Sometimes you need more than compassionate listening. Effective therapy requires a therapist willing to challenge and to offer new ways of thinking, feeling and living. My clinical style is about being active as well as compassionate. Therapy has to work in the everyday, real world in which we actually live. I focus on helping people, not treating diagnoses.

Counseling is a way to help you find inner peace to enhance your sense of control. It can be helpful to have someone's full, unbiased attention to support you in navigating those situations. We will create culturally competent interventions, which will support you with developing self-compassion while still holding yourself accountable so you can live your life with intention. No matter the person—individual, couple, aspiring performer or athlete—I believe these skills are fundamental for achieving your goals. I truly believe in being authentic, in laughter and working together to make therapy a worthwhile and pleasant experience.

Finding the right match in a counselor is a daunting challenge. It can be stressful to find a competent and caring professional who can listen to your concerns and help you find a way forward. In my experience, people have unique needs, backgrounds, and challenges. Even common mental health challenges like anxiety and depression look different for each person. I therefore collaborate with clients to find an individualized counseling approach that works best for each person. I draw from a variety of counseling theories, including person-centered therapy, psychodynamic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and existential therapy.

I offer present- and future-oriented sexuality counseling and educational information tailored to individuals with sexual concerns in a confidential and non-judgmental environment which is designed to empower the client and not the problem. I also provide appropriate external resources while enhancing the internal resources the client already has to deal with their sexual concerns. Because of the centrality of sexual experience, this type of work can be transformational in many aspects of a client's life and not just their sexuality. I work as an equal and collaborative partner and am supportive and empathic.

Being driven helps you achieve, though the pressure created by high expectations gets in the way of your day to day happiness. You want to let go of the need to perform and to perfect, but you are unsure of how to get off the hamster wheel of over-functioning. While you look like you have it together, on the inside you are struggling and have a hard time asking for help.
