Most of us are trying to avoid our pain, in spite of the fact that it is an inevitable and crucial part of the human experience. In fact, we are never so fully human as when we surrender to the reality of our wounds. Only when we stay with our pain can we hope to learn what it has to teach us in the hopes of ultimately transforming it into something meaningful and life-giving that may just propel us into the life we've always wanted. But it is hard learning how to integrate our wounds. I will help you.

In therapy, I work to develop a relationship where you can both specifically explore the issues that have brought you to therapy- depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, lack of purpose, trauma, drug and alcohol issues-- and your life, in general. This atmosphere allows you to gain more self-knowledge and self-acceptance as well as to see fresh perspectives on your troubles and desires. You can then begin to find a way through some necessary changes. An important aspect of my therapy approach is encouraging clients to take steps to live life in more alignment with who they are.

The choice to begin therapy can be scary. However, I believe it is brave. You, like most people, may be looking for greater awareness into your life experiences, deeper intimacy in your relationships, and more meaningful satisfaction in your life. I work with clients to find their strengths and point out how to use those strengths to find solutions. I like to bring humor into the therapy room and believe that one of the most important factors in therapy is the relationship between therapist and clients. I am trained in a range of therapeutic approaches that can be tailored to clients’ needs, but I often lean towards EFT and CBT.

I think counseling is always useful, even when there's nothing "wrong." We get a lot of chances to go, go, go but not a lot to slow down and reflect. Usually it takes some crisis of feeling or relationship to tell us it's time. I see those crises as opportunities, doorways to deeper understanding. And because we're not fixed individuals, they come and go as we change and grow.
