My Approach to Helping
Life is challenging, and we all need and deserve support. You may have some idea of what's bothering you, or it might be harder to pinpoint or describe. Maybe you feel anxious, sad, angry, or disconnected, without knowing why. Or find yourself in similar predicaments or relationships time and time again, without understanding how you got there. It could be the things you’ve been doing to cope have stopped working, or hurt more than they help. Because we are used to our internal worlds, like fish in water, we don't always see what's at the root of our suffering. Therapy is a great way to get unstuck and realize your potential.
When I am working with someone, I focus on creating a welcoming, nonjudgmental space that is also engaged and challenging. This allows for safe exploration and the opportunity for lasting change, as you gain self-awareness and insight into your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, recognizing your strengths and the things that may no longer be serving you.
