The alliance we build as client and therapist is a necessary and very important part of the therapeutic process. I carefully assess each individuals or couples strengths, history of relationships, sense of self, developmental status, learning styles, symptoms and readiness to change. I believe that what you find helpful to talk about in each session is most important. You and I will develop a treatment plan based upon these factors, your experience, my professional experience, research findings and what you would like to accomplish in therapy. I have a general practice and also have areas of specialty.

It you're reading this then you're taking the first step to getting help with how you're living your life. I find that most people who seek therapy are struggling with some pain or conflict they cannot overcome with the skills and support currently present in their lives. Talking to a trained professional about your troubles can bring relief and help you to make changes. I work with individuals and couples to help them overcome obstacles in their lives such as unrealized potential, feelings of being overwhelmed or hopeless, relationship troubles, constant stress, and self-destructive behaviors.

Therapy should be as individualized as the people seeking help. Interventions can range from traditional talk therapy to integration of arts modalities to address complex challenges. I work collaboratively with clients to find the most effective approach for their unique needs and situation. Therapeutic influences come from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, and music therapy. Client challenges can include anxiety, depression, pain management, adjustment to medical illness or disability, relationship problems, communication difficulties, self-expression (including artistic blocks), grief and loss issues.
