My Approach to Helping
The path to healing is journey, and it is different for each person. I am honored when I am selected to help others along this journey. My goal is to make my office a safe space so that others can share their thoughts, feelings, and vulnerability without judgement. I am an integrative therapist as I am able to blend different techniques as needed to meet my client’s needs. I work with each client to design a treatment to fit their unique needs and goals.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy looks different for each person. In general it provides a safe space to address problems, whatever those problems may be. Maybe that problem is that an individual just needs that safe space. By utilizing that space, one may gain a sense of safety, process their problems, or learn coping skills. Each individual?s experience in the space may be different as their problems and goals will be different; however, psychotherapy helps each person in a similar way by helping individuals experience a greater satisfaction with life.
