How I Help...

As your therapist, I will learn about you and help you by asking about a variety of topics including your family of origin, past traumas and anxieties and current moments of dysregulation. 


I want to get to know you, I will see your strengths as quickly as you can tell me about them and then I will help you to remember or use them when you are struggling with your biggest challenges. 


I am here to be a non-judgmental and compassionate guide, while also holding you accountable for making the change you want in your life. I hope to help you gain some new perspectives, which might lead you to feeling differently. And I believe you will gain hope knowing the possibility that things can be different (especially if you are willing to do the work).
