My Approach to Helping
I work with clients from a wide variety of backgrounds, who have all come to a shared realization: that their way of living is no longer working for them. Whether you are struggling with addiction or depression or find yourself experiencing relationship difficulties, you aspire to something new; something more. Together we identify the nature of your particular dissatisfaction, discover how you got here, and develop a more desirable and sustainable way of life. I believe that my role is to be a nonjudgmental companion to you on your unique journey of self-discovery and profound change.

People who seek my help often feel stuck, anxious, depressed, unfulfilled, or otherwise dissatisfied with life. You might be experiencing relationship difficulties or suffering from the disease of addiction. Together we will bring clarity to the particular dilemma you are facing and from there we can work to identify and resolve core issues.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
The quality and nature of the therapeutic relationship is the single greatest contributor to a beneficial outcome from psychotherapy. The foundation of the therapeutic relationship is mutual trust. How this trust develops is unique to every therapeutic relationship, but you must come to believe that you can be your honest and open self within the therapy space for any change or healing to take place. As you come to better understand yourself in the therapy space, you can consider how to best bring yourself into the outside world. The therapeutic relationship can help to nurture and support you on this self-guided journey of discovery and change.
My Role as a Therapist
I will strive to create a safe and nonjudgmental space for you to explore yourself. I will ask you to verbalize your feelings and the motivations behind your behavior. I will pull on the threads of your ideas so that you can see where they come from and where they will lead. I will challenge you to go one step farther than you think that you can and I expect you to tell me if and when we might be moving too fast. I will encourage you to bring your honest, authentic self into the therapy space; I will do the same. I will help you come to better understand who you are and how you can be you in the world.
