When you carry around negative or unwanted feelings and experiences, they can become too big and can spill out of your pockets. Therapy gives the opportunity for someone else to listen to those feelings and experiences, alongside you, and discover the tools that can lead to self-respect, self-love, growth, and healing.

I approach clients from a solution focus perspective. How we perceive life events often affects how we view ourselves and those around us. Working with clients I focus on letting go of judgment placed upon us by ourselves as well as the judgment we believe is placed upon us by others, helping clients to shift their focus to resolving the conflict within their lives. This helps clients gain awareness of what is within their control opening themselves up to positive experiences within their reach.

In order to effectively manage the difficulties of life, it is important to examine them from a holistic perspective. Therapy provides a space to uncover underlying foundations of physical, mental, and emotional challenges. Through looking at one's whole experience, therapy can also offer us the opportunity to change the way we relate to these challenges, so that we can move forward with insight, clarity, and healing. Through introspection and reflection, we also are able to discover our inner capacity for strength and resilience, in even the darkest of times.

As individuals, we have a tendency of focusing and dwelling on our own negative experiences, which can cause us to lose focus on the present, and then ultimately coping with the negative situations inappropriately. As a therapist, I will assist the client on learning how those experiences have impacted your life, while also learning how to identify the appropriate coping skills, changing the thought process about those experiences and therefore learning how manage any future possible stressful situations. Learning how to stay grounded and present can be a very empowering tool as you begin to take back your life.
