While everyone develops strategies to withstand adverse experiences, over time, these once essential ways of being, coping, & relating to others & yourself can cause distress & overall dissatisfaction with life. My goal as your therapist is to collaboratively develop a relationship built on compassion, authenticity, and a dash of humor so that together we can understand your unique needs, values, and motivations.
Overall, my approach to therapy is to help you gain insight about emotional and relational patterns that are holding you back from living the life you want to lead. Over time, we will work to deepen your connection with yourself, identify the direction you’d like to grow towards or heal, and develop new ways of interacting in accordance with those goals.
I am honored to be a part of people's mental health journey and welcome you to take the first step toward the life you want to lead. Reach out today to see if I'm the right fit, and one of our intake coordinators through Center for Resilience Strategies will get you scheduled!
