About

We all may experience difficulties and stresses in life that can negatively affect how we feel about ourselves and our ability to live or lives. When problems take hold, we can feel stuck. It can be helpful to have a place to explore what is causing difficulty and find solutions to move out of the problem. I work with people who want to take their lives back from the effects of the problems they are stuggling with. Some examples of the problems I have helped clients with are depression, anger, grief, impacts of trauma, relationship difficulties, work/school related stress and effects of injustice.
My hope is that you find therapy a process through which you see yourself building a new or revised story of your life. Narrative and Solution Focused Therapy are my therapeutic approaches and they allow me to work collaboratively with clients to use their already existing skills for change and to help build new understanding of themselves and their lives.
I believe in the power of people's resiliency. In therapy, I work with clients to unearth the parts of their stories that no longer serve them and to reconnect them with their skills and wisdom for getting through hard times while also building new ways to confront life's difficulties we work at a pace that fits for you.
