I want to understand your reasons and goals for seeking support. Even if you don't know why you'd like to be in therapy, we can explore that together. While I am not seeing couples at this time, I have completed training with the Gottman Institute and feel confident in my ability to help people navigate issues in their intimate relationships and/or friendships.
I am client-centered, meaning I believe that you know yourself best. I will not tell you what issues are important, how you should make choices, or push an agenda for treatment.
I practice harm reduction, meaning I look for ways to encourage safety in peoples' choices. I aim to meet you where you are at. I won't hold any judgement or stigma for the choices you have made or are currently making.
I am curious, meaning that I actively want to know what makes you who you are and how that intersects with who you want to be.
I am bold, meaning that I will try to challenge and push at times when it feels safe, informed, and in the direction of more fully understanding your experience, actions, and reactions.
