Are you struggling with adjusting to change, coping with stress or navigating conflict? As a result, has this left you feeling overwhelmed or anxious? Has shame, guilt or negative self-talk been impacting you? Do you need help creating boundaries with your partner, family, or friends?
As a therapist, I believe in the saying, “you can’t pour from an empty cup.” My role is to help you explore areas of concern, develop coping skills, and gain insight about yourself. A primary focus of my practice is teaching self-compassion to help fill up your cup when life is feeling too difficult to navigate on your own. Using a person-centered approach, I value being authentic, compassionate and realistic with you. I emphasize finding a balance in both supporting and challenging my clients to meet their goals. I use a combination of techniques to support these goals (cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, strength-based and exposure response prevention).
I am drawn to helping individuals and families cope through life transitions, anxiety, substance use, interpersonal conflict, depression, and grief/loss. My specialization in addictions counseling allows me to support clients through a more focused lens when necessary. I appreciate connection through the vulnerability of our human experience. If you are interested in working with someone who prioritizes you or your families goals, book an appointment with me.
