GET TO KNOW YOUR THERAPIST
WHY I BECAME A THERAPIST
I BECAME A THERAPIST TO HELP PEOPLE COPE WITH LIFE’S UPS AND DOWNS SO THEY CAN LIVE HAPPY AND FULFILLING LIVES.
I work to meet my clients where they are at. Every person has a special and unique story to tell. Therapy should be a safe and transformational space for you to tell your story, explore areas that get in your way, learn new ways to cope with stressors, and help guide you to a happier life!
Life has its ups and downs, and sometimes you might need a little extra support to deal with challenges. Therapy can be the perfect way to get this additional support, helping you to figure out what’s working well and what you want to change about your life. Therapy offers a space that allows you to acknowledge how actions and behaviors contributed to who you are today. The therapy process can be challenging, but the techniques and coping skills that can come from it are invaluable.
When I work with clients, I incorporate THREE THINGS to create positive change:
unconditional positive regard | self-reflection | adaptive coping skills
WHO I WORK WITH
My area of expertise is working with individuals who are overcoming painful emotions such as guilt, shame, or inadequacy that have been holding them back from living their best lives.
