My Background and Approach

I focus less on specific techniques than on connecting authentically with my client so we can enter your world together and find out what you most want and need. With this in place, the work can meaningfully progress. I think the most importantly aspects of therapy are showing up every week, focusing on yourself, being honest as you can, getting in touch with what you care about and need, and learning to allow yourself to recognize, accept, and experience your feelings. Everything I do in therapy with you will be in service of these goals. I will be your warm, respectful, authentically caring partner, eager to offer up whatever wisdom I have accumulated thus far in my life and career.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My first experience in therapy was intense because I was not comfortable being vulnerable, showing and feeling my deepest emotions, and focusing solely on myself for a full hour at a time. I feared therapy would show that something was wrong with me. In fact, therapy has helped me immensely to accept and respect myself, and it has allowed me to deepen my relationships now that I am more open and more comfortable with my emotions. I am so grateful that I can remember how challenging therapy was in the beginning, because I know some of my clients will feel this same uneasiness, and I understand it. I will support you and do my part to help you feel safe and accepted, and to encourage you to trust in the process of therapy and all it has to offer.
