I work with adults encouraging them to become aware of and bring compassion to all of themselves, their competent adult selves as well as their wounded internal children.
I work with clients to help them develop a sense of agency in their lives. By providing support and safety as well as confrontation, I encourage clients to gain access to their own internal wisdom, to approach challenges with hopefulness instead of hopelessness. It is my belief that problems arise due to adaptations made during childhood that no longer serve the best interests of the individual as an adult. Bringing acceptance to old ways of doing things allows us to explore new approaches more appropriate to the client's current life situation. Helping clients access their own personal spirituality and imagery assists this process.

Childhood and adolescence are, by their very nature, times of growth and change. A broad range of stressors and challenges can get in the way of an individual's ability to successfully negotiate their personal pathway. It is my professional goal and personal commitment to assist children and adolescents (and their families) in identifying barriers to learning and successful social emotional functioning; and to provide effective interventions to help them overcome those barriers.
