We are complex and multi-faceted individuals, far beyond the sum of our experiences. I believe that awareness, authenticity, and purpose are superpowers that lead us to our higher selves. In my counseling room, I want to know your truth and the story of your most authentic self. Healing is a journey, and I aim to create a space where we honor yours.
Together, we will work through current obstacles, griefs, resentments, and traumas. We will identify behavioral changes toward an optimal and mindful life. We will discuss your sense of drive, communication styles, relationships, and hopes for the future. We will label patterns that no longer serve you, form new habits, and add coping skills to your tool kit.
To facilitate this, I utilize a hybrid of psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy, combined with mindfulness, narrative, trauma-informed care, and strength-based approaches. What that means to me is that I am interested in understanding what happened in your past to make you your unique self, how you are processing things in the present, and finding ways to work together through your concerns using various evidence-based techniques.
