About My Clients
As a systemically-trained therapist, I believe that no person is an island. We all have many people influencing every aspect of our lives, people who have helped shape us to be who we are today. In therapy, I want to hear about you, but I also want to hear about your people. I’m committed to taking the time we need to unravel who you really are. In therapy, we will carefully unwrap painful memories, brave new ways of thinking, and spend some of the time laughing and connecting as human beings.
My Background and Approach
Relationships are hard. There is no beating around the bush there. I do believe that they are worth it, though. As your therapist, I will guide you through a meaningful therapeutic experience to help you reconnect with your partner. I believe that we all yearn for loving companionship of some kind, and I am here to help you create (or re-create) a sturdy foundation for your relationship. I firmly believe that all relationships deserve to be nurtured with love. While I am sensitive, I won’t hesitate to give you a gentle, but direct, nudge when you are treating your partner poorly. I don’t allow name-calling or general meanness in my therapy space. My approach is compassionate and understanding, yet directive. If you truly want to heal your relationship, I believe you must commit to putting in the work. Utilizing integrative narrative therapy, a few tools from the Gottman institute, and a generally humanistic approach, I help couples truly see and hear one another.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Therapy with me will be intentional, safe, and sometimes, it can even be fun. I view every human as a work in progress and a work of art. Together, we can help you grow into the version of you that feels the most YOU. I firmly believe that therapy must be a safe space- I welcome all identities, backgrounds, and relational configurations. No matter who you are, I view you as a whole, important, and beautiful soul.
