The alliance we build as client and therapist is a necessary and very important part of the therapeutic process. I carefully assess each individuals or couples strengths, history of relationships, sense of self, developmental status, learning styles, symptoms and readiness to change. I believe that what you find helpful to talk about in each session is most important. You and I will develop a treatment plan based upon these factors, your experience, my professional experience, research findings and what you would like to accomplish in therapy. I have a general practice and also have areas of specialty.

It you're reading this then you're taking the first step to getting help with how you're living your life. I find that most people who seek therapy are struggling with some pain or conflict they cannot overcome with the skills and support currently present in their lives. Talking to a trained professional about your troubles can bring relief and help you to make changes. I work with individuals and couples to help them overcome obstacles in their lives such as unrealized potential, feelings of being overwhelmed or hopeless, relationship troubles, constant stress, and self-destructive behaviors.

Happily, at a young age I found that counseling really helped me grow. It was here I discovered balance, comfort, and courage. Once I learned the skills to manage my emotions, I began to trust in myself once again. I was able to set challenging goals without feeling I would be sidelined by my emotions. These emotional skills learned in my youth have grown with me and have given me tremendous freedom to pursue my passions, take on exhilarating experiences and land exactly where I want to be right now – as a therapist at Bellevue Family Counseling helping youth master their own emotional wellbeing.

Before change can happen, we must accept and forgive ourselves. Choose your present and future by rewriting your past. It's hard work. But it can be the most essential and rewarding work you will ever do in your life.
