What is Resilience?
Resilience is the capacity to recover from difficulties, to adapt, to have a toughness and elasticity. We cannot always control what happens to us, but we can control how we respond. Resilience gives us strength.
Often times we are stuck in unhealthy relational patterns, overwhelmed by our emotions, and unsure how to free ourselves. It can leave us feeling lost, scared, and lonely. What we need is to feel seen, heard, and accepted.
My therapeutic orientation is psychodynamic and interpersonal. I believe in going deeper to address underlying issues impacting our functioning and working on healthier skills and resilience. I understand that all clients are unique and will build personalized treatment goals. I take a client-centered, collaborative, non-judgmental, and strength-based approach towards clients’ goals.
I believe in cultivating an inclusive and welcoming therapeutic space. I am passionate about helping clients understand and embrace who they are, empower them to make changes, and achieve their goals.
I have had the opportunity to walk alongside my clients in times of immense suffering and witness the incredible vulnerability and strength of the human spirit. I am grateful to be invited into people’s precious narratives and share in their recovery and growth.
