GET TO KNOW YOUR THERAPIST
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, which is essential in working towards your goals and cultivating meaningful changes in your life.
I BECAME A THERAPIST TO HELP YOU BEGIN YOUR HEALING JOURNEY AND FIND A SENSE OF PEACE AND PURPOSE.
EVERYONE HAS THE CAPACITY TO THRIVE AND THERAPY IS A SAFE SPACE TO TALK ABOUT YOUR GOALS, EXPLORE WHAT’S HOLDING YOU BACK AND SHINE A SPOTLIGHT ON YOUR STRENGTHS AND TALENTS. WITH AUTHENTICITY, KINDNESS, AND WARMTH, I COLLABORATE WITH CLIENTS TO ENHANCE THEIR PERSONAL GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT.
I believe the therapeutic relationship is an important part of the process. I build a warm, non-judgmental environment to create safety in the process. As we work together, we will discover self-awareness, communication, and ways to bring enthusiasm to life. I work with clients to deepen their self-discovery, cope with anxiety and depression, transition through life’s changes, and find communication skills and understanding in one’s relationships.
When I work with clients, I incorporate THREE THINGS to create positive change:
positivity | self-acceptance | healing
WHO I WORK WITH
I work with clients facing challenges related to major life changes, self-esteem, stress & work-life balance, anxiety, depression, and grief/loss. I specialize in teens and emerging adults who are developing their sense of self and identity as they navigate exciting and overwhelming changes such as graduating, changing schools, adjusting to college, and starting or changing their career.
My area of expertise is helping individuals find their strengths and build the skills to cope with life stressors.
