My approach to therapy
My approach to therapy is person-centered and solution-focused. I think that with knowledgeable support and affirming companionship we can do anything. I validate you as the expert of your reality and create an environment where you can teach me what your life is like, unassumingly. Collaboratively we will work together exploring your world without shaming. With a listening ear, curiosity and acceptance we can explore what the root cause of issues are.
Some clients that I work with suffer from anxiety, depression, stuck places, trauma, grief, discontentment in their careers or relationships. I also am competent in couples counseling from an Attachment Theory perspective where most challenges come from a lack of communication. I work with "stuck" couples wanting more intimacy and ways to resolve conflicts/crisis. Together, we can discover your full potential and at the end of our sessions it is my goal that you are equipped to handle life's challenges with confidence.
