I prioritize establishing a genuine and trusting therapeutic relationship within which you feel heard, understood, and able to focus on the changes you desire for yourself.  My approach is collaborative, insight-oriented, and considerate of your unique cultural and personal context.  I believe that sometimes factors out of our immediate awareness can contribute to distress and keep us feeling stuck.  I find it beneficial to explore conscious factors as well as underlying causes for symptoms or difficulties.  As you gain a clearer understanding of yourself, including what is and is not working for you, we can work toward helping you make meaningful change. We can work to understand your past experiences as well as current concerns and can explore alternate and more adaptive ways to manage stressors.
