My Approach to Helping
We all have a fundamental need to be heard and seen. Hopefully, if we’re lucky, we have people in our lives who meet this need, at least some of the time. But sometimes it’s necessary to bring in someone extra – either as a resource for safe and private conversations, or as a leader to help us with a necessary change. This is where I come in.
My background balances research-driven and scientifically minded psychology with a holistic, systemic, and presence-based approach to therapy. I use this background to help my clients expand their understanding of self by tuning in to the notes of their experience they may not be used to hearing. For some that may look like guiding a highly cognitive person into their emotional world, and for others that may look like guiding a highly emotive person into a new way of thinking. But whatever patterns you find yourself in, I can be a guide in expanding your range.
Stylistically, I hold an empirically rooted understanding of human behavior with a compassionate appreciation for how challenging it can become to just live in a human body. I also often use humor in my counseling, but have discovered this is difficult to communicate on a website without sounding disingenuous. (Trust me though, I'm funny!)
If this sounds like something you might be interested in, let’s meet. During our consultation, I will get to hear what you’re looking for, and you’ll get to hear what I can offer you, specifically. Visit my website for more information, or reach out through GoodTherapy, and let’s see if I’m the right person for what you need right now.
