My Approach to Helping
The foundation of my treatment philosophy is fostering a sense of self-empowerment alongside self-compassion. I always aim to provide a relaxed, emotionally safe environment, in which the full range of your experience can be explored without fear of judgment.
I strongly believe that all thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; even those which have become distressing or problematic, can help us learn critically important information about our needs, values, identities, and what changes might need to be made for us to become the healthiest version of ourselves, and must, therefore, be approached therapeutically with respect and genuine curiosity.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Everyone has struggles in life; including therapists and all other people who might not seem like they do. Yet not everyone is able to admit to them and seek help. The ability to identify a problem and do the hard work to change it is actually a sign of a person who has self-awareness, drive, responsibility, and the courage to confront their own vulnerabilities, instead of pretending to be perfect.
