It seems inevitable that there may be aspects of life that are more challenging to cope with than others. We may find ourselves overwhelmed by life—particularly when caring for others in times of worry, when we are especially busy or when caught by surprise. The build-up of these emotions can often lead to engaging in behaviors that only intensify this painful experience. Therapy is a journey that may be difficult and uncomfortable at times; but it is often in discomfort where we see the most change in these domains.
My goal is to create a safe space for you to be vulnerable throughout your journey of self-exploration and acceptance. Working from an integrative approach allows me to collaborate with each of my clients and tailor a plan to fit their individual needs. I will often use aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to reframe negative thought patterns and incorporate relational cultural therapy (RCT) techniques to explore the important interpersonal relationships in my clients' lives. Via these and other methods, we will work together to develop new coping skills and approaches to achieve the changes you wish to see in your life. It is important for me that you feel listened to, validated, and empowered to make these changes during our time together and moving forward.
