Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all, so I collaborate with you and adapt to meet your specific needs. I take time to help you explore and understand how your past experiences impact your current ways of coping and worldview. Using this insight, we work to identify common themes and underlying patterns to unlearn and challenge negative thought patterns. Empathy and unconditional positive regard are key elements that help us build a connection to evoke empowerment and change. You are encouraged to take the lead during therapy as you are the expert on yourself. I will also equip you with skills and knowledge that you can use throughout your life to continuously accomplish your goals.
I work WITH you to understand your culture, upbringing, and other identities you hold and how they contribute to who and how you are, how you view the world and your concerns, as well as how you cope. I take a holistic approach to therapy to help improve your quality of life in the long term because you're more than your problems, and context matters. We will have honest but difficult conversations to help you gain insight so you can be your brightest, most authentic self.
***I also offer brainspotting to those who have a therapist as an adjunct service.***
