WHY I BECAME A THERAPIST

The only constant in life is change, and at times changes can feel scary or overwhelming. Therapy can provide a safe space to process feelings associated with change and identify any barriers that might be holding you back. It can also help you gain insight and understanding about yourself that is essential in working towards your goals and cultivating meaningful changes in your life.
 
 

I BECAME A THERAPIST TO PROVIDE SUPPORT TO PEOPLE WHO FEEL ALONE OR OVERWHELMED BY LIFE’S UPS AND DOWNS. 

I BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE THE EXPERT ON YOUR LIFE AND WILL USE A COLLABORATIVE AND STRENGTHS-BASED APPROACH IN OUR WORK TOGETHER. I WILL SUPPORT YOU IN UNCOVERing your innate STRENGTHS and working towards any goals YOU may have.

In our work together, I will support you to gain self-awareness to identify any changes to live a more joyful and meaningful life. We will identify any barriers that keep you from authentically engaging in your relationships and the world around you.  Through acceptance and trust we will develop a comfortable and safe therapeutic relationship for you to fully engage in our work together.

 

When I work with clients, I incorporate THREE THINGS to create positive change:

acceptance | trust | self-compassion

When working with clients, I focus on cultivating a warm, safe, and non-judgmental relationship in which clients feel safe and empowered. Creating a trusting therapeutic relationship helps me to better see who you are and who you want to be, more thoroughly understand the challenges that the you face, and help facilitate change that will be both meaningful and enduring in your life.

WHO I WORK WITH

I work with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, major life transitions, low self-worth and self-esteem, and those that have experienced trauma

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.

HOW DO KNOW IF THERAPY IS RIGHT FOR ME?

If you are wondering whether or not therapy may be helpful for you, the answer is probably yes. I believe that everyone can reap the benefits of therapy, whether you are struggling with a challenging life transition, are feeling unfulfilled or unhappy, have fallen into unhelpful patterns of thoughts or behaviors, or are just generally not feeling quite like yourself and can’t seem to figure out why. There is no “one size fits all” therapeutic experience, and you and I will work together to find an approach that feels right for you. You get to take charge of your own healing journey, while I am merely here to guide and support your growth.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” – Brené Brown
