I believe in the power of therapy to be a catalyst for growth, to gain new perspectives for tackling challenges, and to improve dynamics between individuals and within families. However, it all starts with relationship. I am committed to creating an inviting, safe space for my clients. My sixteen years as a progressive educator provide the roots of my growth-oriented approach and are the foundation on which I work to collaborate with clients when learning new skills, new perspectives or processing painful life events.

My compassion for all beings began long ago and has been the cornerstone of my personal and professional life. It is the compelling reason I practice counseling. I am profoundly aware of the vast amounts of suffering we all experience throughout our lives. Experiencing and releasing this pain is the goal. I believe in the emergence of self knowledge, positive energy and right action as fear and resistance are diminished. I prefer not to label conditions and symptoms ,but strive to fully understand and appreciate the individual sitting before me.

When these difficulties arise, you may need guidance navigating towards healing so that you can experience a healthy, satisfying life.

When we're faced with adversity, we have two choices: to do nothing and hope that things improve on their own or to engage the problem and transform it. My approach to counseling is focused first on listening and then on helping my clients understand themselves and their ultimate concerns in a deeper way so that they can live fuller, happier lives. My practice uses evidence based treatments and is results oriented. Visit the outcomes tab on my website for more information on my clinical outcomes.

Therapy is about possibilities: possibilities for overcoming challenges, possibilities for pursuing hopes and dreams. In my experience, the sooner you can get out from underneath the pain of life's struggles, the sooner you can reconnect with the joy of life's possibilities. I am here to help you do just that, all in an inclusive environment of safety, respect...and sometimes even a bit of humor! If this sounds like a good fit for you, please drop me a line or give me a call.
