My Approach to Helping
All of us at one time or another are faced with difficult and challenging situations in our lives. These situations can often appear as relationship problems, depression, anxiety or just feeling empty or stuck and unsure how to change. Reaching out for help through a supportive therapeutic relationship with me can be the first step to help you improve your life and become unstuck. I offer psychotherapy for adults and adolescents who are experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, postpartum depression, and substance use issues.
I believe the past lives on in the present and our earliest life experiences and important relationships provide a model for how the world works. Many times, we continue to apply old patterns to new situations, even when they no longer work or cause great pain. It’s natural to keep doing what we know. Working together in an environment of safety and trust psychotherapy with me offers the chance to explore, understand, and change your life.
Together we’ll explore what’s getting in the way and look at the underlying patterns and reasons you are experiencing these symptoms while identifying your strengths and building upon them. I use an insight-oriented approach to help you gain a deeper self-awareness and provide an opportunity to explore emotions. Whether you are dealing with a major challenge in your life or you have issues from your past that keep bothering you, I can help. Let's discover the source of your stress, self-doubt and self-defeating patterns and we'll work on changing them.
