About My Clients
Do you experience frequent worries that make it difficult to enjoy life? Do you find yourself worrying about your worry? Or perhaps you feel unmotivated and struggle to make it through the day. I specialize in working with children, teens and young adults who are experiencing struggles with anxiety, depression and trauma. I help my clients explore aspects of identity development, self-esteem struggles, difficult life transitions, and challenging family dynamics.
My Background and Approach
I am passionate about helping peoples explore their true, authentic self so that they can better understand what is most important to them. We often become distracted by other's expectations of us and can begin to think that there is one "right" way to do or think about things. I utilize a collaborative, client-centered and integrative approach in working with clients to create a space for people to feel safe in exploring these sometimes challenging topics. Some of the modalities that I use in therapy include components of mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), family systems therapy and trauma-informed practices.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that each one of us is resilient. Therapy is a place to explore and better understand oneself in the midst of all the external factors in our lives. When we take the time to look inward, we build the capacity to experience the world around us in a new light. In therapy, I will help you discover your inner wisdom and resiliency. Sometimes our inner knowing gets muddled by outside factors and the structure of our lives. When we take the time to take a look at this process and how it has unfolded, we bring back the ability to see clearly and can make the changes in our lives that empower us to live more fully.
