About

I approach therapy with the intent to get to know you on a core level. This includes understanding your feelings, thoughts, behaviors, desires, and relationships. We then collaboratively use this information to make meaning of your experiences both past and present. I pay attention to your emotional presence and seek to understand how your past experiences may be leading you to protect yourself from vulnerability and uncomfortable feelings. This understanding can help you engage more actively with yourself and enriches your interpersonal relationships.
Clients will often hear me talk about how empowering self-awareness is and how it can help you feel more in control of your inner experience. My goal is to help you identify and gently challenge patterns and protective mechanisms that are no longer effective. Through this process, we may uncover parts of yourself that have been suppressed or unacknowledged.
I believe that healing cannot occur unless a solid therapeutic relationship is built and maintained. As such, I strive to help create a warm, non-judgmental, humor-filled, transparent, and meaningful dynamic that enables you to feel safe exploring and sharing deeper aspects of your experience. If this matches what you are looking for, please reach out.
