Areas of Focus

Teenage Therapy

Being a teenager in today's world can be tough. From social media challenges, to bullying, to the rigors of schoolwork and demands of homework, feelings of anxiety, depression, and isolation are becoming more common for teenagers. I am here to listen and help guide you through your obstacles so you can feel more confident out in the world and develop more coping strategies.   

Adult Therapy

Quality of life improves when we take care of ourselves holistically. My approach looks at the influences of various experiences of the self- mental, physical, social, and spiritual, to gain a robust understanding of your experience as a unique individual, so that I can help support you in the direction that you want to go.

Couples Therapy and Family Therapy

Romantic partnerships have the potential to be a beautiful connection in life and can transform our experience of ourselves and the way we view the world. This intimate and powerful connection can sometimes get off-track and partners find themselves stuck in cycles of frustration, disconnection and overwhelm. I provide couples with the opportunity to look at where they started, where they are now, and where they would like to go. I work to allow for stronger bonds, more direct and thoughtful communication, and a healthy and satisfying connection as the couple moves into the future. 

 

Families can be a wonderful source of support, strength, and connection. Sometimes, past experiences or unsaid hurts can show up in present day family dynamics in a way that family members don't experience as support, strength, and connection. My approach with families is to give a place for members to share honestly and respectfully so that they can move forward with a more functioning and enjoyable relationship.

My Approach

My Approach

When I work with individuals and families, I start by gaining a clear understanding of the desired goals for treatment. Intentional goal setting can be a great way to understand what you are truly looking to change in your life. As time goes on, goals may evolve or change, but the process of working to better understand the self will continue to grow throughout. My approach combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic therapy, and incorporates a trauma-informed perspective.  Therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy work together to get to know your thoughts and thought patterns and provide relief from stuck patterns. Trauma-informed therapy helps us get to know and listen to the various parts of you that have developed over time, so that you can create more self-energy and unburden your mind and body from past trauma. Finally, by utilizing a strengths-based perspective, we can help you increase feelings of hope, compassion, and warmth within yourself.

 

A commitment to highlighting your strengths is continuously at the forefront of my treatment approach. Everyone has powerful and valuable strengths that they have developed throughout the course of their life. Sometimes, these strengths just need to be rediscovered and given loving attention to, in order to bring them back to life.  We can rediscover your strengths together.
