People often see a therapist to process situations or relationships. Counseling may be helpful to bring your situation into focus and help you get on the path that is right for you. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused therapy to assist in understanding your goals and working to recognize how the challenges you have experienced affect you. Developing the skills needed to realize ways to choose a life path is needed to reaching your goals.

I believe that every person has intrinsic value and thus should be treated with great respect and positive regard. My overall approach is based on this premise and this attitude is maintained throughout therapy. My approach is direct, open, and relational. I do not hesitate to offer concrete direction once trust has been earned. I consider the "whole" person in developing a treatment plan, which to me includes their personal and family history, physical and emotional health, and current relationship support. I believe that the best therapy leads the client (both individuals and couples) towards increased well being.

Wanting to make beneficial changes, but no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to change unhealthy thoughts, feelings, or behaviors. Know that this isn’t your fault—just your mind processing information in a way that does not benefit you. If you are struggling in a relationship, these stuck patterns can also block connection. I can help you move what has been stuck so you can move toward a future full of possibilities. I specialize in addressing trauma and removing blocks that can keep clients stuck through an approach that can be quite powerful and rapid, without having to re-experience traumatic events and painful emotions.

An ideal client is someone who is dedicated to putting in the work necessary to facilitate lasting changes in their lives. Clients embark on a therapeutic journey that leads them to a deeper, richer, more secure and more grounded relationship with themselves. Once clients are able to attain feelings of authenticity and peacefulness within themselves, they are in a far better position to enrich and enhance the lives of people around them. I partner with my clients, no matter where they are when they start this journey, and I am at their side every step of the way.

Many of us struggle with conflicting thoughts and emotions. Facing challenging decisions, navigating intimate relationships and family, and carrying too many responsibilities can be overwhelming and often too difficult to work though alone. Unresolved issues and traumas can lead to feeling "stuck" rather than taking steps towards finding solutions and healing. Many people resort to "quick fixes" when feeling lonely, anxious, or depressed, instead of addressing the root cause of the pain and discomfort. My experiences and training allow me to help you find tools within yourself to discover new perspectives and cultivate new skills.

Relationships, careers, and retirement dreams cannot thrive when you are hurting. I work with adults, both individuals and couples, to treat grief, anxiety, depression and difficult life transitions (retirement, divorce, relocation, illness, end-of-life issues), as well as communication and sexual functioning. Some clients are anxious to free themselves from nagging issues of the past, while others struggle to discern the best path for their future. I support couples who want to increase intimacy, and I help couples who have already decided to separate to do so as respectfully as possible.
