Approach


WHY CHOOSE PSYCHOTHERAPY?

Living a life that is authentic and filled with joy can be possible!  By drawing upon your unique strengths to uncover what may be holding you back in life, you have the potential to heal and transform yourself. In addition to being used to treat symptoms of emotional pain, therapy is also a powerful tool for self discovery. In this way, therapy can help us release ways of being in the world which cause us distress or emotional pain.

Some things therapy can help with include:

  • Decrease Anxiety
  • Decrease Depression
  • Increase Self Awareness
  • Self Growth
  • Improve Relationships
  • Improve Connection with Others
  • Strengthen Intuition


WHAT TO EXPECT

My style is supportive, non-judgemental and creative.  My role as a therapist is to empower you to reach the goals and well-being that YOU yearn for.   By working together we uncover old strategies that may be at work to maintain areas in which you are stuck, struggling, and desire change.  Unconscious material as well as personal strength comes into focus by discussing your past relationships and life events while exploring your current life stressors, goals and progress.

My goal as your therapist is to work with you in a collaborative manner to help you discern and reach your personal goals. Therapy is interactive and based upon each individual’s talents and strengths. Each session and treatment plan is absolutely individualized allowing your therapy to be absorbed at a deeper level and more effective in your daily life.  As your therapist I will assist you by promoting authenticity, self-compassion, and self-acceptance in order for you to come into your own natural state of well-being.

SPECIALIZATION

Each person is unique and I will tailor my approach to what may work best for you.  That said, some of the theories I pull from, and have received training in, include but are not limited to: Psychodynamic therapies, mindfulness-based therapy, attachment, Brainspotting (BSP), person-centered, solution focused, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and expressive art therapy.   

Thrive wherever you are!
