My Approach to Helping

LIMITED FRIDAY AVAILABILITY - I am honored to promote and guide the personal discovery and inner healing of clients with difficulties including depression, anxiety, trauma, parenting challenges, family conflict, low self-esteem, family-of-origin issues, histories of abuse, co-dependency, and enabling.

I firmly believe that we do the best we can given our current circumstances and that you are the expert of your own life. I utilize a client-centered, strengths-based approach to treatment and strive to maintain a safe, trustworthy space where each person feels seen and heard for who they are.

My practice leans on pillars of Humanism and Rogerian psychotherapy, as well as attachment, family systems, and the impact that the continuum of trauma plays in our lives. These models emphasize the client's unique perspective and understanding of his or her own life. They encourage the client to make meaning of his or her experiences within the context of that individual's entire life.

I welcome everyone, and I offer free consultations to answer questions, provide information, or to help you organize your thoughts and feelings as to whether my treatment approach is right for you at this time.

My Role as a Therapist

I strongly believe that you are the expert of your own life.

My role is to provide you with the emotional safety, support, and encouragement necessary to take a step forward. We all do the best we can with what we have, where we are. My role as your therapist is to follow your lead as you make sense of your life, your moods, your emotions, and your thoughts, ultimately accepting your past and making comfortable decisions about your future.

While I follow your lead and trust that you know yourself best, I also explore and share coping resources with you, provide you with understandable psychoeducation as it relates to your specific situation, and challenge you from time to time on assumptions you may make about yourself, your life, or your situation.

Therapy is a journey. I encourage you to be kind to yourself - as hard as that may be right now - and take the first step towards healing.
