I am grateful for your consideration of therapy as an option to support working through some of your struggles. I want you to know that there are moments in each of our lives when responsibilities, experiences, and feelings that we have can become overwhelming. During some of these most stressful times, it can be difficult to figure out what to do next on our own. I hope that is where I can be of some assistance. Making the decision to come to therapy might feel challenging; I strive to provide a warm, safe space for clients and their families, so that the entrance to treatment can happen more smoothly.
Out of a collaborative, therapeutic rapport, I find that clients are more prepared to clarify personal goals and make steps towards achieving them. This might mean building up your interpersonal relationships. Reducing social anxiety. Perhaps you are hoping to improve communication with loved ones. You might be in the midst of a significant life transition – anticipated or sudden – and are looking to approach this development more fluidly. I am here to listen.
I have previous experience working as a Family Therapist in both outpatient settings and wrap-around services. Most of the techniques I use stem from a core belief that each person has great potential to experience an enriched life. Much of my clinical orientation comes out of Narrative, Cognitive-Behavioral, Structural, and Intergenerational theory. I also encourage Mindfulness-Based techniques that cultivate self-awareness (in body and mind) and resiliency to handle change.
