I believe the relationship between the client and therapist is an important catalyst for change – a relationship that turns tension into intention. In therapy, I come alongside you by providing an open, trusting, and safe environment where you can experience powerful emotions that give you clarity and hope on your journey towards connection and wellness. Through the use of evidence-based treatments, a here-and-now approach, and a collaborative relationship, we work together to achieve your goals.
Humans are relational beings and we desire to experience connection with one another. We learn how to relate to others through our relational experiences, thoughts about ourselves, and family and cultural experiences. Sometimes we learn and practice behaviors that promote disconnection. And when we experience disconnection, it produces tension, stress, and struggle. However, when we experience connection in relationships – when we are seen, heard, and valued – we develop purpose and meaning for our lives. I became a counselor because I want to help others experience connection and thrive.
“Love has an immense ability to help heal the devastating wounds that life sometimes deals us. Love also enhances our sense of connection to the larger world. Loving responsiveness is the foundation of a truly compassionate, civilized society.”
