My style is open and active in an attempt to meet my client's needs. I believe that successful therapy helps the client find insight into their lives and the competence to improve their functioning. Essentially, I hope that self-awareness leads to healthy changes in various important areas of my client's lives. I also hope to facilitate awareness and use of one's personal strengths - all in a supportive therapeutic atmosphere. Many of my clients seek my assistance with mood problems such as depression, anxiety, and anger. Others look for help in dealing with difficult life transitions.

In my therapy practice, I work with individuals of all ages, including young children, and with families and couples. At our first meeting, you can expect me to listen closely as you tell me about yourself and what brings you to therapy. You might be suffering greatly and be seeking urgently to relieve distress and find hope that things can improve. Or you might feel fine in many ways but want to strengthen your relationships with others, increase understanding of yourself and your behavior, or begin to make better use of your talents and build your creative potential.

You may have experienced significant changes in your life, have endured trauma, and are doing your best to manage both life's demands and what had happened to you. You may find it difficult sometimes as the impact of your changed environments, sense of self, and relationships compete for your emotional attention. You may have been to therapy before, but continue searching for a more profound recognition and connection of your experiences. You may have immediate concerns you are looking to resolve but cannot shake the burden of long-standing issues.

I am a relational, systemic therapist who works with individual adults and couples. I believe most clients seek therapy because their approach to improving their lives is not working. They feel stuck and without direction. I help individuals and couples develop new strategies to improve their relationships, cope with significant pain and loss, and live more fulfilled and satisfying lives. My approach is empathetic, honest, interactive, and direct. I value client insight and recognize the importance of a trusting and open therapeutic relationship to bring about healing.

I believe that autonomy and intrinsic motivation are key elements in creating positive change. The stress of living in a complicated, fast-paced world can make it difficult to find these things within ourselves. Maybe you're feeling stuck, looking to make a change, or just need a supportive environment to help you cope. My goal is to provide a collaborative therapeutic relationship and a non-judgmental, respectful, welcoming space in which my clients can develop insight into their own strengths and values, as well as the challenges that may be inhibiting personal growth.

As a therapist at a variety of school and wilderness therapy settings, I have been working with adolescents and young adults for over 10 years now. I recognize the unique challenges teenagers are faced with today and how to connect with them in a meaningful way. I also realize that starting therapy for the first time can be a daunting experience for anyone. Taking the first step to get help is often the most difficult. That's why it's my priority to make sure new clients are greeted with empathy, they feel heard and as though they're walking into a comfortable, non-judgmental environment.
