About

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Happy 2022! Congratulations on taking better care of you. You are so close to choosing a therapist to support you in your goals. You are worth it and your goals are too! So let's get started! I will hold a safe space for you. Asking for help takes courage. I've been in practice over 30 years, and I am a 'mental health generalist'. I like to say I've seen everything until the next day I go into work, and meet a new client with a concern truly unlike anything I've heard before. I am most effective being challenged to 'think on my feet' and providing an individualized experience for every client.
I make therapy both effective AND fun. Our relationship, if successful, is collaborative, meaning we become a happy working team that helps you win more often at this game called life! By the way, no matter how hard you try, losing in life is inevitable so something I will help you with is becoming more resilient, perhaps life's most important skill.
Using a whole person approach to getting to know you (respecting developmental, genetic, physical, spiritual, humorous, generational, social, environmental, cognitive and emotional elements) I will always work to 'walk beside you' (not behind or in front of you) as you identify the challenges you want to solve. You don't have to go it alone.
