“The most significant predictor of successful therapy is feeling like you have a strong therapeutic alliance with your therapist. If you don’t feel that you and your therapist are a good fit, it’s going to be tough to feel good about the work you are doing. This is why I strive to connect with each of my clients and understand the unique circumstances and concerns that have brought them to therapy. I attempt to make sure that every one of my clients feels heard, understood, and positive about the therapeutic journey they are embarking on.
I’ve had the pleasure of providing therapy to a diverse group of adolescents, individuals, couples, and families experiencing a wide range of issues relating to depression, self-esteem, trauma, anxiety, stress, family conflict, marital conflict, and various life adjustments. And in almost every situation I’ve come across, the clients had the tools and strength to get through whatever was in front of them. They simply needed some help unlocking or finding those tools and strength. And that’s how I view my role as a therapist; someone who helps YOU figure out what’s best for YOU. After all, who is a better expert on the subject of you than yourself?
Therapy is rarely “one size fits all”, which is why it is important for my clients and I to collaborate to identify the solutions to the unique concerns they are facing. To help guide this process, I like to utilize elements from many therapeutic approaches or perspectives, most notably strength-based practices, Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Family Systems.
I am eager to work with you to help achieve your goals and live a more stress-free life!”
