About My Clients
I work with a range of concerns including stress, life transitions, anxiety, and trauma. I also specialize in working with people who don't necessarily have a diagnosis, but just want to feel or perform better. I enjoy working with clients who are motivated for change, but need support finding a path forward. I also specialize in working with students and with other helpers and healthcare professionals.
My Background and Approach
My approach is trauma-informed, recognizing that many of our struggles come from living in damaging contexts. I integrate mindfulness and positive psychology to help you feel more engaged and move beyond just "okay" towards a meaningful life. I am also trained in EMDR, ACT, and CBT. I see therapy as a collaborative space and encourage feedback and active engagement in order to create the most helpful and impactful environment for you. I don't believe there is a single "right" way to do therapy, and I will work to find the approach that best fits you and your specific concerns.
Why I am a Good Fit for You
Many of the clients that I see have spent plenty of time "thinking through" their problems. You've tried problem-solving, analyzing, and applying logic, but still feel stuck. In those cases, it can be helpful to change the perspective, and approach things from a different direction. This could mean looking backward at your history or context, forward towards your goals and values, or shifting away from thoughts in the present moment and instead looking towards our body or emotions for wisdom. I enjoy working with clients who are open to creatively exploring those different perspectives, as we work toward a compassionate understanding of your struggle.
