I once read a sign on a vending machine that read "Expect Change" - the same applies for therapy! You want to be your most authentic self and live life fully. You know there is more joy somewhere on the other side of suffering, but it's hard to see with the pressures and burdens of everyday living.
I want to offer you a safe space, radical acceptance, and genuine caring - mixed with professional training and technique - so you can become that authentic self, your "youest" you.
My psychotherapeutic approach is backed by research. You can ask questions, and confidently give informed consent for your plan of care.
My therapy style is grounded in the humanistic principles of acceptance and compassion. You and your journey of change are central to our work together.
My psychotherapy education is spiritually integrated and culturally sensitive. Your identity is a unique combination of characteristics that I appreciate and respect.
