I view myself as a generalist clinician who has worked with a variety of adult clients with a range of presenting complaints. However, my clinical interests include those undergoing stressful life transitions, issues with identity, self-esteem, relationships, anxiety, low mood, and those who may simply say “I’m unhappy, but I don’t know why”. Self-understanding is a crucial aspect of mental health and overall well-being. Building insight into the way in which we view and engage with ourselves and the world around us provides a road map to use when navigating all aspects of life. Through therapy, I aim to increase one’s sense of who they are, what they want, and what is getting in the way. While I also view coping strategies as important for managing unpleasant emotions, I seek to first help my clients understand what, why, and when these strategies are most useful. Through these efforts, people often find that their distress diminishes, mood increases, and meaning and purpose in life becomes clearer.
