Approach

One of the most important factors in therapy is the quality of your relationship with your therapist. A good therapist should feel safe, caring, non-judgmental and be responsive to your feelings and needs. The therapeutic relationship is especially important because many issues that brought people into therapy often occurred in relationship with others, and so it is in relationship that they are often best healed.


I believe that therapy works best as a collaborative process. I make efforts to ensure that every approach is best suited for your unique personality, life history and personal preferences. During our time together, I will continue to check in with you to see if something is or isn't working for you. You are also welcome and even encouraged to raise concerns with me as well.

I work from a client-centered perspective, which means your personal truths and lived experiences are more important than any "expert" opinion. But at its best, therapy isn't just about fixing problems, it's also learning how to thrive. Every person has unique strengths and resiliencies, no matter how many challenges you have been through. They often feel so natural that we don't even recognize them as strengths. And sometimes what we believe is our biggest weakness is actually our strongest ally. So therapy can also help identify all the wonderful things that are good about you and not just what is "wrong." It sounds simple, but this slight shift in perspective can really change how one walks through life. 


I work with a wide range of issues and approaches, including:

- Mindfulness

- Integrative Therapies

- Visual Imagery

- Somatic Trauma Therapies

- Cognitive Behavioral

- Jungian-based Process Work

- Internal Family Systems

- Attachment Theory
