I utilize Motivational Interviewing with a Humanistic/Existential approach as a foundation to my therapy. Which means understanding that a "whole" person is more than the sum of his or her parts. I understand people by examining their interpersonal relationships. That people have many levels of self-awareness, that can be neither ignored nor put into an abstract context. I also believe individuals have free will and are participants rather than observers in their own lives; and that people's lives have purpose, value and meaning. I choose to submerge myself into the world of the person; I am working with.

I use variety of therapeutic modalities, and most often, I utilize Existential, Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioral, and Motivational Interviewing.
“A little bit of counseling never hurt anybody”- Kathryn Olsen, my Grandmother; who was a recovering alcoholic, and therapist herself, said this almost daily, and this was a mantra I was raised with. We all have our own stories, and sometimes, we need assistance and guidance to help us navigate through our stories. I meet people “where they are at”, I honor who we are as individuals-from a holistic, biopsychosocial perspective; biologically: we all have genetics we inherited from our Ancestor’s, psychologically: our mental characteristics and attitudes, socially: the people and groups we all choose to be around.

Immediate openings available - book online. Do you feel disconnected—in your relationships, from yourself, from your life? Are you caught in a loop of constantly giving and second-guessing yourself, but it never feels like enough? Do you feel unseen, unheard and maybe a little bit resentful? Do you wish you could express the feelings there hasn't been space to share before? Keeping up the facade of perfection is exhausting. Something monumental has to change, and you don’t have to tackle it alone.

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you”-Maya Angelou. It can be difficult taking the first step to seek out help when life seems unmanageable. However, it is often more difficult to work through the issues causing this disruption alone. Whether this is due to limited support in your life, or feeling that you have to take care of it yourself, you do not have to work through it alone.

You're someone who is looking to find just the right fit in a counselor. Maybe you are experiencing grief, or having difficulty adjusting to life changes. Perhaps you have a general sense of dissatisfaction with life, or have specific things you want to work through. Or, maybe you're feeling trapped by anxiety, or past trauma, and you want to feel a sense of hope; to be seen, heard, and understood. There is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to therapy, and the things you may want to work on are important and unique.
