About My Clients
Everyone experiences painful events and relationship breakdowns in their lives. Sometimes those experiences are difficult to navigate on your own. We offer a supportive therapeutic relationship to help you work through difficulties and avoid unnecessary suffering. We are equipped to help you progress from suffering to empowerment! We want you to leave therapy with a great deal of pride in your ability to overcome obstacles and restore your emotional and relationship health!
My Background and Approach
As a person-centered group, we see each client as a whole individual and believe strongly that each person has the capability to heal and lead a very satisfying life. We provide the healing relationship, an emotionally safe environment and skills/knowledge to help you work toward your goals. Some of our therapists are DBT trained, meaning we can help you develop mindfulness, emotional regulation, relationship and distress tolerance skills. We are attachment-focused, meaning we believe that each person is wired for connection and is impacted when important connections are interrupted or harmful. We are also trauma-informed and able to help you restore a sense of safety and process the difficult experiences in your life. When working with couples, we utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy that helps us uncover the difficult patterns in your relationship that keep you stuck and help develop new patterns that restore your connection with each other.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
We believe strongly in creating a safe environment that is inclusive of all people. We regularly engage in trainings to support our own anti-racism work, to support our work with LGBTQ clientele and to better understand our own biases. We are aware of the mental health disparities among different communities and actively work to support the mental health of all people.
