Your everyday choices reflect the meaning you are attempting to bring to your life. Take a moment to let that sink in...........Big or small, these choice were and are driven by conscious and unconscious hopes, desires, needs, dreams, etc. There are times, however, when you experience trauma, severe life stressors, or times of crisis that negatively impact your ability to make healthy choices that may result in loneliness, confusion, fear, anger, and sadness. Over time these choices produce repeated patterns that impact the quality of your lived experiences.
My therapeutic approach attempts to make known your deeply personal intentions and needs, often unconscious, that influences your behavior and life choices. I will sit with you in your confusion or suffering as we explore, together, the deeper meaning of your choices with empathy, support, compassion while affirming your human dignity and value.
I'm humbled and honored if you choose me to join you on your personal journey of deeper self-awareness and self-fulfillment. I will come into your journey not knowing all the answers but having been blessed with a life filled with diverse experiences, learned wisdom, and longevity that will help you to uncover your answers hidden in your heart and soul.

I often use Humanistic Existentialism Therapy (HE) in my practice. In your first session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. With HE, we'll explore how your choices reflect what is most meaningful in your life. During treatment, we will understand how your choices give you meaning and if different choices can be made.
