My Approach to Helping
People often ask what to expect when they come to therapy. What I can tell you is what you can expect from me as your therapist. Every therapy is tailored to the unique needs of the person with whom I am working. I do my best not to place restrictions on or boundaries around what might emerge for your therapy. As we build a working relationship together, I will listen to you, your feelings, and your experiences with respect, curiosity and care. I will do my very best to meet you where you are today. If you are unhappy with where that is, we will work together to understand what brought you here and how you might move forward.
My practice is grounded in a relational psychodynamic perspective, which places the relationship between therapist and client as the primary vehicle for change. I have experience working with a diverse clientele, many of whom struggle with trauma related to their race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, or history of substance use.
