PHILOSOPHY

Life is full of change and transition. While unexpected changes that pop up in our lives can cause distress, sometimes even changes that are wanted and planned for can be difficult to implement or stressful to navigate through. Therapy provides an affirming, nonjudgmental space for people to seek comfort, find meaning, and promote healing and growth as we navigate through life.

THERAPY WITH ME

My clients can expect a non-judgmental, strengths-based, and collaborative approach to therapeutic work with me. I  see my role as a therapist as someone who metaphorically walks with people on their journey to implement change in their lives, helping them reflect and discover what helps them move forward in healthy ways. I believe a therapeutic space is at its best when clients feel heard, are empowered to be their authentic selves, and are actively involved in shaping the therapeutic goals and experience.
