As your partner in the therapeutic process, a relational model will frame our work. My theoretical approach to therapy is based on a strengths perspective, competency-based practice. Psychodynamic, client centered therapy goals of treatment include: improving problem solving skills, increasing communication skills, developing a deeper insight and promoting overall functioning. Individuals, couples, group and family therapy is available. As a clinician, I strive to establish a partnership with my clients to encourage and engage. When a secure base is established, the client's increased capacity for trust and learning is the direct result. We will create a healthy change.

Years of conducting court appointed custody evaluations and mediation have given me significant insight into the complications that many families face. My goal is to diminish vulnerabilities and increase protective factors for my clients as they face life transitions. Development is on-going, so our self awareness must be too.

All of the clinicians at Joi Counseling practice in a manner that preserves the dignity of our clients while facilitating growth and understanding. Our primary objective is to promote the mental health of children, adolescents and adults. We appreciate the partnerships with our clients. We look forward to meeting you.
