Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a therapist, my job is to help my clients find a greater sense of well-being - greater peace in themselves, more satisfying relationships, more rewarding careers. I'm honored to have the opportunity to work deeply with couples and individuals, supporting them in their paths of transformation as they create the life and relationships they truly want. I believe that the key to effective therapy is a strong alliance between client and therapist. I believe that when people choose to seek the consultation of a therapist in order to master challenges they are having in their lives, they should have a powerful voice in shaping what the therapy looks like and feels like. In my clinical work, I systematically seek feedback from my clients to ensure that the work we are doing in session is meeting their needs. When people choose to come to me for therapy, my mission is to support them in working on the goals that they have. I partner with my clients to create an approach that meets their preferences for attaining the positive growth they seek. Research continues to demonstrate that when therapists regularly engage clients in providing feedback on how the therapy is going, outcomes improve tremendously. As a therapist, my job is to facilitate a process that improves the well-being of my clients. I believe that change can happen quickly and am proud that most of the clients I see experience significant improvement in the first three sessions. My approach is grounded in cultivating a therapeutic relationship with my clients built on respect and trust. With nonjudgmental curiosity, I seek to understand what is important to the people who come to see me for therapy: What in their lives is working? What in their lives do they want to change? How can they mobilize their strengths to master their challenges? My approach is also grounded in mindfulness. We are all most able to meet the challenges of life when we are centered, present, and in touch with our innate strength and resilience. The stresses of life can quickly throw us into fight-or-flight reactivity mode where we lose our center, our power, and our clarity. A commitment to being mindful - to slowing down in order to deeply connect with ourselves and our inner wisdom - helps us meet the challenges of life and relationships in a more skillful way.

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
