My Approach & Philosophy
Everyone has strengths and the ability to grow both personally and relationally. Counseling can help us recognize and build upon strengths, give voice to our experiences, and develop new perspectives and patterns of relating to ourselves and others.
I provide a safe, accepting space for individuals, couples, and families to identify and process emotional experiences. I work with clients to develop insight into personal and relational patterns and express underlying needs to facilitate emotional connection and improve overall communication. I particularly enjoy working with couples and families because I can consider multiple perspectives and witness and address interactions directly in the session.
My approach to therapy is non-judgmental, strength-based, and trauma-informed. As a family/systems-based therapist, I believe it is crucial to consider our experiences within their broader contexts (e.g., family of origin, culture, society). I use client-centered interventions, adjusting my approach to what best suits clients and their values.
