In Eastern Time

Are there any recurring themes or issues you’ve noticed as you treat people in your area of specialization, and how has this insight guided your approach?

Change is our daily experience. We have to work to handle the constant adjustments. It can feel like and is a form of trauma. Change is double sided. It has moments of loss and pain but also chance for growth and joy. Therapy is about acknowledging the grief and celebrating the gains.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

Its a relationship. It will require work. But its about creating a conversation around the bad as well as the good. Therapy is truly about me holding space for you to share, express emotions, process things, and react however you need to.

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I am a very compassionate and curious person. I am also blunt. I use these skills to help people feel comfortable talking and sharing who they are authentically. I also use it to push into the hard spaces and explore different perspectives.
