My Therapeutic Style & Approach

Are you looking for clarity about how to improve the quality of your life? I can help. Maybe you want to work on strengthening your relationships, are feeling anxious or depressed, or need some guidance in coping with a recent life transition. Or, perhaps you are here because your child or teen is struggling with the challenges that accompany childhood and adolescence. If any of this rings true for you, then you're in the right place. In our sessions, I will help you to develop an increased understanding of yourself. We will explore ways to enrich your life with added meaning and purpose, and you will learn practical, real-world skills and strategies along the way. I utilize a variety of insight-oriented and solution-focused techniques, which are evidence-based and are tailored to meet your unique needs. My approach to therapy is warm, creative, and collaborative, with a focus on building a strong therapeutic relationship. It would be a privilege to be a part of your journey.
