Welcome Common Ground Counseling. I understand each day is a new chapter in your life story, filled with unique experiences that shape who you are. Your personal history, the culture you’re part of, the values your family cherishes, and the education you’ve received have all woven the rich tapestry of your identity.
At the heart of our identity are the emotions that spring from our daily encounters. These emotions — powerful tools for self-awareness — act like signposts, guiding us through the maze of beliefs we hold about ourselves. Sometimes, these beliefs can become roadblocks to our happiness and success, especially if we don’t take the time to examine them closely.
I’m here to help you untangle the threads of your thoughts and feelings, to understand the core beliefs that define you. We’ll embark on this exploration with open hearts and minds, uncovering the narratives that you’ve carried within you, perhaps without even realizing it.
In my approach, I hold steadfast to a few key principles — inclusivity, empathy, and unwavering support. Your background, beliefs, culture, gender — none of these change the fundamental respect and understanding you deserve. In our sessions, you’ll find a safe space where every aspect of your being is acknowledged and valued.
In addition to individual counseling, I specialize in working with couples and families. Using a systemic lens, I view relationships as interconnected systems, where each individual’s wellbeing contributes to the health of the whole. Together, we will explore the dynamics of your relationships, understanding how each person’s narrative interweaves with the others.
My methodology is eclectic and evidence-based, blending various therapeutic techniques to tailor a unique path for each person, couple, and family. This personalized approach ensures that the therapy is as unique as you are, addressing your specific needs and goals.
