My Approach to Helping
MY THERAPUETIC APPROACH
There are a multitude of reasons why someone chooses to seek psychotherapy. Many of us seek therapy when stress overwhelms our ability to cope. Troubling relationship patterns may feel impossible to change; professional challenges may seem insurmountable. One may have difficulty making decisions or simply feel stuck. Constant worry, pronounced sadness, and low self-worth can – slowly or quickly – compromise one’s quality of life.
I work with individuals battling with anxiety, depression and other mood difficulties, self-esteem concerns, relationship problems, significant life transitions, family dynamic issues, and relational trauma.
Therapy offers a confidential, safe environment for exploring your concerns in the company of an experienced, attentive professional. Psychotherapy increases one’s capacity for self-reflection and amplifies self-understanding. The therapeutic process nurtures existing strengths and mobilizes one’s capacity to identify and undertake positive changes in one’s life.
It takes courage to seek help from a therapist; I understand and respect this. I approach therapy as a collaborative endeavor. Together, we develop a strong, secure, and open relationship. This relationship allows us to work together to understand and address problematic patterns. I am attentive and curious; I listen closely. I make observations, provide feedback, and challenge your ways of thinking and behaving.
