I am fairly eclectic in regards to my therapy approach but one thing always remains true- you are the expert in your own life. My role is to assist you in figuring out how to navigate it in a way that makes sense (and hopefully happiness) for you. I typically pull from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing approaches but may draw from other therapy theories if it makes sense in the context.
Although I have experience with many areas of mental health and wellness, my specialties include:
Teens and Young Adults- Seeking support around growing up and the struggles connected with maturing as I've spent many years of my career working with this population
Polyamorous and Monogamous Couples- Improving your relationship(s) to build healthier connections
Stress and Anxiety- Learning coping skills, challenging behavior, and shifting behavior to decrease anxiety and symptoms related to negative stress
If the above specialties are not connected to why you're currently seeking therapy but you believe I may still be the therapist for you, please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss.
I've had the pleasure to connect to a lot of different people through my work. I think it's because I respect that the people I work with are the experts in their own lives while I'm here mostly to help you sort things out. I don’t believe that therapy is about telling you what to do in your life. I also don’t think that what I may want for my own life is something that I should push on you. Sometimes it can be difficult to find your way out of the forest when all you can see are trees.
