About My Clients
Ever feel like you just don't know which way is up anymore? Whether it's at work or school, in your relationships, even in your own identity, it's easy to feel lost in the sea of life. Perhaps you're trying to adapt to a new normal, or you're feeling dissatisfied in your marriage; life isn't meant to just be tolerated or survived, it's meant to be lived and enjoyed. This can be incredibly challenging if you feel tense, on edge, fearful, resentful, panicked, lonely, or like you're not enough.
My Background and Approach
Clients often struggle to verbalize exactly what they want out of life, which is half the battle. Usually, what they know for sure is that they don't want whatever is happening in their present to continue into their future. With Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gottman Method, and Solution Focused strategies, you'll not only learn a clear answer to what you want, but exactly how to get there. You'll also experience relief from the baggage of the past through processing past hurts and overcoming internal and external barriers to success and happiness by connecting with your most authentic and integrated self. Feeling safe, validated, and supported without judgment are the tenants which breed the greatest success in therapy and are the foundations of my practice. Clients driven to put in the work to live their best life often find success with the insights and skills I can provide.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I'm a firm believer that we are all just one decision away from a completely different life and that it's never too late to make changes. Therapy is an incredible tool to utilize as it provides you with a wealth of knowledge and insight that rarely comes from talking with family and friends. We all have blind spots and it takes courage to ask another to point them out to us, so I don't take that responsibility lightly. I am a member and supporter of the LGBTQ+ community and an advocate and ally for all people of color. I also believe that the therapeutic relationship is one between equals. While I may be an expert in modalities and therapy, the client is always the expert in themselves and I honor that fully.
