My Approach to Helping
You shouldn't have to tackle life's obstacles on your own. Working together collaboratively, my hope is to help my clients understand how they came to be the way they are and create a clear direction to overcome emotional obstacles and uncover strength and resilience. By exploring the past and also working toward a positive future, my goal is to work with one another to reduce guilt, shame and anxiety to be able to ease through life's transitions, overcome ambivalence, make good decisions, and have fulfilling relationships.
I particularly like working with young adults, folks going through transitions, and those who have experienced trauma as a child. I also enjoy working with those who would like to incorporate psychotherapy into one's "self care" routine, as a time to slow down and gain deeper insight into one's own patterns.
My training is in a variety of different types of psychotherapeutic interventions. I use an individualized approach, drawing from relational, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, EMDR, mindfulness and attachment based approaches to meet your needs. Together in our initial sessions, we can discuss what modality might work best for you.
I believe a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship is necessary to achieve optimal results in therapy, so I'd love to speak with you to see if we both think we are a good match. Please feel free to call for a free phone consultation!
