I tru­ly enjoy help­ing my clients gain insight, find relief from their dif­fi­cul­ties, make changes, and gain per­son­al growth. My approach is strength-based and inte­gra­tive. Resilience is the process and out­come of suc­cess­ful­ly adapt­ing to dif­fi­cult or chal­leng­ing life expe­ri­ences, espe­cial­ly through men­tal, emo­tion­al, and behav­ioral flex­i­bil­i­ty and adjust­ment to exter­nal and inter­nal demands. I hope to help you become more resilient. Also, psy­chother­a­py is a col­lab­o­ra­tive process. As your psy­chol­o­gist, I will guide you to cre­ate and help achieve your treat­ment goals. I will help cre­ate a safe space in which you can authen­ti­cal­ly explore your expe­ri­ences while being seen, heard, and val­i­dat­ed. Your suc­cess in treat­ment also depends in part on your will­ing­ness to be hon­est with your­self, to open up in ses­sions, to share any pref­er­ences you may have dur­ing the treat­ment process, and to make the changes that you seek. Last­ly, mak­ing changes is not easy. I hope you find my light-heart­ed and down-to-earth approach help­ful while you embark on your jour­ney of heal­ing and transformation.
