People go to therapy for a multitude of reasons and in response to a multitude of problems, but the primary reason is to feel better~~about situations, about relationships and, of course, about themselves. My job as a therapist is to provide a safe environment in which to explore these problems and help my clients discover and experiment with ways of thinking, feeling and behaving that will help them achieve these goals.

I teach people how to listen to themselves and what to listen for. Every problem, anxiety, or conflict is calling for a fresh perspective-- a way to see it from a new angle. Symptoms are the signals indicating that we need to take the time to notice, listen, and explore what we "hear." We can understand and connect with the unmet needs to which our symptoms are alerting us rather than merely silencing the the messenger symptom without getting the important message we need.

Due to the ever increasing demands placed on us and our time, situations can arise that overwhelm our ability to cope. As we struggle to deal with these challenges, we can begin to feel anxious, sad, and even depressed. I believe that all people have an innate ability to navigate through these difficult times. However, we can become stuck, losing the creativity and humor needed to manage these challenges.

"We all need somebody to lean on." Lean on Me by Bill Withers is a song that articulates one of the best things you can do when life is challenging.

Asking for help can be a vulnerable and scary experience, but the results are often worth it. I am devoted to manifesting growth and stability with all my clients.

I take an active role in the therapeutic process by engaging with the client so he or she feels understood, respected, and seen. The feelings of shame, fear, anxiety and other painful emotions are worked through so the client feels taken care of. The clients I treat often come into therapy in a survival mode.
