Therapy provides a supportive framework to be present with and explore life's ups and downs and examine our life experiences in a new way. This exploration can help you understand yourself better, break old patterns, accept yourself radically, enrich your relationships, and grow. Regardless of your unique process, I believe you have the inherent wisdom and resilience to be present, heal, find joy & ease, and love yourself more. My approach is collaborative, relational, direct, and peppered with humor.

Discovering who we are, where we came from and what has transpired in our lives is vitally important in understanding how we relate to others and the world around us. My approach to counseling utilizes the Family Systems Model and Cognitive-Behavioral techniques.  I believe our past experiences and environments help us to develop how we think and respond to life’s stresses.  This is where CBT can be helpful in changing false thinking and negative responses. As a client understands themselves and their current situation they can change their thinking process and subsequently their behaviors.
