The power of taking a chance and opening up to a therapist is an incredible feat. While it may feel uncomfortable and/or scary at first, opening your mind to the possibility of growing and getting through what life throws your way, can bring amazing benefits.
There are many different models of individual therapy. My approach is to take skills from each model and apply them in the way I feel will work best with that individual person. I look at people as a whole person, not just what they initially tell me about themselves or the initial reason they sought out therapy.
Above all, I believe it is critical that the relationship between a therapist and client is strong. Without a trusting, comfortable, and honest relationship with a therapist, the process and outcome of therapy may not be as great as it could be! Sometimes it takes a few tries to find the best therapist for you, but don't give up! My goal is to allow you to feel listened to, guided, empowered, cared for, and overall believed in, because sometimes we may feel alone and when that happens, I want you to know that I'm here.
