My Goals for My Work:
Historically, our society has maintained some unhealthy expectations of what it means to be successful. Even though most people will, at some point in their life, encounter difficulties that would benefit from external counsel, many of us still feel uncomfortable expressing a need for help. But if you didn’t already know this—seeking out help is an act of courage, a leap of faith. By doing so you are taking responsibility for your life in a way that many do not. This act will not only benefit you, but also your community, and maybe even begin to transform our society for the better.
As a psychologist, my goal is to help people learn healthy and adaptive ways to cope with the challenges of life. Through this process I assist my clients in developing greater insight into their own psychological needs, strategies to tend to their past emotional wounds, and resources to make peace with their painful and/or anxious feelings. Although, at times, challenging, this process can be life changing, and I consider it a distinct privilege to be able to join people along this journey.
