How I Help Clients Thrive
My approach in therapy begins with understanding that each person has their own unique story. As you unpack your personal journey, you can be confident that I will work to create a nonjudgmental environment where you can trust and feel safe. I will provide supportive listening with care and compassion.
My passion is to help clients overcome obstacles that may be keeping them from living their best life. I integrate several theoretical orientations that research has proven successful including Emotionally Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. We will collaboratively work through issues and set achievable goals. We will regularly evaluate progress and make any necessary adjustments.
My goal is to provide hope and stability as you become empowered to reach your full potential. I would consider it a privilege to walk alongside you on your journey.
What I Do For Self-Care
Self-care is something I encourage clients to participate in. Making time for ourselves is not always easy but it can be a significant element in our healing journeys. Self-care should be tailored to fit each person’s life. My self-care includes golf. I began playing several years ago in a mixed league with my husband and we continue to make it a priority. Not only is it fun, but also allows us time to reconnect. Spending time with family and friends is also something I enjoy. We can often be found playing games or just hanging outside having a good time. This is important to me as it allows me to recharge.
Favorite Subject to Read About
My favorite subjects to read include attachments and boundaries. Many years ago I began studying boundaries and learned why they are used, what they look like, and how they can bring healing to broken relationships. I began studying and researching attachment several years ago and am excited at the attention it is receiving in the healing of individuals and their interpersonal relationships.
