About My Clients

I have worked with a lot of people going through life transitions, understanding trauma, and exploring what makes healthy and happy relationships. I believe that therapy is a tool to assist in times of need, and in therapy I want to support the individual to come to their own conclusions about what they need to feel whole and satisfied with life. My end goal is for my clients to feel that they have their own tools to solve their problems and eventually do not need therapy anymore.

My Background and Approach

My background as a social worker includes over 10 years of case management experience, where I've worked with low-income people in public assistance programs, so I understand the requirements of these programs and have experience helping navigate complex systems. I have also worked with many people experiencing domestic violence and recovering from abuse. My approach is non-judgmental, assisting clients with understanding their tendencies and how these affect their interactions with and reactions to other people. I believe that positive, healthy relationships are the way to heal from negative past experiences and the therapeutic relationship is my greatest tool to help do that. My preferred techniques include CBT, IFS, mindfulness, and solution-focused therapies.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that all people in essence want the same things - to be cared for and care for others, to be safe, and to have accomplishments and recognition from others. I don't believe that needing therapy means something is "wrong" with a person, and I think that what constitutes a problem or success can look different for each person.
