With nearly forty years of experience as a counselor, I've helped clients with a wide range of issues: family of origin/childhood experience issues, grief and loss, life transitions, communication skills, relationship concerns. Whether working with a couple or with an individual navigating relationship difficulties, I have addressed everything from relationship dissatisfaction/boredom, affairs, communication difficulties, sexual/intimacy issues, etc. I was a civilian counselor on military bases for several years, so I have a clear understanding of the unique pressures and challenges facing service members and families.

Wholeness leads to healing. I guide my clients to accept all parts of themselves and find balance in their lives. I entered the field of counseling with a passion for treating trauma (big T and little t trauma). Along the way I gathered some exceptional tools for doing so, including EMDR and a somatic approach to psychotherapy. Not so far removed from trauma, I have also developed a specialty in treating addiction of all kinds. I have seen the power of emotional healing to transform people's lives in ways they always wanted but didn't know how. I am here to help whenever the client is ready to do that brave and powerful work.

I chose to enter the counseling field as a teen after I saw a counselor myself. My experience opened me up to learning to cope with things in a way that I had never learned. I was so changed by this process that I decided I wanted to give others what had been given to me.

Finding the right therapist for you is a primary factor in whether or not your therapy will be successful. I believe in creating a relaxed, non-judgmental atmosphere where people feel safe to explore painful feelings and negative thoughts/behaviors. My approach includes a balance of support and challenge. My goal is to bring warmth, humor, and an interactive style to our sessions. I do not believe in "one size fits all," and therefore, I strive to create an experience that is unique to you based on your individual needs and goals for therapy. My work is grounded in current research/education on mental health and well-being.

Indeed it is a troubled time. Our difficulties as human beings have grown in magnitude and complexity. The growing demands of everyday living and the lack of community-feeling has left many feeling lost, confused, homeless, lonely and afraid. ​Being human is messy business. We are expected to bear the load of so many complex emotions that result from the deaths of those we love, stress, major life changes, marital and interpersonal difficulties, family histories, parenting, keeping up with the pace of life and making a living on top of it all.

There are a lot of new pressures in your world right now. Things are changing quickly and there's a lot of uncertainty. "What if I crumble under all of these pressures?" You appear calm on the outside but on the inside you're wondering if you're really cut out for this. Anxiety about all of the uncertainty and your ability to manage it is real. It makes it difficult to think clearly and perform effectively, let alone be present in your day to day life. What can you control during these times of sudden change? You're ready for a mindset change - to go from reacting to taking charge of your life in this new environment.

Being human means that we all struggle and need support at various times in our lives. You may feel overwhelmed, angry, hopeless or confused. You are likely seeking to feel more balanced and in control. Sharing our experiences with others allows us to understand ourselves more deeply, unburden negative beliefs about ourselves, and access our internal resources in an effort to shift patterns and create meaningful change. I believe strongly in the strength that comes from being vulnerable, and I am committed to offering kindness, compassion, curiosity, and at times, a sense of humor about life, as we enter this partnership together.

A common misconception of counseling is that it is meant to "fix" an individual. More accurately, it is a catalyst for emotional stability, successful relationships, and satisfaction in life. Counseling is meant to build upon one's existing strengths resulting in the ability to manage stress in a healthier way. Often one's innate resiliency is overlooked and problems are approached with the assumption of a deficiency or "illness." A more positive, strength based, approach leads to a more intentional life with a grounded presence.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. 28801 Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
