I help people heal from past hurts, to move forward in their lives and relationships.
I became a therapist because I believe in the power of change. I also believe that healing can best happen in relationship, sometimes beginning in therapy.
I work with relationships and individuals to improve self-esteem, lessen depression and anxiety, strengthen interpersonal boundaries, and improve communication and assertiveness skills.
I am an emotion-focused, client-centered therapist. That’s a fancy way of saying I believe that you know best how it feels to be you. That belief is at the core of my approach which is both strengths-based and empowering. I start by being creative, compassionate, and curious about “all the puzzle pieces” that make you, you. Acknowledging you as the expert of your own unique experience, I serve as a resource for helping you feel and work better in your life.
I have tools and experience for working with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, life transitions, domestic violence, codependency, loss and trauma. Through work with boundaries in particular, I find, we can get more of what we want, and less of what we don’t want in our relationships.
Each person’s therapy is different. Therapy is about finding out what works best for you in different situations. Your therapy will be focused on helping you to feel better out in the world and within yourself.
Call me today to begin a new chapter in your life’s story.
