My Approach to Therapy
As a systems therapist, I believe that overall health, wellness, and life satisfaction is predicated on the quality of our relationships. My goal is to support clients in discovering how their existing relationships, both with themselves and others, impacts the problems they are experiencing. I seek to nurture a collaborative and individualized approach to therapy, as each person has their own set of unique circumstances.
There is a heavy stigma around the decision to pursue therapy. While diagnoses can be helpful in explaining symptoms observed by the eye, I work primarily from an emotionally and relationally based perspective to expand the awareness of stressors that can induce or exacerbate mental, emotional, and behavioral challenges. By focusing on contextual factors, hope and control can feel much more attainable. I utilize a variety of different therapeutic approaches to promote growth that is suitable for each client(s) based on their needs, goals, and personality.
Life is hard…AND meaningful connections help foster resiliency and serve as a protective factor when it feels impossible. Allow me to help you learn how to achieve healing for long term happiness.
