About

Do you feel stuck out on your own private island? Everyone feels lonely occasionally and some people enjoy solitude, but loneliness is the feeling of one’s social needs not being met. Loneliness can lead to anxiety and depression especially in cases of isolation. How did I become so lonely? What is it about therapy that addresses loneliness? It is different for everyone, but noticing personal challenges and how you deal with them is part of therapy. An important step is feeling compassionate self-kindness by acknowledging your common humanity in a world full of struggles.
Clients find that I am kind and use my humor to create a calm and relaxed space. I make sure goals are set so we can identify successes and areas of need. Using person centered techniques gives me the opportunity to work with people in life transitions especially those due to covid-19, people with relationship issues, anxiety, depression.
I want my clients to feel like I am holding space for them. This allows me to meet them where they are in therapy and then grow in understanding of their needs and strengths. I am a visual thinker, explaining ideas from that different point of view can be helpful for some of my clients.
