About My Clients
Struggling with past experiences like an adverse childhood, emerging from a rough relationship or feeling stuck in your reactions and relationships to the world? Doing the same thing and ending up in the same place over and over again? “Stuckness” can result in anxiety, depression, irritability, hopelessness… Feelings that can fester and develop into impulsive behavior, self-judgment, fear, isolation and/ or a lack of motivation. I can help you sort through it all and do something different.
My Background and Approach
My approaches to your situation are eclectic. I shift my focus depending on your needs and responses to our work together. I able to provide you with language, skills and perspectives that can help regulate and tolerate emotional experiences while also exploring how your past is influencing you where you are right now and helping you articulate where you would like to go. Since 2013 I have been helping clients gain insight and momentum to be creative with their lives, turning distress into something that can be worked with. I began my professional career as a visual artist, I bring a creative approach that enables my clients to speak freely, express what they want and learn to make something useful out what ever they bring to me.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I became a therapist though being a client. I believe that my therapy experiences were more influential than my college education at helping me succeed at building life on my own terms. Investing in exploring your relationship to yourself and others opens doors and expands your awareness of choices. By becoming aware of your own history, patterns and desires you can work thru the stuff that limits you and become effective at dealing with others.
