Your life is ever changing and switching gears is not always easy. Your new reality require adjustments and sometimes we struggle with making them. Many times, they happen without notice and well before you are ready. You can feel lost, powerless, or stuck. It might feel like you are barely treading water. This last year is a good example of that. It takes courage to change. Changing is scary and responsibility feels overwhelming, but it does not have to be. Many times, you could work through those struggles if you just had someone to talk them out with. Someone who would guide you and help you to adjust as you forge your new path.

How do we manage our anxiety or depression? How do we deal with our relationships? Analyzing the problem outside of the situation can help bring clarity and solutions. Many thoughts, fears, and desires that we think are outside of the norm end up being more common than we realize. My goal as a counselor is to bring logic to emotions. I want people to understand themselves better and to be able to highlight their individual strengths. My counseling style is direct with a combination of humor to not only tackle the problem head on, but to keep things light as you progress towards your goal.

My passion is to work with clients who have become overwhelmed with the pressures of life and need a compassionate and non critical perspective to help them navigate the often difficult terrain of life. While motivation is helpful I am completely comfortable with helping clients explore their own reluctance in facing the painful realities of their life. I am particularly drawn to clients who have experienced trauma, rejection, abandonment, and/or abuse. My considerable life, parenting, and professional experience has truly endeared me to clients who are simply overwhelmed and need gentle guidance to find their way.

One of the first things asked of me when creating this website profile was to describe my ideal client. I don't think I have an ideal client. To me that implies that I can pick and choose my client's problems, symptoms, relationships, and so forth, and it's that same individuality and variety of people and presenting concerns that I value. I wouldn't change that if I could. I meet a lot of people who don't really know what they need or cannot visualize/verbalize their true goals. Discovery can be a part of the therapeutic process.

I believe in order to make a positive change you must be empowered to create the change you desire. Many times I see clients struggle because situations have happened to them and they identify with the hurt that has been caused. In order for growth to occur individuals need to be in charge of their own life’s circumstances. As a therapist my purpose is to guide my clients toward the goals they seek in order to manage their lives effectively.
