My Approach to Helping

If you are reading this, you have been contemplating potentially attending therapy. So, let’s answer THE question right off the bat- Why do people go to therapy? One way I like to put it is that people go to therapy when their mind and body are not connecting. For example- your mind wants to “move on” or “focus”, but your body is having all sorts of feelings. Sound a little familiar? Another reason one would come to therapy could be to regain some sense of control or to build self-trust with themselves. Maybe there is something that keeps on coming up in your life, that you would like to address so it doesn’t continue to interfere with your relationships or daily life. Or maybe you are the first in your family to be on a healing journey and are experiencing the growing pains of what comes with making that very brave choice. For whatever reason that has brought you to read this, I’m happy you’re here.

I believe that everyone’s journey is unique and deserves a safe space to share. I believe my role as a therapist is to meet you where you are emotionally and to help be a guide along your healing journey. I mostly practice from a humanistic approach and believe that each human is a collection of experiences that have shaped them into who they are today. Therapy is meant to be about you and your experiences, and I work with you to incorporate interventions, modalities, and help you identify goals personalized to you.

I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families as they work through a wide range of issues including traumatic experiences, parenting, first-generation experiences, grief, depression, and anxiety.

I look forward to meeting you.
