GET TO KNOW YOUR THERAPIST
WHY I BECAME A THERAPIST
I BECAME A THERAPIST TO HELP PEOPLE REACH THEIR POTENTIAL AND FIND THE HAPPINESS AND INNER PEACE EVERYONE DESERVES.
There are many moments where extra support can make all the difference in the world. We can all use someone to support us through life’s tough moments. I love being able to build on client strengths and help clients gain new perspectives and develop new skills to help them create meaningful and long lasting change.
I use a collaborative, solution-focused, and strength-based approach. In therapy, you and I will partner together to figure out what changes will best serve you and the life you want to live. I might have some ideas about what could be helpful and offer tools or practical feedback to support you, but you get to make the decision about what your goals for therapy are.
When I work with clients, I incorporate THREE THINGS to create positive change:
collaboration | strengths | adaptive coping skills
WHO I WORK WITH
My area of expertise is working with young adults who are trying to make major life decision and struggling to navigate the transition into adulthood.
WHAT IF I DON'T SEE CHANGE RIGHT AWAY?
