About My Clients
Life can be overwhelming. You may feel stuck, alone or unable to achieve your goals. You may have tried various things to dislodge this fear from taking hold. Fear of being stuck in a cycle of being constantly overwhelmed by your emotions. Fear that you are alone and no one understands what you are going through. But things don’t have to be this way! With the right help you will find that profound change is possible and that you can be free of this weight on top of you.
My Background and Approach
My belief is that you are the expert on you and that my job is to provide you the tools and guidance to reach your goals. Your voice is incredibly important and I want to hear what’s going on for you. My general framework for therapy is person-centered therapy. This type of therapy focuses on meeting your needs through gentle guidance and reflection to facilitate exploration and growth. I also like to blend in other types of therapy like cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). CBT and DBT offer wonderful skills to help change thoughts and behaviors, which helps improve your mood. Therapy sessions are generally pretty relaxed and free flowing. Sometimes, I might recommend an activity or homework that is more structured to help you tackle a specific concern. I’ll also probably be joined by my two wonderful cats during our virtual sessions, they can be pretty nosy!
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I always knew that I wanted to be in a helping profession. I used to tell my parents that I wanted to be a veterinarian when I was little. (I still love animals!) As I grew up, I learned that I really enjoyed getting to know and helping people. I continue to enjoy helping others and find that I also learn and grow with those I work with. It’s such a rewarding experience to be there for others and help them achieve their potential.
