My passion is in helping both teens and adults who have experienced difficulties and want to achieve a better norm. I believe there is always hope for a solution and an opportunity to create new ways of thinking about yourself, and the world around you. My hope for you is that we can work together to create more insight, confidence, and balance. My clients have a wide range of life experiences that have left them with unaddressed trauma and often second guess themselves. I am extremely passionate about listening to your story and working with you to explore solutions specific to your goals for growth and change, and evidence based practices will provide us with structure while we explore.
In our sessions, you can expect that we will dive into our journey together through open discussion and active processing. Therapy can be difficult, but I hope you’ll feel connected and supported along the way.
Fresh but experienced: I’m coming to you with a fresh perspective. My own experiences (although they may be different from yours) allow me to understand the difficulties one faces on the journey of change, including the discomfort and relief that can be experienced in recounting personal experiences and exploring solutions.
Supportive: Lots of people are nervous when they’re reaching out to begin therapy, even if they know they need change. If you’re unsure about what the therapy experience will be like, you can trust that you’ll have huge support along the way.
