My Approach to Helping

I believe that psychotherapy is a relationship rooted in conversation, where healing and transformation can occur because of the brave intimacy it requires. Engaging in this process is a sacred endeavor that creates space for listening and generates a mutual striving to be understood. Such a ritual exists across every culture, because it is a human need to be seen and heard, and to seek meaning in one’s life.

As in any relationship, a productive exchange between therapist and client can only occur when each participant feels safe, seen, and positively regarded. To build this trust, I bring warmth, empathy, reflection, an engaging and interactive style, and a healthy sense of humor to my work. I begin with YOU, the seeker and I meet you where you are when you come to therapy. Together, we collaborate on what you want to understand, explore, shift, nurture, and improve. I carefully listen while also: offering unconditional positive regard and safety to explore complex dynamics, acknowledging the joys and hardships of life, practicing transparency and reflection, and honoring and respecting the strength in people to determine their own path.

To benefit and deepen our work, I draw on my multidisciplinary training, my years of practice, all that I have learned along the way from mentors and patients, and my own experience as a patient (yes, therapists need therapists, too!).
