My Approach to Helping

My first goal as a therapist is to provide a safe & supportive environment for my clients, many of whom express feelings of depression, anxiety, anger, or "stuckness" about where they are in their lives, often in response to relationship, family and/or work and career issues. I work collaboratively with them, helping them to explore thoughts, feelings and relationship patterns; to discover their strengths and resources; and to develop strategies for managing anxieties and building resiliency while they change, grow and work towards renewed connection and more meaningful relationships. I use an integrative approach, selecting what will be most helpful for each client, drawing upon my training in family systems therapy together with cognitive and mindfulness approaches. I see my role as therapist to be that of supporter, teacher, coach, listening ear, sounding board, and mirror. I am also multicultural in my approach. This means that I address and value the larger family and social contexts and the different world views, religious/spiritual beliefs, values that my clients bring to the table. I welcome clients of diverse racial, ethnic, gender, socioeconomic, sexual orientation, and cultural backgrounds.
