My Approach to Helping
I believe my compassion and yearning to best understand my clients helps me create a positive therapeutic relationship that cultivates a space for healing and achieving goals. Emotions are a huge piece to a fulfilling life, and can also be very difficult to navigate and understand. I believe that it is through our emotions we communicate our needs that are both met and unmet. My goal as your therapist would be to help bring understanding to what those needs are whether it is in a romantic relationship or within yourself.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I specialize in relational issues. This could look like constant fighting with your significant other, not understanding emotions from you or your significant other, or having trouble keeping significant relationships in your life. Specifically I have a passion for helping couples better understand their unmet needs from one another. This has also trickled in to my work in helping individuals outside of couples therapy understand their own unmet needs for themselves that usually affects all of their relationships.
My Role as a Therapist
When I think of my role as a therapist I think of pointillism art. This type of art is the technique of many small dots put in a pattern to make a picture. When looking at pointillism art up close, it is nearly impossible to tell what exactly the picture is. It is only when you take a step back that you can see the picture. I believe my clients start off in therapy only able to see the dots. My perspective is at a distance where I can see the picture more clearly and it is then that I help my clients "take a step back" to gain a perspective that allows them to also see the picture more clearly. I find that my role as your therapist is active, but I am also very aware and attuned to allowing you to be the leader in your own healing and change.
