Are We a Good Match?
If you want to work on your own mental health and well-being and are considering if my approach could work for you, think about if any of the following resonate with you:
Do any of these sound like you? These are all problems my clients have shared at the beginning of our therapy sessions. They have been able to overcome these and other challenges by committing to the therapeutic process and making real changes outside of sessions. Many of the people I work with report feeling happier, more confident, and more able to cope with challenges and improve their mental and emotional health thanks to our sessions. If you are ready open up about your struggles, make positive changes, and try out new tools to cope with your issues and improve your life, I am confident that therapy could make a big change in your life.
My Approach: Accountability + Action = Change
Many people come into therapy knowing that their life feels bad right now, but aren't sure exactly why. Others have good insight into what their issues are, but aren't sure how to fix them. And yet others have gone to therapy before and built up some coping skills that work for them, but want to add on new strategies and tools into their mental health toolkit. No matter where you are in your journey to better yourself, therapy can be an excellent tool in improving your emotional and mental health.
I work with many different types of people who want to work on many different types of issues, and have found that the consistent formula for therapy is: Accountability + Action = Change.
Accountability: Taking responsibility over our mental and emotional health, our unhealthy reactions or coping mechanisms, and our own role in sustaining unhealthy or unhappy relationships.
Action: Being willing to try out new ways to think about or deal with our problems. If we don't change, neither does the problem!
Change: The ways our lives can be better if we are committed to building better emotional and mental health.
Tools & Strategies
In our sessions, I'll be a compassionate guide who understands things from your perspective, meets you where you are at, and gives you tools, strategies, and advice to help you live a happier life. I help people reflect on themselves, identify ways they can live happier and more fulfilling lives, and cheerlead them as they make positive changes. I use evidence-based tools rooted in:
Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT)
Family Systems Therapy
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Through supporting my clients in better understanding themselves and their difficulties in life, I've helped individuals shape lives they are excited to live. My clients tell me they've been to achieve these things thanks to our sessions:
Stronger awareness of themselves, a better sense of self, and higher self-esteem and self-worth
A sharper toolkit to deal with anxiety, depression, stress, disordered eating, and other mental health issues
Improved understanding of and control over their reactive patterns (sometimes called "emotional regulation")
Secure attachment and better relationships with others
Increased confidence in expressing their needs and setting boundaries
Feeling more comfortable being vulnerable with their partner or family
Figuring out whether to continue or end their relationship
Navigating life transitions
Taking new directions in life, such as changing careers or cities
