About

"What people really need is a good listening to." --Mary Lou Casey. In these "chaotic" times more than ever, I see clients who are struggling to deal with added uncertainty on top of the usual difficulties of life! This stress, in the form of disrupted relationships, family and parenting concerns, and financial/job concerns, contributes to more anxiety, anger, depression, substance use. I like to offer clients a safe, productive space in which to feel comfortable to explore and develop some strategies to move in a positive direction. I strive to develop a good "working" relationship, built on mutual regard and respect.
In therapy, I use this "being listened to and being heard" perspective as the framework for my interactions with clients. This is compatible with Person-Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and many others. I always aim to see each client as a unique individual, to help identify what they are wanting to accomplish, and to assist in the best way I can.
Clients often say that it is nice to have an objective, listening ear. Over time and with experience, I have gained many skills for my toolbox. More beneficial, I feel, is my "way of being", showing caring and compassion. The synergy of these parts offers clients a safe place to explore and grow, which can lead to more satisfying and productive outcomes.
