About

"When the winds of change blow, some people build walls. Others build windmills." ....... Change. It is unavoidable. All people share this truth. Whether we choose it or not, life will change. We live. We adapt. We learn. Yet life teaches us another truth; that we are not alone. We are inherently social, loving beings. Our lives are embedded in many kinds of relationships. Sometimes those relationships are swimming happily along and sometimes not so much. The good news is that these truths about change and relationships enable us to grow. Whatever stage we are in, wherever our world is at, we aim to live with richness and joy.
There are a few things you should know about me. One is that I am a skilled, experienced therapist. I listen deeply, without judgment. It is important I understand the world through your eyes. Another is my belief that the most important component of our counseling relationship is the “fit” between the us. And finally, you are the best judge of our fit.
With these things in place as we get to know each other, we combine our perspectives, experience, knowledge and strengths. Together we learn to manage the stress of change, identify the change you want and start a path for how to get there. If this makes sense to you, take the first step and call me. We can make a lot of good happen.
