My approach to therapy is to make treatment more approachable and less clinical so that you feel comfortable exploring issues and developing new skills that are holding you back from a fulfilling life. My approach to therapy involves being in the “here and now”; while also understanding how difficult experiences from our past can affect the present. I believe in emphasizing the development of a collaborative relationship between therapist and client while fostering a safe, nonjudgmental environment that gives people the freedom to explore and understand their feelings and thoughts.

Change begins with the realization that the way you are experiencing life is not in alignment with your values and vision for yourself. For change to continue, this awareness needs to inspire the willingness to leave unhelpful beliefs and actions behind and build new strengths and supports. I meet clients at wherever they are in the process of developing a life that is balanced, inspiring, fulfilling, and genuine to their own goals.

You’ve been working so hard to keep it all together, yet life still feels messy and overwhelming. Anxiety keeps you up at night, and perfectionism destroys any sense of success you start to experience. You’re trying to balance a relationship, get ahead in school or your career, and all the while you’re trying to convince everyone that you’re in control and you know exactly what you’re doing. It’s exhausting, and it’s not getting you any closer to the life you thought you would have by now. You’re here because you are ready to make a change. Let me walk beside you through the process.

Have you reviewed multiple write ups on Psychology Today looking for the right therapist? Do you feel confused because there are so many individuals listed that are willing and ready to help? The right "fit" is so important to me and I hope that you might consider my holistic and uplifting approach to treatment. I am so honored and humbled to help people on their path to healing and I strive to keep therapy relevant and comfortable. Most clients tell me, "You are not like any therapist that I have ever met before!". I always take this as a compliment.

It's vitally important to find someone you can trust, who 'gets' you; someone who respects your values, the meaning of your most important relationships, and helps you understand the context of the problems you face. You also want a therapist who will be straightforward with you about your role in problems, and what steps you need to take. You want a person with solid credentials and experience, yet who is open and willing to listen, and who will consider a variety of treatment options with you. You need someone who is going to help you be curious about yourself, and explore what a better quality of life means to you.

Undoubtedly, the communities we serve are rich with resources. Let’s face it though. A very crucial resource that is sorely lacking in the cities we serve are providers who truly understand the obstacles poverty has put on families, and the unfortunate burden they are left with when expected to carry on as if nothing is wrong. The weight of this burden on families and individuals alike takes a huge toll and may yield adverse effects. HEAR ME when I tell you that YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
