What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

You may have talked to other therapists (or friends) who didn’t understand your sensitivity or who you felt judged by. I offer a safe space free of judgment and full of empathy. As a highly sensitive person myself, I understand firsthand the struggles that women who feel deeply encounter. I live it myself on a daily basis! I’ve also been in the client chair and know how difficult it is to be vulnerable with a therapist who just doesn’t seem to “get it.” In our sessions, you won’t just get a trained therapist; you’ll get someone who truly understands what you are going through. Clients describe me as down-to-earth, friendly, comforting, and helpful. I focus on forming a genuine human connection first and foremost so that therapy feels less intimidating, creating a space where your best healing can occur. Our sessions can be a mixture of discussing recent life events, processing past experiences, and learning new skills to apply to your present life. I’ll mix in some light humor so those hard conversations will feel less heavy too!

What does a first session with you look like?

The first session will be an intake appointment which will last 50 minutes. During an intake appointment, we discuss your history (mental, medical, family, etc), your primary concerns and difficulties, and what led you to seeking therapy at this time. We will work together to develop specific therapy goals that will be reviewed regularly throughout treatment. We will discuss informed consent and confidentiality, situations where confidentiality may be broken, and I will answer any additional questions you have.

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?

Here are some typical themes of struggles I see in the clients I work with: You’re someone who struggles with saying no to others, which leads to overextending yourself and you set unrealistic expectations for yourself that are impossible to meet. Maybe you also… -feel guilty for choosing what’s best for you, especially when others disagree with it -seek validation and approval from others and question your own judgment and decisions -feel like a bother or burden to others when you share your real thoughts and feelings -often feel worried about things that “could happen” or the “what ifs” of what could go wrong -feel like it’s your responsibility to anticipate the needs of others and make sure they are taken care of or pleased with you OR MAYBE... You get flustered when you have a lot to do in a short amount of time and feel easily overwhelmed by loud noise, crowds of people, bright lights, or strong smells. You might not be sure what this means and you may also: -need time alone to recover after spending time socializing with others -experience strong emotions that feel intense and difficult to manage -believe that you’ll only fit in with others when you hide parts of yourself -avoid confrontation and conflict at all costs -have difficulty relaxing, resting, and slowing down because of society’s expectation of “urgency”
