Throughout the years, my clients have often so generously shared with me reflections like, “you just get me” and “I feel safe”. They’ve given me the credit, when truly the work is possible because they invite me into knowing their wishes, strengths, and challenges. Together, we consider those echos from the past that sometimes spill into their lives today. Examining those circumstances clients bravely come to therapy with can allow for deeper joy and peace in their lives. And when exploring those circumstances feels vulnerable, I remind clients “no judgement here."
Coming from a spirit of warmth and optimism, I wholeheartedly believe that change is not only possible, but inevitable if you are willing. People are resilient, and through the healing (including a little bit of humor...) that happens in the clinical space, clients can experience the growth they hope for. I aim to leave clients with a sense that they are in a partnership with someone who is committed to their growth.
