About My Clients

Many who find relief through work with me have gotten fed up with feeling out of control. Keeping it together has gotten harder and harder, and feelings of chaos have increased. We can break patterns. We can find solutions. We can find empowerment, beyond ways you've ever felt it before.

My Background and Approach

Clients have said, "she really gets right into it!" which I appreciate, since I've also heard enough stories about someone seeing a therapist week after week after week with little other happening than "how did that make you feel?" and some nodding. The point of therapy is to create change, so that's what I'm working towards with our relationship. What changes do you need to happen and how can we get there? It is a process. We need to have our heads in the game to make the most of every meeting. I also understand how uncomfortable therapy can be. We are looking at stuff you have chosen not to look at for awhile. We are exploring feelings that aren't enjoyable- even painful. We are peeling off scabs so that we can clean wounds. Healing doesn't feel good the whole time it is happening. And just like a tough workout, the results feel SO good. Being stronger, more capable, and having a clearer head and happier mindset- SO worth it. And so beneficial to you and everyone you interact with.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe everyone has unique strengths that should be recognized and appreciated. I believe change is possible for anyone, when they adamantly pursue it. I believe facing our fears makes us stronger. I believe we need social interaction, connection, and support. I believe that by improving oneself, it is easier for friends/family/coworkers to also improve. I believe that the being good to others starts with making sure my needs are met. Otherwise, I'm "taking care of others" so that they will give me what I haven't taken care of for myself.
