My Therapeutic Approach
The world around us can feel overwhelming at times, especially within this brave new world in which we are all adjusting. Whether you are trying to find your way through anxious thoughts, to realize your identity, deal with life transitions, make your way through grief, or to understand your place in the world, I will be honored to hold the light for you as we explore the best path to enhance your well-being. I will meet you where you are and work collaboratively with you to tap into your inner strengths and resources, and enact meaningful change in your life.
I treat anxiety, grief, identity issues, life transitions, relationship concerns, perfectionism, phase of life issues, stress, and trauma. With an emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, my style is active and engaged as I integrate evidenced-based cognitive behavioral, existential, and humanistic therapies that will be tailored to you.
As a former competitive figure skater, my personal experiences with injury, athletic identity, intense training, the sacrifice needed to thrive in competitive environments, and transitioning out of sport have driven my passion to support the mental health and well-being of athletes/former athletes, coaches, and creative professionals, alike. If you are met with challenges of performing, balancing life as an athlete, facing injury and recovery, perfectionism, coach-athlete relationship issues, or transitioning out of sport, I can help. My approach to therapy is centered around you, as a whole person. Together, we will collaborate to find and utilize the tools to help manage life in and out of sport.
I am here to support your readiness, exploration, and process to help you begin to live your life to its full potential with purpose and meaning.
