What is therapy?
I believe that therapy is a space where we can create new beliefs, meanings, and perspectives about ourselves, others, and the world. This process can bring about a new way of being in the world, with others, and with oneself.
Who is therapy for?
If you are experiencing any (or any combination) of the following, individual psychotherapy could be helpful:
- stress, anxiety, depression
- lack of purpose or meaning
- life transition(s)
- difficulties in relationship(s)
- repeating destructive patterns
- difficulty regulating moods
- current or past traumas
- feeling stuck
- low self-esteem
This list isn’t comprehensive of what therapy might be effective for, but these are some of the issues I have experience working with.
My approach is Existential and Humanistic in nature. I will offer presence, listening, reflection, and interpretation in order to support and accompany you on your unfolding journey.
By engaging in weekly therapy, one might find expanded ways of being in their lives, as indicated by more purpose and flexibility both within themselves and in relationships.
As with all therapies, honesty, trust, and courage are foundational to this process. By exploring beliefs, narratives, and habits from your life, new ways of showing up in the world may emerge.
Although the foundation of my approach is Existential and Humanistic, I’m also influenced by mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Psychodynamic theory, and Focusing (Gendlin).
