My Approach to Helping
Our office has immediate openings at our Ogden location. Did you know that the relationship between a client and their therapist is one of the most important factors in the success of talk therapy? The relationship is called the "therapeutic alliance" and it should feel like you and your therapist are both on the same team and invested in your success. For this reason, I invite you to be picky about your therapist! I am always happy to have a quick conversation with you prior to meeting. No subject should be off limits in a safe therapeutic alliance.
Once you’ve taken that difficult leap to ask for help, the last thing you need is to find out in your first session that you just don't vibe with your therapist. Oftentimes people have this experience and then just give up on therapy. Please don’t give up on yourself! My approach to therapy is genuine. I will give you actual skills and concepts to use.
I will support and validate you and help to strengthen your powers of healthy discernment so that you can gain clarity. I'll help you examine your feelings, decisions, relationships, and skills. I will strive to be your caring (and trained and educated!) touchstone to help you find peace, joy, and authenticity in your life. We can figure this out together.
