Life is hard, and none of us escape unscathed. We are all bruised and broken in some way. If we are fortunate, we have friends and family who walk beside us through the difficult times. Even so, we sometimes feel alone and at a loss as to how to move forward. We need further support from a trained professional who will walk beside us; offering support, empathy, insight, and encouragement. This is therapy. Counseling is one the great passions of my life. I have been counseling for almost 20 years and have wide and varied experience. I counsel all ages and use a variety of treatment methods tailored to each individual I see.

“We do not grow by knowing all of the answers, but rather by living with the questions.” - Max De Pree. “Be curious, not judgmental.” -Ted Lasso These two quotes sum up my approach to therapy, and hopefully, to life. Our brains are naturally wired to make sense of things, to organize information into understandable experiences and thoughts. This relentless pursuit of understanding can lead to new discoveries, new technologies, new medicines. However, it can also lead to stress, burnout, anxiety, and depression. Balance between curiosity and living with the questions is necessary to a life of integrity.

Aging can bring a host of new issues such as feelings of isolation after retirement, grief and loss due to deaths of friends and loved ones, and finding new meaning in life after old roles have disappeared. New roles such as being a caregiver for your parents, spouse, partner, adult child, or grandchild can also add stress at this time. Mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, bipolar, addiction, and schizophrenia can continue and sometimes new mental health issues can arise. Health concerns and family dynamics can also make life challenging. Learning how to cope with these challenges and enjoy life is paramount.

Going to therapy is a challenging decision. I get it, vulnerability sucks. However, if you’ve come to the point in your life where you feel like you’re spinning your wheels and can’t quite get on the right track then therapy could be what you need. i strive to take a collaborative and compassionate approach.

"We are all broken.....that's how the light gets in" (Hemmingway). What works for us, works against us. Instead of these parts fighting each other, we need to understand and appreciate both to grow and prosper. Do you find yourself struggling with relationships, work, meaning of life events, grieving, general life stressors, or energy? My approach to psychotherapy includes empowering you to make decisions to help with movement in your journey through life.
