About

Over the course of life, people develop coping skills to deal with all kinds of emotional challenges. However, sometimes, individuals encounter situations for which they have no preparation or find the usually adequate coping skills are overwhelmed by the enormity of particular problem/problems. There may be patterns or behaviors that one feels stuck in or fated to repeat over-and-over. (Do you feel "stuck" but you cannot figure out how to release yourself?) In those instances a solution focused, warm, steady, and skillful therapist can assist individuals to understand the root causes of those distressing patterns.
I provide general counseling for adults, adolescents, and couples (anxiety and relationship issues) I specialize in addictions therapy, chronic trauma (PTSD), family therapy, and adolescent issues (self-esteem and talk therapy). My clients tell me that they appreciate my gentle approach and broad life experiences that I bring to each session.
Together we will work to identify and achieve important goals, in part, by building on the strengths one possesses. Treatment is supportive, insight and action oriented. I encourage clients to look with fresh eyes at their familiar emotional experience, and learn the difference between that which is healthy and not.
