About

I specialize with individuals and couples who desire to heal emotional problems associated with lack of trust, intimacy difficulties, ineffective communication, anger, silence and distance, sexual matters/addictions or infidelity. My services help people deal, heal, and grow through the inevitable seasons of change inherent to our lives. My approach is collaborative with the client, helping you reveal who you are, what you seek, supporting you in critical examination of the challenges you face. Together we create goals, develop strategies, and engage in ongoing interaction that moves you toward meaningful paths of change.
Undertaking counseling is an act of courage, hope and desire for insight. Though approaches, techniques, and experience all play a part in therapy, research has repeatedly shown that the safe and connected relationship between client and therapist is the best indicator of successful therapy. This is central to my approach.
My training and life's experiences are uniquely suited to helping clients with addictions, sexual matters, emotional issues, coping issues, internal conflicts, past trauma/abuse, and major losses or life changes. VISIT MY WEBSITE and schedule a complimentary meeting TO LEARN IF MY APPROACH IS RIGHT FOR YOU.
