“...we all have the full capacity for actualization and fulfillment in our lives as engaged human beings...”
I came to psychotherapy and counseling later in life after years of working in the restaurant industry and as a freelance artist and designer. I decided I wanted to work one-on-one with individuals to help them heal, grow, and look within themselves. This decision was part of my own search for meaning and purpose. I have the unshakable belief that we all have the full capacity for actualization and fulfillment in our lives as engaged human beings living in tune with the world. Getting to that place can be hard to do on one’s own. It was for me. Helping others through this journey is the main focus of what I do in my practice.
I bring to this process my study of multiple forms of therapy and the underlying human psychology which informs them. I focus on evidence-based practices with sound research-driven support. These include solutions-based CBT, DBT, and EMDR, as well as emotional regulation and interpersonal development skills. But I believe these new therapies are only part of the right approach for many. Often an examination of our trauma and the past can lead us to find we need a focus on the older paths of mindfulness, creativity, healing, and a journey to find the self. Each individual will need a different combination of the new and the old as well as different tools, approaches, and practices. Working together with my clients, I utilize my education and skillsets in these areas to help shape a personalized program of therapy.
