My Approach to Helping
”I believe that people are doing the best they can with the tools they have. We may not always realize what we have at our disposal or the tools we are using cause us distress themselves. Sometimes, we just need a few more tools in the toolbox and a space that offers us acceptance, validation, and collaboration. A space that challenges us yet values our strengths and recognizes our resilience. That is the space I want to provide for others.
As a therapist operating from a trauma-informed perspective, I bring an understanding of how our experiences in early life can affect us in the long-term, as well as how our stress can be carried in our bodies in ways that may be difficult to understand or convey to others. I also understand the importance of safety in the therapeutic relationship and I strive to provide that for clients. My goal is to provide clients with the tools they need to not only manage their symptomsstressors, but to live a rich and meaningful life.”
