Therapy is a collaborative process to access your most authentic self
Nobody else has lived your life. You and I are a team – and your job is to be the expert of your own lived experience. When we work together, I’m listening and fully engaging with what you have to say. I’m not here to give advice, boss you around, or tell you what to do. I’m here to help you identify your own goals, give you feedback on places you might feel stuck, and help guide you to your best self.
Therapy provides a non judgmental space removed from everyday life
One of the things I think is really valuable about therapy is that it is a space apart – away from the people you interact with every day. Even (or especially) people who love us dearly can have their own expectations about who we are supposed to be, how we are supposed to act, or who we are supposed to love. In the therapy room, you’re able to be who you are without any judgements or expectations. You can focus on yourself without pressures from anyone else.
Therapy is your personal journey towards healing and self discovery
At the end of our work together, you will have greater clarity about your goals and direction in life. You’ll be able to identify and replace the negative thought patterns that have made you feel stuck. You’ll learn a whole toolbox of coping skills. You’ll learn to more fully access all of your emotions in a healthy way, without bottling them up or exploding. You’ll be able to notice and appreciate all parts of your identity, even parts that might have scared you before. You’ll learn to identify your own boundaries and values. I hope that at the end of our work together, you’ll feel more authentically you than you ever have before.
I am a licensed independent clinical social worker (#LW60995137) My work utilizes an anti-oppression lens with a focus on intersectionality and is informed by Mindfulness practice, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and trauma-informed care. I enjoy working with adults throughout the lifespan, especially LGBTQ adults.
