Let's Connect (860) 458-3236
I bring a down-to-earth approach to what can be a difficult, but rewarding, process. I have been practicing since 1999 and have learned, without a doubt, that people heal and grow when they feel safe, not judged and understood. So, that is exactly what you can expect. I work deeply and emphasize teaching clients about their emotional lives. Psychological difficulties are often rooted in barriers to knowing, understanding or supporting ones feelings and needs. This leads to emotional distress and is at the root of anxiety, depression, and the impact of trauma. This is often the emphasis of therapy.
I have an expertise in understanding personality, which significantly impacts coping strategies and reactions to events. I help clients to understand this part of themselves and whether this impacts the difficulties they're having. I primarily use Gestalt and cognitive therapies and find these to be an effective combination.
You can expect that I will be open with you about insights I have about your difficulties and teach you what's necessary for healing. You understanding you and being able to be your authentic self is what will matter, not just if I see it. I will help you to learn to effectively process your feelings and become empowered to guide your life as you see fit.
