About My Clients

What sets me apart from other therapists is my conceptualization of problems as a systemic issue. In other words, I believe that a problematic situation is never the fault of (or resolved by) one person, but rather the accumulation of factors including you, the people around you, and the environment in which you live. I work to have an understanding of the bigger picture so that I can help you overcome patterns of behavior, rather than simply helping you through an isolated incident.

My Background and Approach

One of my biggest goals in my role as a therapist is to help others feel seen and understood. This means that I try to meet you where you are, understand things from your perspective, find your strengths, and leverage them to your advantage. I’ll help you get to know your stress reactions, identify your coping strategies, learn how to communicate your feelings and needs, and find strategies that will help you bounce back. Together, we will work to develop skills and identify resources that will help you feel better prepared to overcome the inevitable ups and downs of life, leading to a resilient lifestyle you can sustain.
