Deciding to take those initial first steps toward seeking help through psychotherapy can be challenging. Some initial concerns may include, "How will I know if the therapist is competent?" "What if they judge me?" "Will I feel comfortable telling them what I am really feeling and thinking?" These concerns are extremely common in trying to find the right therapist for you. The key phrase is "the right therapist for YOU..." Everyone is different with different needs. I encourage you to read about my experience and the services I provide in to see if I may be the right therapist for you.

For thirty years I've watched people in therapy surprise themselves with how they can make things better. Life challenges you with situations and feelings that seem insurmountable. Your usual ways of responding aren't working any longer. Sometimes you know exactly what would make you happier, but, for some reason, you don't do it. Together we will determine what needs to happen in order you to live more fully. I provide a safe space in which to explore this with warmth and humor.

People tell me they are initially drawn to my warmth, authenticity, and positive nature, but what keeps them coming back are the results they attain. One of my abilities is to see peoples "best self", their potential, and to mirror it back to them in a way that supports them to take action. My goal is to create an inviting and non-judgemental environment in which to explore and actively pursue your emotional, personal, and professional growth. Providing a balance between support and challenge, we work collaboratively to identify patterns that are no longer useful and to develop strategies for change.

Simply put, my practice centers on helping individuals, couples, and families solve problems. My approach in therapy is to ally with motivations for change. I find that symptoms such as depression, anxiety, conflict in relationships, and other problems often relate to significant life transitions and events. Clients utilize therapy to further self-awarenes and my role is largely to assist in their process. This, at times, involves the acceptance of difficult and painful emotions about past experiences; however, the emphasis of any process is relief and freedom from patterns which have often become more painful than the emotions underlying them.
