My Approach to Helping
As a licensed psychotherapist, I work with those who are navigating current relationships and life events with overwhelming feelings of inadequacy, shame, and anxiety. They often have difficulty recognizing their strengths, which interferes with their ability to reach their full potential. Recovery from these patterns is possible. It involves an understanding of early life experiences, and a commitment to developing a more compassionate and realistic view of yourself, and of others. I'm fortunate to have over 20 years of experience providing a supportive and nonjudgmental space for growth in both mental health and medical settings.
Helping you to recognize and use your personal strengths is how I will support you. In our work together, we will engage in creative problem-solving, change unhealthy patterns, and broaden your perspective on your challenges. I am extensively trained in evidence-based, primarily cognitive-behavioral approaches to address anxiety, depression, and trauma.
I look forward to working collaboratively toward your goals in a way that strengthens your resilience, as this is a strong predictor of success in an unpredictable world. My hope is that you'll come away from our work together with a stronger sense of integrity and personal boundaries, capable of sharing your authentic self with others.
