About My Clients
My ideal client will be curious, dedicated, and ready for deeper introspection of their current or past struggles. As a recovering perfectionist myself, I understand that you’re the type of person who values efficiency and action. You want solutions now and may even be skeptical about whether therapy can really help you - that’s okay! Immediate relief can usually be achieved through education and skill-building, but the most meaningful and long-lasting benefits of therapy come with time.
My Background and Approach
I have almost 10 years of experience working in the mental health field. I completed my Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling Psychology in 2015. I describe my style as investigative and analytical, yet compassionate and collaborative. My ultimate goal is to help people deeply understand the way they interact with themselves, others, and the world and why these habits developed. From there, many clients also want to examine if these habits are properly serving them and how a better method might be achieved. The therapeutic methods I align with most are CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy), EFT (Emotionally-Focused Therapy), and DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). I also often utilize stylistic approaches and interventions from Humanistic Therapy and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy).
