Kerri’s Approach To Therapy

As a therapist, my philosophy is grounded in the power of open exploration within the safety of our therapeutic space. I specialize in guiding individuals and couples through the intricacies of communication and relational distress, supporting the LGBTQ+ community in their journey of acceptance and identity, and navigating the ebbs and flows of life’s many transitions.

My approach is to consider you within the context of the systems you inhabit, from your family to your workplace, and beyond. This perspective aims to foster new insights and understanding, enhancing connections to others and deepening self-compassion. My ability to quickly build rapport is at the heart of my practice, helping you feel recognized and validated in your truest self.

Creating an inclusive and non-judgmental environment is essential for me. It’s a place where you can explore all emotions and experiences freely, with unconditional support and hope. I am here to empower you to reach the goals that you aspire to achieve. Every step of our journey together is a step towards the positive change you deserve, and it’s a genuine joy for me to witness and facilitate your progress.
