During those years I have had experience working with children, adolescents and families through individual adjustments, family changes and resolution of issues that are making you feel "stuck.
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 am a Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years of experience working with couples, individuals and families. My work has evolved naturally over the years, and it is my responsibility as a therapist to model this innate human ability to evolve with others as a part of the therapeutic relationship. By bringing heart, acceptance and flexibility to one's life, we are better able to transform. Whether as individuals, or as one in relationship to another, it is incumbent upon us to be open to change throughout our lives. Sharing one's story can begin the process of that transformation toward a sense of wellbeing.

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.

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.
