I would love the opportunity to work with you and your family.
I view counseling and therapy as a conversation. It is my goal to help my clients identify and define what they value in life. Most negative emotions that we experience in life are due to frustrated efforts at achieving the things we value. Often we stand in the way of our own happiness due to unexamined expectations. I believe progress comes through increased awareness and understanding of one's core beliefs about self, others, and the world. I purpose to serve as a sounding board to this growth in awareness and understanding.

Approximately 50% of my clients have an addiction or are friends/family of an addicted individual. I am able to help you assess the addiction, understand how it is affecting you and your family, and help you develop a plan for recovery. If you are already in recovery, your counseling can further help you understand any underlying issues that may contribute to or drive the compulsions. This may include such things as anxiety, depression, life stressors, trauma, to name a few. I have a positive approach that focuses on strengths and success, building on those assets, more than pathology.

Many of us seek therapy when we are unhappy in our relationships or when we feel lonely. Sometimes, it is the relationship that we have with ourselves that concerns us. Therapy provides an opportunity for us to understand ourselves within the context of a relationship designed for self exploration. Sometimes individual therapy is appropriate. Other times, therapy is more helpful when our partners or other family members join us.
