Pursuing therapy is an act of love — for your past, present, and future selves; for your relationships; and for your life’s unfolding.
It is a way of saying, “My needs matter as much as the needs of those around me. My mental health is no less important than my physical health. My potential for growth is greater than the sum of my previous failures.”
I view therapy as an active partnership in which your needs and preferences lead the way. My clinical approach draws from acceptance and commitment, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness-based, and holistic modalities.
I am driven to consider the impact of societal norms on a client’s identity, with an emphasis on the intersection of gender disparities and feelings of inadequacy.
When you encounter your should’ve-been-, could’ve-been-, and what-if-selves, I’ll anchor you back in the present where we can focus on what needs healing.
As our work progresses, we’ll examine the thoughts and behaviors that add to your difficulties. By shifting your thinking and response patterns, you’ll form healthier ways of having your needs met.
My greatest fulfillment comes through empowering women to uncover the parts of themselves that are too often neglected:
The wise and self-compassionate parts; the confident, assertive, grounded parts; the resilient and the self-advocating parts that are only just emerging. I’ll encourage you to welcome each of these facets of yourself with openness and compassion.
Throughout our work, I will invite your feedback and engage with full transparency. I will honor your boundaries and ask that you honor mine.
When I falter (because I’m human too) I will offer an explanation and make room for your questions or concerns. You will always be fully seen, fully heard, and fully respected.
I believe that each client has the capacity to integrate her most difficult experiences with a fundamental desire to change.
Therapy isn’t always easy, but when you can begin to see the space for transformation that opens up by working through your concerns, that is when you can get in touch with your deepest self and make meaningful changes.
