You may be seeking therapy because you’re dissatisfied with yourself in some way. Perhaps you have persistent sadness or anxiety getting in the way of your daily experiences. You may feel lonely, even in the presence of others. You know mentally what needs to happen, and yet nothing seems to budge. Even worse, it becomes a perpetuating cycle. I help clients develop better relationships with themselves. Together, we might co-create a mindfulness practice and uncover self-defeating thought patterns. Sometimes sessions are more about having space to share your experiences and feelings leading to increased self awareness. Or you may be very self aware and yet frustrated with your lack of progress. Adding kindness and patience in your inner dialogue can help in surprising ways. Whether you are looking for more spaciousness or practical tools, I am proud to offer both.
I work with a wide array of populations. These include young adults developing their career, folks hoping to understand and better cope with depression/anxiety. I have a special interest in sexual and romantic orientations, including polyamory and everything under the asexual umbrella. I also work well with histories of self harm and suicide ideation. Instead of shying away from these topics, I find they often hold rich insights when approached with openness and curiosity.
I would describe my style of therapy in a single word: Authentic. I am called to be a therapist because I am genuinely interested in people and motivated to help. If you are looking for a blank slate therapist, I may not be for you. I make myself available to questions and may also share ways that I’m personally impacted, even touched by our work.
Something unique to my practice I would like to mention are my personal interests in spirituality, astrology, tarot, dreams and enneagram. I invite any reflections you may have on these topics and will follow your lead.
