My Approach to Helping
My philosophy in therapy is that you, as the client, define your goals. As a therapist, I do not have a prototype that I am trying to turn all of my clients into. Everyone has their own unique set of circumstances, background, strengths, and weaknesses. My approach is to meet you where you're at, understand what you want to change, and use my skills, knowledge, and experience to help you manifest the change you seek.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
I view the purpose of therapy to be a tool to help you reach toward your full potential. I frame it broadly because the goals you come to therapy with can be quite varied. Whether your focus is very specific or more broad and general, you define the validity of the issues you want to tackle. Simply put, the purpose of therapy is to help improve the quality of your life.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Without knowing what, specifically, is holding you back from coming to therapy, I would say that therapy is a safe space in which you can feel comfortable sharing and discussing things that you don't feel comfortable sharing with anyone else. Outside of a few exceptions, everything you say in therapy is kept private and confidential by me. This confidentiality allows you to open up, share, and process what might be too embarrassing, private, shameful, or ugly to share with someone like family or friends who are not legally obligated to maintain your privacy or act in your best interest.
