It takes courage to recognize and accept when we might need help. Finding the right therapist to help may be even more challenging. My therapeutic philosophy is based on the idea that each of us has the capacity for healing and growth within ourselves. Therapy should provide you with the space to be your true and authentic self, without judgment, allowing you the freedom to realize your capacity to create meaning in your life. We will work together to develop a relationship rooted in safety and trust so that you can make choices and changes at a pace that feels right for you.

I strive to create an environment which is affirming and comfortable yet also expect I will challenge clients in their assumptions regarding thoughts, behaviors, and social interactions. I often use humor, clinical vignettes, and use of self (my own experiences) to create a positive therapeutic experience for the clients I serve. I believe therapy is a collaborative process between client and therapist. As such, clients create goals for themselves while therapist assist them in reaching their goals. I want clients to obtain the services that are right for them, as such, I am always willing and happy to provide referrals as needed.

Maybe I'm your therapist...or maybe not. That might sound like an odd thing to say, but I firmly believe (and the research backs me up) that the MOST important determinant in success in therapy is the fit between the client and the therapist. Just like we don't "click" with everyone me meet in the outside world, there's a chance that you and the therapist you pick might not "click." If this is the case, move on, and find someone that works. Then, together, you will build a space for healing, insight, and growth.

I remember my own experience meeting my new therapist. I was anxious to talk to a new person. I did not know if I would make sense. I did not want to feel judged. I remember feeling lost and hopeless. The only thing I knew was that I wanted to change the bad feelings and I resisted to believe that there was something wrong with me. I wanted someone who could guide me to understand my world and myself. I wanted a safe space. I needed to find someone who could collaborate with me in changing and resisting. I did not want a therapist who treated me as a study object. I just wanted to feel fully human.

There are many events that send us looking for answers in therapy. Some need information to address a new situation, some feel blocked from doing what they desire, some feel pushed to do things they don't want to do, some feel prevented from doing something they know would benefit them. We all struggle, no one's life is perfect. It's what we make of our circumstances that make us who we are. We isolate our "Genuine Self" then work towards defining the "Desired Self", that part of self that is capable of maintaining happiness. By increasing our awareness we can reach any goal, embracing change as we evolve.
