Most people begin therapy because they feel they don’t know what to do, or they may even feel helpless. So first, I want you to know that reaching out was the best first step. As we work together, I look forward to learning more about you and what's bothering your everyday life. It is my goal to support, guide, explore and empower you to make your life stressors less overwhelming as we work through your therapeutic goals together.

Clients come to me and receive compassionate care without negative judgment as a means to make meaning of the events of their lives. That new understanding, gained in a supportive coaching relationship with the therapist, becomes the foundation for positive change. Open and self-aware clients tend to want validation of their thoughts and challenges to what hasn't worked. Skeptical clients tend to desire safety and assurance that someone is on their side. Regardless of the category, clients tend to get what they need from one session to the next.

If you're not living the life you love, lets talk about it. I work with highly ambitious, driven people whose lives seem to be going well on the outside – but privately, they're in pain. My clients may also experience lack of focus and procrastination. The cause may be evident or waiting to be discovered. Either way, something needs to be addressed in order to fully blossom, and my clients are willing to do the work to address it.

Therapy has the capacity to help us grow and change in ways we didn't know we were capable of. I believe that this change occurs in the trust and safety that is established in the therapeutic relationship. In my practice, I work to provide a space that is welcoming and non-judgmental as I allow people to share their experiences and losses, feel listened to and cared for. I believe that the creative process can provide a source of non-verbal expression and insight that can help guide you on this journey of self-discovery when desired.

Only then can we begin to focus on what they want to accomplish: setting realistic goals for both personal and professional success. I believe that this is done best with a sense of humor, as laughter is the best medicine! I show my clients that therapy can be as fun and as productive as they want it to be, where your thoughts and feelings are taken very seriously, and where what you put in is what you get out!
