Let’s cocreate a therapeutic space where you can give voice to your experience and be recognized for your authentic self without judgment, shame, or fear. Fundamental to my therapeutic philosophy working both with individuals and couples is that while we all crave actualization, closeness, and intimacy, we often find ourselves feeling stuck, alienated, and disconnected. We cling to our “go-to” strategies for getting our needs met because they are familiar, even when they no longer work for us and may even hurt us.
Together, let’s develop strategies that work for you, rather than against you. When we find purpose in our pain and meaning in our struggles through counseling, we forge a path forward that transcends our challenges and unlocks new possibilities.
Doing “life” differently can be both exhilarating and scary. Let’s take those first steps together.
I use an interactive and integrative approach that honors your past while also being goals-driven and forward-leaning. Our work together will draw upon your existing strengths and will uncover inner resources that perhaps you’ve underutilized or undervalued. I work from a cultural humility perspective and am committed to understanding what your identities mean to you and your place in the world.
No matter where you’re starting from, let’s get you where you want to go together. It’s never too early or too late to make a change.
