I believe that therapy is a collaborative process with the therapist acting as a guide helping the client develop skills and tools to apply to their own lives. In our work together, I strive to help people lead more fulfilling, more meaningful, more productive, and happier lives. We will achieve this by exploring how your past relationships and life events impacts your present functioning. As well, we will explore your life choices, thought patterns, relational patterns, and how they all impact and contribute to who you are and your current symptoms.
Most importantly, this takes place in a safe, nurturing, and non-judgmental environment. I employ an empathic, active, supportive, and collaborative approach to therapy, always placing the clients wellbeing first. I do not view psychotherapy as the therapist telling the client what to do; instead therapy is successful when the client is able to on his or her own effectively promote lasting change in his or her life.
I have developed a passion for working with several types of individuals including, adults dealing with life transitions, adolescents and young adults working through identity changes, and helping individuals navigate through their depression and anxiety. Additionally, I spent several years crafting my doctoral dissertation, which explored the impact on the self-esteem of kids and adolescents due to learning disabilities and ADHD. I believe that the detrimental effect school difficulties can have on a child can be worked through and one can learn to think in new ways that restore his or her fragile self-concept.
