Learn meaningful ways of connecting to yourself & others

I believe psychotherapy helps people address their concerns in different ways. Psychotherapy is designed to provide safety, structure, routine, and reliability when individuals are often feeling anchorless, confused, or afraid. However, I believe that in order for psychotherapy to be effective, it is the relationship that a therapist and client create together that provides room for growth and change. That relationship can be more easily established when the therapist is open, understanding, and non-judgmental. I believe that people sometimes come to therapy looking for symptom relief (e.g., alleviate depressive symptoms, alleviate anxiety), and learn through therapy that they also have the right to grow, thrive, and enjoy life (e.g., seek joy, happiness, and satisfaction).
