My Approach to Therapy  

“I take a very client-centered approach to therapy.  I believe that you are the expert about your own story.  And I also believe that sometimes we need a judgement-free outside perspective to help us make better sense of our story as we process our past, move through our present, and prepare for our future.  I come from the mindset that life is hard and that struggle is in no way indicative that we have done something wrong, and it is nothing to be ashamed of. Struggle is also not something we should journey through alone.  Humans are wired for connection and receiving validation, reflection, and support from safe and trusted people around us is imperative to our health and healing.”

“People who are hurting don't need avoiders, protectors, or fixers.  What we need are patient, loving witnesses. People who sit quietly and hold space for us. People who stand in helpful vigil to our pain.” Glennon Doyle
