I work with families, couples, and individuals to help create change, improve communication, strengthen relationships, and develop a strong sense of self-worth. I believe everyone is capable of growth and transformation. My therapeutic style is warm, supportive, and encouraging. I use humor to provide new ways of relating, encourage movement away from defensive reactions, and add a light touch to intense moments. I utilize a blend of Animal Assisted Interventions (AAI) and experiential techniques when working with clients. AAI can enhance our work on self-awareness, communication, relationships, coping skills, and teamwork.
