Therapy can be vulnerable, and I congratulate you for taking the courageous steps to meet with me! My approach is to create an atmosphere that’s safe and comfortable for us to discuss your life challenges. While listening and valuing each person’s unique experience, I will take a collaborative approach to walk alongside you to figure out what’s best. I believe that recognizing relationship importance in the process of change is necessary to facilitate growth, which is where healing takes place. We will work through vulnerabilities and darkness, highlight strengths and resources you have, and work on embracing the life you strive to have.
