"Often when you think you're at the end of something, you're at the beginning of something else," Fred Rogers. My approach is client-centered. My focus as a therapist is to build a safe and trusting environment for my clients to become their true authentic selves. I believe in a perfect effort, not perfection. My therapeutic counseling sessions will give you the extra strength to push through questions, concerns, and frustrations that have held you back in life. I do not believe one therapeutic approach works for everyone. I tailor the treatment to the individual client and their specific needs.

People are unique, and I help them make changes by entering into a relationship that honors who they are. This relationship fosters a safe place to heal old wounds, explore the vast realm of possibility, and reach a more peaceful state of mind, body, and spirit. To enhance our work together, I am experienced in many ways to communicate and integrate information. This may include traditional talk therapy, Parent Child Interaction Therapy, play and art therapy techniques, and EMDR as a tool to enhance insight into oneself and a person's role in relationships and their environment.

But I have learned that nonjudgmental acceptance is preferable.

These things can affect all aspects of your life and lead to a lot of pain, but things can be better. Trust me, I understand how hard it can be. I’ve experienced depression and anxiety off-and-on for much of my life, and I work in a high stress career, so stress is the norm. I struggled with managing stress and emotions for a long time, I still do at times, but I’ve learned many ways of managing my emotions and ways to cope with life.

I believe therapy is a process that is best facilitated by taking a person centered approach and creating a safe space to begin the process of healing. By meeting the person where they are at in life, they learn to understand the path that has led them to seek growth and to work to acquire the skills needed to be successful and strong.
