Sometimes the circumstances that bring someone into therapy feel monumental or even shameful. Other times they might seem hard to pinpoint or articulate. The reasons people seek therapy are countless, and they all matter. They affect our thoughts and our relationships, often quite deeply, so they are indeed worthy of attention. My purpose as a therapist is to develop a relationship and a context that feels restorative and safe through which my patients and I can grapple with any and all concerns imaginable. Through intimate conversation and our shared experience emerge feelings, buried fears, and the previously unknowable.

While the thought of therapy can be intimidating, your therapist never should be. I want my clients to understand that there is no “right answer” and as a therapist, I am not asking for one. Instead, I want to provide a place where my clients feel safe to openly and honestly express themselves, where they, as experts of their own thoughts and experiences, are in the driver seat. My job is to provide direction and support. Together, we will set goals and work towards them through a relational, empathetic, and direct approach.

We, as human beings, have our habitual way to think, feel, and behave which may not always help us cope well. We may feel stuck in the past, fearful for the unknown future, and not being able to be present in the moment. We are not able to change the past and we cannot live in the future because future is delusional and non-existent. The present is the only time that we can do something to make a change and feel better. We do not need to deal with a struggle once we stop fighting against it and begin to practice acceptance and let go of the attachment to our habitual pattern so as to respond with a mindful and non-judgmental mind.
