My Ideal Client

I am here to offer you a space that you feel supported, understood, and challenged to explore those difficult and seemingly hard to reach places within yourself. My hope is to foster a trusting relationship where, together, we can identify the strengths you already have, in order to cultivate change, growth, and healing.

My Approach to Helping

Trained in emotionally focused therapy, I approach therapy through an experiential lens (accepting and experiencing emotions that guide our behaviors). My therapeutic work is done in a systemic lens; it is important for my work to look at each individual keeping in mind their whole system that surrounds them. I view counseling as a collaborative process where I strive to understand each individual based on their own psychological, physical, and spiritual background. It can be difficult to reach out for help, but I believe all people can benefit from counseling at one or multiple points in their life. Please don't hesitate to reach out to see if I will be a good fit for you.

Why I am a Good Fit for You

As humans, we are innately relational and socially wired in nature. We who long for connection; we need it for survival. Our heart crave to be in relationships with others. All infants seek security with their mother or significant attachment figure, and the need for this kind of bond continues with us into adult life. When we experience stress, frustration, anger, deep hurts, grief, loss, or fear, connecting and processing with others helps de-escalate internal tension. We can see how our own childhood attachment impacts the way we respond to and interact with friends, collogues, family members, and spouses as adults. I believe one of the best ways change occurs is when deep empathy is present and there is space that allows us to experience emotions, and processes through these emotions in a secure environment. Emotions are seen as a prompt and guide to our behaviors, especially within relationships.
