As our lives evolve, we inevitably experience periods of loss, frustration and conflict that signal the need for better understanding and change. Are you experiencing a major life change or challenge? Job loss, relationship breakups, divorce, death, disappointment, or other crisis? Is your relationship less than you had hoped? Your angry, sad, anxious or lonely feelings may feel overwhelming, but you do not have to go through this alone. We can work together to help you develop an inner awakening and awareness to a more comfortable relationship with yourself, your life, and others. I can walk the journey with you.

My ideal client is someone motivated and ready for change. I treat adults, and while an insightful, self-aware individual who wants to put the work in to get positive results is great, I can also meet patients where they are. This includes those lacking insight or not exactly sure how to proceed and together we can work to figure it out. I facilitate this change process and can help with your struggles and improve your coping strategies. I welcome the opportunity to work with you and help you learn how you can be your best self.

In a non-judgemental, respectful atmosphere I accompany people along their journey to living richer, more meaningful life. I encourage people to broaden their awareness into their thoughts, feelings, reactions and behaviors to identify strengths and whats working and challenges and how they are getting in the way. Recognizing the the mind-body-spirit connection, understanding healthy and antiquated defenses and increasing capacity for feeling a greater range of emotions at a deeper level is an important focus of the psychotherapy process. Identifying feelings, understanding reactions and learning better, more effective means of communicating with others is integral as well.

I focus on my client's regaining control and strive to help them actualize their goals through a supportive, positive, unconditional helping environment. Our practice is wholistic with many wellness options. I am a trauma informed, integrative counselor that derives a majority of my practice from a cognitive based theory.

I do not push change on clients, but rather helps them articulate how they want their lives to be, and then collaboratively set out to put the foundation in place to create that life. I feel that clients gain the most from the counseling experience when they feel supported, encouraged, and understood by their therapist. This process works best in a warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental space, which I provide.

My approach to therapy is open, supportive, and fosters curiosity instead of judgment. I work to help clients achieve insight about the origins of symptoms, while at the same time providing ways to cope with distressing emotions in the present. Our lives can be full of challenges that leave us feeling sad, overwhelmed, alone, and afraid. Sometimes we are unable to understand why we harbor such feelings. Therapy allows us to sort through our emotions, unhelpful behaviors, and negative self-beliefs so that we can continue on with more clarity, self-assurance, purpose, and happiness.

Are anxiety, anger, alienation, sadness or confusion causing you to feel overwhelmed trapped or hopelessly thwarted in reaching your goals? Or do you feel a deep longing for change? The call to deepen your understanding of yourself, of others and your situation is often signaled by negative thoughts, painful feelings, or a work or relationship crisis. The opportunity to talk with someone who is accepting and takes a practical approach restores hope, rekindles desire, resolves conflict, and directs the flow of energy towards positive movement.
