I imagine you are ready for some relief and a change. You suspect a partner could be helpful even though it feels more natural to do things by yourself. I understand that mindset. Therapy with me offers you a non-judgmental, safe place to explore your history, current situation, and goals for the future.
To support you in learning to acknowledge your strengths so that you can rebuild a sense of self-worth and regain focus and energy. My style is direct and collaborative because I believe that you’re the expert of your life. I will ask questions that may spark a new idea for you offering observations where appropriate. While I don’t always sit silently and nod my head, silence and time for reflection are important to the process. You can count on me to hold space for you with care and respect when things become hard or painful.
A Little About Me
Throughout my life, I thrive on working with people in the pursuit of their goals. I became a psychotherapist at mid-life. It was a long held goal. In fact, since elementary school. What I love about psychotherapy is that the client gets to be the author of their goals as opposed to an organization. I find deep exploration into client’s unique stories and traveling with them to a point of growth to be a huge privilege that I take very seriously.
Prior to the career change, I worked at various organizations within positions of leadership. I intimately understand the pressures of a 24/7 work world. It can cause stress on self and relationships. I was passionate about training and development, helping young leaders find their voice, and being a mentor. Going back to school to change careers was humbling and challenging. In the end, 100% worth it!
