My Approach to Helping
Do you wake up and struggle to get going with your day? Do you have unhelpful thoughts or emotions that make you feel stuck or helpless? Maybe you have felt like giving up because nothing seems to help you feel any different. Everyone has the desire to feel secure and connected but this task can feel impossible when you are fighting your own internal war.
I take a compassion-based therapy approach applying CBT techniques to help reduce anxiety, depression and trauma symptoms. My primary goal is to create a safe, judgement free space for you to be honest and raw while fostering growth. I specialize in working with individuals and families struggling with intergenerational trauma and the symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and relationship struggles.
My clinical experience includes working with diverse populations in a school setting and in private practice. My passion for mental health is rooted in my own struggles with severe anxiety and past trauma. I believe so many of the issues that we face are rooted in our childhood experiences, past and present relationships, environmental factors and societal pressures. While it’s impossible for any of us to completely control our circumstances, I can help you learn to control the thoughts and feelings that drive your responses and interactions with the world around you. Learning these skills will help you build healthier relationships and live the life you desire.
