In therapy, I strive to create a safe environment because I understand that seeking help can be uncomfortable and perhaps difficult. After all, therapy is about change and growth. In our sessions, we can develop a collaborative relationship focused on empowering you and helping you develop the emotional agility you need to manage your life in a way that satisfies you. I will bring a respectful, client-focused style and curiosity to explore your goals and motivations to our relationship. I will also bring a holistic perspective and knowledge of a variety of modalities including CBT, DBT, ACT, Solution Focused, Psychodynamic and Mindfulness. However, you are the expert on you; no one knows you as well as you do. You will bring that knowledge, that expertise, as well as a willingness to explore your goals, motivations and even ambivalence to our collaborative relationship. Together we can develop a map, and I will help you travel to your destination.
