Therapy doesn't have to be awkward. I get that it looks that way on TV and movies. Shoot, you may have tried out therapy in the past and it just felt like a bad date. But it doesn't have to be that way.
The most important part of therapy is the relationship and I work hard to connect with my clients so they know this is a space where they can feel heard, cared for, and understood. This isn’t just a job for me. You are trusting and sharing with me parts of your personal life and I don't take that lightly.
I believe that my current and past clients would tell you that some of my strengths would be my listening skills, my sense of humor, and my persistence to have you feel empowered. I validate my clients' experiences to remind them to be kind to themselves while also holding them accountable for their missteps. I'm like that best friend who will cheer you on with a strong "YASSS!" while still pushing you to be your higher self... all with therapeutic boundaries of course. *wink*
But I'm more than just a friendly face to talk to. I have been trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Structural Family Therapy (SFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Motivational Interviewing. I use techniques from these among other therapeutic approaches to help you reach your goals and learn new ways of finding what works for you. This is all tailored to you (your personality, your concerns, and your desires). That of course means you being an active participant and ready to do the "work". Understand that sometimes therapy doesn't immediately make people feel better. That's normal. Compare it to when you start doing anything new. It can be tough. But know that it gets easier as you continue to work through it and practice good habits. And you're not alone. You have support from me, your therapist. Therapists aren't fairy godmothers; more like your Google Maps while you're in the driver's seat. So buckle up and let's put this in drive!
