About

I specialize in helping individuals and couples of all orientations, face challenges, improve relationships and move through changes. I provide support, tools, increased self awareness, and communication skills, to help you on your path to a positive and fulfilling future. I believe you are doing the best you can with the resources you have available. My job is helping you identify, uncover and utilize more resources, so that you are more effective at creating the life you want to live, and then living it. I am trained in EMDR for treating trauma, am a certified Myers Briggs consultant, and am licensed in CA, OR & WA.
It isn't easy to change, but life is filled with challenge, transition and adjustment. I help my clients walk through changes with a sense of purpose and progress. When people get stuck they need a therapist that can tow them out of the confusion and get them on track. My specialty is honing in on and freeing clients from what constrains them.
If you are feeling off-balance, stuck, or unsure of what is next in your life or relationships, I can help. I invite you to take the first step - call or e-mail me, and let's get started.
