A BIT ABOUT THERAPY
I work with young adults who find themselves struggling with life being harder than they expected it to be. This often is accompanied by feeling lost, confused or discouraging communication patterns with loved ones. Therapy with me helps you to learn about what contributes to you feeling the way you do, helps you recognize and change ineffective patterns, and helps you move towards feeling closer to others while also honoring your own personal limits.
I implement effective evidenced based methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client and caretaker alike. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.
Feeling stuck, unfulfilled or lost in life often pops up during transitions in life (moving, graduating, a change in relationship, loss, etc.) Therapy helps you to slow down, learn to tend to yourself, and offers a non-judgmental space to explore & express these feelings, concerns and confusion.
I help people who are ready to feel un-stuck and want to feel more fulfilled & content in their lives. I am up front and "real," while highly nurturing and caring; I believe in the transformative effects of the therapeutic relationship.
I am trained in DBT, ACT and CBT.
My training, education and experience allow me to provide treatment for concerns including, but not limited to, the following:
Depression and sadness
Anxiety and feeling overwhelmed
Mindfulness and Self-Compassion
Relationship concerns and communication skills
Emerging adult life transitions
