About My Clients
Working with a broad spectrum of clients dealing with such issues as grief, loss, trauma, shame, depression, anxiety, stress management, identity issues, and relational problems, my desire is to help them to move beyond merely coping with these issues and to find true healing and freedom and, ultimately, to live more whole, fulfilling, and flourishing lives. I particularly enjoy working with adolescents and young adults dealing with anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem.
My Background and Approach
I believe that meaningful personal connection—feeling understood, accepted, and loved—is at the heart of well-being, so my desire is to provide a genuine, warm, and safe presence in which my clients feel comfortable sharing their stories and exploring how their past has shaped them and their experience of the present. My goal is to instill hope and to work in collaboration towards healing, growth, and increased well-being. While I have a psychodynamic approach, I integrate techniques employed in such approaches as accelerated experiential-dynamic psychotherapy (AEDP), emotionally focused therapy (EFT), gestalt therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). The hope is that this allows me to honor the uniqueness of my clients and to tailor my approach to better meet their needs, build upon their strengths, and empower them to achieve their full potential.
