Connection is the basis of healing. My style in therapy focuses on creating a non-judgmental and genuine environment by implementing support and encouragement throughout the therapeutic process. Through this, trust begins to be built and the work can begin. I want to help you in developing a compassionate view and more secure sense of self. I am experienced with working with individuals who are experiencing mental health challenges and trauma. I work with individuals from adolescence to adulthood.

Therapy is a process of personal growth and empowerment. Ultimately, therapy requires an individual to commit to making meaningful changes in their behavior and ways of thinking, both of which impact the way we feel. The work that goes into therapy requires great dedication-on the part of both the client and the therapist. It is the professional relationship that develops between them that forms the foundation of the change process. My goal as a therapist is to ensure that every client with whom I work feels heard, comfortable speaking with me, and has a sense of direction and renewed hope by the time the session is over.

I believe therapy is a way to enrich life in general, to enhance the enjoyable, and to understand and move through the painful. I think life is better in supportive company and that is why I am a therapist. I am fascinated with the multilayer complexity of life; in integrating the mind, body, heart, and spirit, as well as the richness of community, relationships, and culture. I enjoy building connections with clients and jointly exploring what brought them to therapy, how their history informs their present situation, and how needs are communicated. In essence, I’m thoughtful about how life is experienced, assimilated, digested and observed. I also value the encounter created in the present moment when two people are invested in making changes towards health.

If you are having relationship problems or marital concerns, you will want a therapist who specializes in those issues. My expertise is marriage and I have helped thousands of couples heal from past hurts, get out of the "living as roommates" rut and improve their relationships. Both individuals and couples come to see me with their relationship issues, whether they are with each other, their children, parents, in-laws, step-family, careers, their future or their relationship with God. I've got a warm office, a listening ear and great ideas. Check out my hundreds of blogs at www.thrivingcouples.com.

"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.

It is important to accept a person exactly where they are, in a safe and non-judgmental space where we can explore their issues, find and nurture hope, and together work toward growth and equanimity. As a counselor, my job is to hear, accept and understand my client as a whole person and provide strategies to achieve their goals. Growth, healing and change can be challenging and may take hard work on the part of the client and the counselor. I am honored to be a part of that process with my clients.

It is my belief that the greatest changes a person can make in life are done through the relationship between the therapist and the client. Joining with the clients I work with on their journey is truly a rewarding experience. It is my goal to help individuals understand and overcome the unique barriers in life through empathy, acceptance and unconditional positive regard. I believe that true change can come by using the individual's strengths and positive attributes along with humor to assist clients in achieving their unique goals.

Stress comes in many forms in our daily lives. When we get bogged down with memories from our past, or worries about our future, we become unable to fully participate in the present. My goal is to empower you to live as your most authentic self by creating a collaborative therapeutic atmosphere where you are the expert on your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I utilize a cognitive-behavioral, strength-based, and solution-focused approach to help you explore and identify what's working, what you would like to change, and potential strategies to achieve your goals.
