About

Clients are welcomed into my space where ever they are in terms of understanding, self-awareness, and emotion--anger, tearfulness, confusion--all are accepted as part of the process. Sessions focus on the 'here and now' while also exploring historical issues being triggered and mis-managed. I confront irrational thinking and help clients re-script their less-than-helpful language around feeling 'not good enough,' 'broken,' or 'lost.' Ultimately, clients can expect to focus on their issues--whatever they may be--and will, in the process, come to feel genuinely known, accepted, and not so alone in the process of their lives.
Post-graduate training came from The Meadows Treatment Center in Arizona resulting in a deeper understanding of 'family of origin' issues and adult relational dysfunctions. Cognitive behavioral techniques and other 'best practices' are utilized depending on the issue being explored; homework and/or readings are also encouraged to augment the work being done in session.
I work with kids and adults, and also offer parenting workshops throughout the year. With parenting and divorce issues, topics of estrangement, reintegration, and blended households/families are all addressed as well as ways to better navigate separate households, non-custodial parent rules, lifestyles, etc.
