Asking for help can often feel like a vulnerable and risky endeavor. At the foundation of my work, I believe that coming in for therapy is brave and everyone should feel heard. My hope is that our work together will make vulnerability a little less scary. As such, my approach is flexible and integrative aiming to help develop insight and understanding while also initiating change. In collaboration with you, I use different strategies to help further develop your sense of choice and empowerment, build confidence in your intuition, as well as deepen your empathy for self and others.

As far as anyone knows, you’re an Achiever. You seemingly function so well that others forget that you’re human and have problems, too. You’ve checked off a lot of boxes of success, but you often wonder why you’re not truly satisfied. You experience guilt for wanting something more out of life and relationships. It’s frustrating to experience anxiety that constantly makes you feel like you have to work really hard to keep things together. Add in the uncertainties and stress of an ongoing pandemic along with ongoing racial injustices, and you wonder how to gain longer-term relief.

Safety is the essence of therapy. My interactive approach focuses on the unique requirements each person needs to feel safe to recover their authentic sense of self which had to be set aside in order to not feel alone. It offers relief from unreasonable beliefs about hurting others. This also allows me to calibrate when treatment is progressing and how to keep it on track. Those who feel stuck in unsatisfying relationships or careers, have difficult family relationships, procrastinate, are indecisive, doubt their talents, think they are an imposter and who protect others at their own expense will find this therapy helpful.

As a experienced, licensed Psychotherapist, I believe in the collaborative process in which both therapist and client are coparticipants in transformation. I attempt to create a safe place in which clients feel free to express their unique life experiences in order to more fully understand the obstacles that inhibit their growth. In a supportive therapeutic relationship, it is possible to emotionally metabolize life's challenging events to begin to really know and trust oneself in order to create meaningful change.

I strive to create an environment of safety, non-judgment and compassion in order to make room for uncomfortable or overwhelming emotions.
