My Approach to Helping
I work well with clients who are experiencing addiction, anxiety, depression, loneliness, and grief, as well as many other kinds of experiences. Whatever you’re going through, my aim is to meet you where you are and to collaborate on a way forward. I strive to make sure that our sessions are more like genuine conversations than examinations, as I want you to feel as comfortable as possible to just be yourself. I believe that you are the expert in your own life, as you know more about yourself than I ever could. My approach, then, focuses on helping you to organize your own experiences into a cohesive understanding of self.
My practice is built on a client-centered approach, which means primarily that I facilitate a therapeutic environment free of judgment. What I want most is for you to feel free to be your true self, so that we might find the most authentic solutions to the issues you seek to address. Beyond this, I also incorporate humanistic and psychodynamic theory.
If you think I might be a good fit for you, please do not hesitate to reach out. I know this can be an intimidating experience, so I strive to be as unintimidating as possible. I look forward to hearing from you.
