About My Clients

Are you feeling worried, depressed, or stressed out? Maybe alone, defeated, or frustrated? Are your relationships difficult? You’re sick of the way things are and want them to get better. You want RELIEF asap! You want to feel CALM, HAPPY, and CONFIDENT. You want to make BETTER DECISIONS. You want BETTER RELATIONSHIPS. You want to feel in CONTROL of your life. You want HOPE. I am here to help you feel better. The tools and techniques I will teach you are proven by science in being effective.

My Background and Approach

I have helped many people just like you. I have helped my clients in areas such as- anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, and relationship issues. I believe that building trust and rapport with clients is extremely important in the therapeutic process. My approach is what is referred to as "client-centered" or "person-centered." This means that I provide a space of non-judgement, acceptance, empathy, authenticity, and honesty. This approach helps facilitate the process of therapy and has been extremely beneficial for clients. I have attended trainings with leading experts and continue to strengthen my skills. This is important to me because it will help you. I use evidenced-based techniques, which are proven by science in being effective. An example is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)- we will carefully look at your thoughts and work on improving them. This will help you to feel better. My clients often tell me that this has been extremely helpful and they have made improvements.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe you are capable of making positive changes. You are not damaged, broken, or hopeless. I believe you can overcome your challenges and feel more HOPE, CONTROL, and FREEDOM in your life. Making changes can feel scary, messy, and overwhelming. It takes courage to reach out for help. I've done my own therapy, so I understand how you feel. I have gained so much from my own personal development work and I know you can do the same because I've seen it with many of my clients. With consistent effort and practice, positive change is possible. You can have a better life. Your relationship with yourself and others can improve. I am passionate about helping you to feel better. You matter. Your feelings matter. I believe that therapy is a place of healing, transformation, and empowerment and I am devoted to helping you experience this. We will establish goals together for changes you want to make and therapy will be individualized to your needs.
