order to connect, we must communicate effectively; in order to communicate effectively, we must master the art of perspective-taking, active listening, and open expression of our thoughts, needs, and emotions without the fear of judgment.
Choosing a therapist is a deeply personal decision; I offer a free initial consultation to give you a sense of what it would be like to work together and determine if we would be a good match.
