My approach focuses on the immediate concerns that brought you to therapy, with a deep appreciation that problems can be complicated and multilayered. In addition to helping you cope with pressing issues, coming to therapy can also help you understand yourself better, laying the groundwork for a more satisfying and fulfilling life.
The benefit of therapy is directly tied to the relationship between client and therapist. Therefore, psychotherapy is a collaborative process, and I attempt to foster an atmosphere of warmth, safety, and support. Within this context, we will examine and challenge what might be keeping you stuck.
