Eirene simply means peace and reconciliation within yourself and with other people. How is your relationship with yourself? What about with other people? When those relationships are unbalanced it can look like repeating the same dysfunctional patterns no matter how hard you try. It can feel like you are stuck, unmotivated, frustrated and don't have the energy to make the changes you desire or not being sure of what changes you need to make to live a fuller, more complete life. You may also feel overwhelmed, anxiety filled, doubt in yourself and your abilities, anger/irritation, and setting impossible goals for yourself.

How do you find the right therapist for you? As a practicing psychotherapist, I am committed to working with individuals that are interested in making a change in their lives. The decision to seek counseling is often a difficult decision to make. However, it is my belief that once you have made that first step in wanting and pursuing counseling, you have already moved in the direction of your own healing.

I am a strengths-based psychotherapist, a mother of three wonderful adult children, who returned to graduate school late in life with a strong belief in the "land of possibility." I have great respect for what each individual brings to therapy and faith in the power of relationship to effect growth and change. I believe that my sensitivity to need, whether in very young children or mature adults is a unique gift that brings hope to life. I recently completed a mindfulness and psychotherapy course and strongly believe in its impact on depression and anxiety.

I try to make the therapy process enjoyable with humor and affirmation. My approach is collaborative as I view therapy as a form of partnership. I have worked with both adults and children with a wide range of issues including, autism, anxiety, depression, trauma, anger management, ODD, ADHD, emotional regulation, grief, life transitions, and self esteem issues. I believe that people are more then their diagnosis and that our mistakes do not define us, but are opportunities for growth.

Teletherapy by computer, tablet, and smartphone is available for individual, couple, and group treatment sessions. With COVID-19, Shelter-in-Place puts even more stress on relationships and employment. Alcohol, drug use, and porn addiction can make relationships even harder.

My ideal client is one who wants to building a collaborative relationship that will help to foster change. I believe that most of the work of therapy happens in between sessions, so my clients will benefit if they are willing to practice the things that we agree will be helpful. I am less focused on diagnoses than beliefs, feelings, and behaviors that are amenable to change. I am hoping that my clients have decided that they are willing to be vulnerable at this point in their lives and that they are open to having me participate in their journey toward a more effective life strategy.
