My approach is humanistic/existential in nature, which means I endeavor to understand how you see the world and focus on how life is understood by making sense of experiences, increasing personal awareness, and reflecting on choices. By examining experiences and arriving at a sense of “making sense,” you are able to have keener awareness of your needs and purpose in life. An existential focus in therapy asserts that “issues” are part of everyone’s experience in life, and rather than avoiding life’s challenges, this approach highlights facing life’s challenges by engaging with life, rather than being a bystander.
