About My Clients
Many of my clients come to me after other short-term therapy approaches have not worked for them. We work not only to manage distressing symptoms, but also to break enduring patterns related to identity, relationships, emotional expression, and safety. In exploring these patterns, we often find that they stem from earlier experiences where we felt unsafe, out of control, or invalidated. I do not accept insurance and my clients pay out of pocket or have out-of-network insurance benefits.
My Background and Approach
I believe that recovery is possible for everyone and healing occurs best in the context of an authentic, trusting relationship. We work not only to manage distressing symptoms, but also to break enduring patterns related to identity, relationships, emotional expression, and safety. In exploring these patterns, In therapy we work to make meaning out of past experiences, break those patterns, learn more about ourselves, and move towards the life we want. In my own life, I’ve found that it is invaluable to find trusted people to sit with you in your pain without trying to change it, fix it, or talk you out of it. I strive to be collaborative, working with clients and moving at the pace that feels right or safe to them. My approach is strengths-based and my favorite part of therapy is being able to help clients see how strong and resilient they are, and to help them have more self-compassion.
