GET TO KNOW YOUR THERAPIST
WHY I BECAME A THERAPIST
I BECAME A THERAPIST TO SUPPORT YOU THROUGH CONFUSING AND TUMULTUOUS TIMES.
I VIEW THERAPY AS A COLLABORATIVE OPPORTUNITY FOR CLIENTS TO OVERCOME BARRIERS THAT ARE HOLDING THEM BACK, WORK THROUGH PAST HARDSHIPS THAT MIGHT BE GETTING IN THE WAY, AND CO-CREATE A PLAN TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS TO LIVE THEIR BEST LIFE.
Everyone has the capacity to thrive, and therapy is a safe place 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 personal growth and understanding. 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:
openness | collaboration | acceptance
