I understand how overwhelming it can be to begin therapy, but I believe that your experience in counseling will be worth any effort you invest in it. My role is to provide a safe space for personal exploration, and I will challenge and encourage you as you take this step into a healthier life.
I work from a cognitive-behavioral viewpoint, which means that I believe that our emotions and actions are affected by our thoughts and self-talk. By identifying and changing negative thought patterns, you will gain better control over how you respond emotionally to everyday situations and major life events.
I also focus on teaching more effective communication skills to help clients resolve conflicts and improve emotional intimacy with parents, children, friends, and significant others. I treat every person with respect, empathy, and compassion, and I believe that you already have the strength and resources to get through these difficulties.
I love working with adults who are seeking greater insight into their motivations and emotional needs. I am experienced working with clients struggling with:
- Low self-esteem
- Relationship issues
- Communication problems
- Unhealthy boundaries
- Poor work/life balance
- Lack of personal fulfillment
It takes incredible courage to be vulnerable and open to change, and it is beautiful and humbling to take part in that process with clients. I love being present for the “ah-ha!” moments of therapy, and it is wonderful to witness the changes that happen in clients. People are amazingly resilient, and I find my hope and optimism about human nature in each person’s ability to grow.
