About My Clients

Grief can make us feel lost and confused, but we can feel better. People typically think grief and loss are solely about losing a loved one. But we endure ambiguous losses more often than acknowledged. It can occur through experiences such as depression, anxiety, a relationship break-up, pandemics, or other life events. Although the emotions might seem to be everlasting, healing is achievable.

My Background and Approach

The interventions I provide are based on the individual that I am working with and the presenting dilemmas. My most utilized treatment approaches consist of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Couples Therapy. Beyond providing evidence-based interventions, I believe having a strong therapeutic rapport is essential to the success of the counseling process. My initial goal is to build a trusting relationship and increase your comfort level with sharing information that might not be so comfortable. I want to help you learn strategies to address unhealthy thought patterns so that you can have more control over your overall well-being.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As John Donne stated, “No man is an island.” I believe everyone needs support from others at some point in their lives. That does not mean they are weak or incompetent. It just means the situation might be harder to manage independently. That makes us all human. Sometimes all you need is someone to talk to that will listen and provide guidance in a non-judgmental and confidential manner. We can accomplish so much more in life when we have the support and motivation to do so. If you are a person who is ready to change unhealthy thought patterns and live a more gratifying and peaceful life, I am the kind of therapist that will support you through your journey. I believe therapy is a partnership. You are the expert on your feelings and needs. I have expertise in the mental health field. Together, we can work towards achieving your desired goals in a manner that is best for you.
