My Approach to Helping
My approach to helping people is relational, non-pathologizing, instilled with hope, collaborative, active, and appropriately challenging in a respectful way to help you in setting and meeting your goals. I bring a multi-cultural awareness and sensitivity in understanding your subjective and unique personal experiences.
In developing our therapeutic alliance which is essential to our work together, I will provide a sensitive, thoughtful, genuine supportive presence with openness and positive regard, a place where diversity is embraced, a place where you can feel truly heard, understood, and acknowledged with acceptance and without judgment. Within this safe, empathic space, you may discover, articulate, experience, and honor your feelings and experiences as well as heal, increase self-awareness, tap into your innate abilities, strengths, and resilience to navigate current challenges you may be facing, or highlight the choices and opportunities available to you in realizing change and personal growth at work, play, and in your daily life.
I have experience working with individual adults, couples, adolescents, and older adults. It is my honor to accompany you on your courageous journey towards lasting positive change and increased personal fulfillment.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy can be a source of emotional and therapeutic support as well as a positive and enlightening experience. At a pace that is comfortable to you, we can work together on difficulties or concerns you may have with interpersonal relationships, issues faced by couples such as lack of emotional intimacy or infidelity, realizing your authentic self, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, chronic anger, grief and loss, pet loss, including those losses associated with transitions and life stage stressors (e.g, "empty nest", change in parenting roles, "mid-life" dilemmas, career change, retirement, and aging).
Psychotherapy can also help as you endeavor to live a "lived" life with more purpose and meaning, or if you are feeling stuck and seek support in overcoming obstacles or help in resolving reenactments to move beyond the replaying of "old scripts" and familiar patterns that are no longer useful to you, or help support you in addressing cross-cultural diversity issues such as seeking personal freedom and authenticity in your life amid cultural norms and expectations.
