Individual Counseling

Individual counseling to take care of you.

Many people wonder what individual counseling is all about. Simply put, counseling is a professional, supportive relationship all about you. It is a process designed to help you experience more peace and satisfaction in your everyday life.

You may or may not know what you want to address in counseling. There may be a recurrent issue, or you may not be able to put a finger on what's weighing you down. Sometimes people seek counseling for support through a single incident. Don't worry if you're unsure. We can unpack what's happening and identify the issue(s) together. We can discuss how counseling can help, and how to get started. You may notice some relief after just scheduling your first appointment with me.

Perhaps you have never met with a counselor, or perhaps this is your fifth time. Either way, we can discuss your hopes and fears regarding counseling. I'm determined to make your time with me useful.

Research shows that at the core of successful counseling is a good therapeutic relationship; therefore,

I promise to focus on your strengths, collaborate with you, and empower you to be the best version of yourself.   

My approach to counseling incorporates aspects of mindfulness, self-compassion, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), and EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). You can also expect our work to incorporate aspects of existential therapy, which is about how you make meaning in life. Meaning making is a deeply enriching and fulfilling pursuit where you clarify and nurture the relationships and the values you hold most dear.
