Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that people can learn new ways to live that serve them better with the support of a caring, knowledgeable therapist. My specialties include grief, loss, illness, caregiving, childhood developmental trauma, traumatic incidents, and communication. I help clients by providing new approaches to understanding and coping with stressors in their lives. I believe in somatic work (connection with feelings), psychoeducation (specific readings, podcasts or videos), cognitive work (understanding, and possibly changing, thoughts), and self-care. I am extremely empathetic, respectful of every client's individuality, nonjudgmental, and strength-based.
