My Approach to Helping
Do you worry constantly, feel on edge with just about anything or have a persistent fear of failure or judgement? Feeling like you’re not good enough, not living the life you want to live, or that you’ve lost touch with the things that bring you happiness with little hope that you can live life in a fulfilling way? Have you had a traumatic experience that left you feeling disconnected and having a hard time trusting people, with the need to protect and numb yourself? These things can impact our physical and mental wellbeing, keep us up at night, make us feel disconnected from the people closest to us and reduce our ability to achieve what we want in life.
I may be able to help. I have experience guiding people with these concerns to make meaningful changes to increase their satisfaction with life and improve relationships. People I work with often report increased ability to recognize and respond more skillfully to life’s stresses. A sense of confidence, contentment, hope, fulfillment, safety and stronger connections with your important people is what I work to achieve with you.
One of the most important predictors of positive outcomes in therapy is the therapeutic alliance, or the partnership between therapist and client. Therapeutic alliance means shared decision-making, mutual respect, non-judgement, empathy and understanding in the therapy room. I focus heavily on these elements so we can work smarter and not harder and to create an alliance that produces the results you want in therapy.
