My approach to therapy is that of a guide, helping people discover their own inner strength so they can make positive changes. Clients say that my laid back demeanor and calming presence allow a safe, relaxing place to talk openly and work through concerns together. While both direct and supportive, I tailor my approach based on the individual needs of each client. Whether child, teen or adult, I feel it is a privilege to help clients find healing and happiness.

Counseling is a collaborative process in which you should feel supported in navigating life's roadblocks, stressors, and transitions. The counseling relationship is a unique experience that propels individual flourishing by providing a safe and nurturing environment in which you can develop and practice skills to cultivate resiliency and personal growth. I believe in strength-based counseling, in which individual strengths and resources are developed and utilized to facilitate well-being and client collaboration to promote and achieve personal goals. The framework I utilize favors a cognitive approach with behavioral, mindfulness, and psychodynamic interventions to address specific areas of distress.

My practice specialties are: child therapy, and adult therapy, including couples. My child therapy practice is devoted to treating children with a variety of emotional and developmental challenges, is respectful of children, valuing highly the views of parents. It uses techniques from Siegel's Interpersonal Neurobiology such as "name it to tame it" and the four S's that create a secure parent child attachment: feeling safe, seen, soothed, and secure. It also draws from Greenspan's DIR Floortime model, with key goals being to increase calmness, attention, and engagement, strengthen the ability to communicate, and develop higher level thinking.

In C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia there is a scene with a young girl named Lucy where she hears about a heroic lion named Aslan. She learns that he brings much needed hope and peace, but he is also described as strong and fierce. This prompts Lucy to ask if the lion is “safe.” The response to her is, “No… ‘course he isn’t safe. But he is good.” Choosing to start therapy (or return again), is a lot like this exchange. It can be scary to open up your hopes, fears, shame, disappointments, or trauma. But, it is good, and if you choose to take this courageous step I would be honored to walk alongside you in your healing.

Our lives our deeply interconnected. There are moments when structures and roots of inequity serve as a barrier to access to reach one's full potential, purpose, and connection with self and others. As a human, you hold value and power and are keenly aware of the acute and chronic challenges you may face. Perhaps its impact on the ability to properly attach, heal, and thrive individually and in community with others has touched your life. You may be looking for someone to help provide space and tools for you to reclaim your own identity, narrative, and power.

As human beings we learn, develop meaning, and create a sense of purpose through each other and the relationships we form. In the same spirit I believe the therapeutic process is driven by the relationship formed between the client and the therapist. This is why my approach in therapy is guided by the question - "How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for their personal growth?" I strive to create an empathic, nonjudgmental atmosphere where you feel safe and empowered to work toward personal growth and creating lasting change; forming trust and leaning toward vulnerability.

Feeling stuck in a web of stress, frustration, anxiety, hurt, depression, and loneliness can be difficult and unsettling. Like a gas gauge, it is important to identify what empties us and what fuels us. With understanding, knowledge, and humor, I assist my clients in identifying what empties them, such as stresses, worries, roadblocks, and other means of "stuck-ness." We also explore what fuels us and fills us, such as change, self-care, acceptance, balance, empowerment, and new beginnings.
