Some problems in life can be difficult to deal with. It can be hard to make progress. It can be hard to understand why we feel the way we do, or to understand why we do the things we do. We can be stifled by fear, hampered by low self-esteem, or suffer from being too hard on ourselves. It can seem that we have the same kind of problems or painful emotions over and over.

I believe successful therapy relies on the professional therapist's core knowledge and listening skills. Both are needed to pay depth of attention to your perspective with a caring therapeutic ear. I listen well, draw from theory and practical experience to understand what my client is experiencing. I also consider what social pressures or situations impact your thinking/emotional states and what therapeutic approach might be most helpful. I take into account the client's unique human diversity, level of personal development, consciousness and, if applicable, spirituality. Together, we select the most desired and achievable goals as the therapeutic focus of our time together.

I believe that effective psychotherapy enables clients to take control of their own feelings and behavior by gently uncovering the connections between past experiences and current difficulties. Positive change occurs in an atmosphere of responsibility and hope, and a respectful, dedicated therapist can effectively guide this process. I integrate straightforward communication and empathy in the context of steady, clear boundaries. Psychological services for children and adults include psychodynamic therapy, play therapy, and family court related interventions.

I work from a Cognitive Behavioral approach, an REBT approach, and a Rational-Emotive Behavioral Therapeutic approach. I use a Psychodynamic perspective as well. I try to incorporate Motivational Interviewing and client-centered approaches at times. We can not change the past; we can control our thoughts, feelings, and actions if we do not like them, as we are only responsible for our happiness. The problem is not the problem. The reaction to the problem is the problem. Change is slow and takes time to effect change, as change is usually a process rather than a one-time event.

My job is to work myself out of a job. I work with youth, adults, and families through decision making and strengthening life skills, by emphasizing relationships and making laughter a priority.​ I hold a relational lens in my practice, focused on not only your relationship with others, but also on your relationship with yourself. The key to therapeutic services, and relationships in general, is to make sure that there is a level of trust and comfort for the client to build rapport and explore experiences without feeling shame or judgement.
