Her therapeutic approach is founded in an existential understanding of the human condition. Her technique incorporates compassion, presence, pragmatism, and occasionally irreverence to assist clients in overcoming whatever might be holding them back, be it anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, grief, an adjustment disorder, or experiences of trauma. She enjoys working primarily with adults of all ages and backgrounds, spiritual/faith perspectives, and cultures. She has experience in a variety of mental health settings, including crisis triage, residential, educational, and diversionary settings.
The normative developmental process involves interpreting our environment and the way that we fit into it. We may make conclusions about who we are, or about our worth as a person based on individual experiences that shape us. Traumatic experiences or dysfunctional family systems may further complicate this tenuous balance. We may find over time that our “go-to” preferences for dealing with relationships, hardships, and challenges have become the very things that are holding us back.
