Announcement icon I am now using teletherapy-only in my practice for my clients old and new. Ethically and responsibly.
My compassion for all beings began long ago and has been the cornerstone of my personal and professional life. It is truly the only reason I practice counseling. I am profoundly aware of the vast amounts of suffering we all experience throughout our lives, Experiencing and releasing this pain is the goal. I believe in the emergence of self knowledge and positive energy as fear and resistance are diminished. I prefer not to label conditions and symptoms ,but strive to fully understand and appreciate the individual sitting before me.
Personal history,trauma,abuse, familial dysfunction,grief,and loss, life transitions, self acceptance and,intergenerational complexities, are some of the general categories I hear. I believe that behavior is information, as are moods, feelings,emotions and the body's own experience. I welcome all genders, ethnicities,and belief systems.
Being fully present, and caring, are my greatest strengths.
