My approach is to be client-centered, meaning move at your pace and respect your process. Change is so difficult otherwise you wouldn’t be considering reaching out for help. I do not pressure clients nor do I set the agenda. You decide the direction of the session. You decide your long term goals. My role is to be present with you, to reflect any patterns I hear, and to help you challenge any stories that are repeating and causing you pain. I have been described as authentic, warm and empowering by my clients. I have a slightly goofy personality and can use humor in session. Sometimes we need to laugh at the irony of life. I share my own struggles, when appropriate, because I want you to know that you are not alone. My areas of interest are trauma/PTSD, anxiety, grief/loss, self-esteem and body image. My greatest joy is witnessing a client recover from trauma and feel empowered.
