About

Clients love my genuine, straightforward approach. I believe therapy should be a safe space to deal with painful feelings and events, provide understanding and clarity, normalize how it makes sense we feel and behave, and offer useful guidance. When we have a chance to be heard and understood it helps us feel normal and valued. The root of most issues, individually and in relationships, is not feeling valued, worthy, or understood. Anxiety, depression, conflict, and disconnection are symptoms of larger, root problems. They result from shame, guilt, and lack of skills. So much is learned. Sometimes what we learn doesn't work.
In the first session, I ask people to share their perspectives and immediately start mapping out the problem. We discuss how it started, why we do the things we do (and say), and then get to work on solutions. I believe people should leave every session with something productive and tangible to work on. This method works well with couples and individuals.
Life experiences shape all of us. Most of what we learn comes from our family of origin. People do their best. But if we didn't get lucky enough to have families that did life well, we struggle. We all deserve to learn and grow and have what we want and need. We deserve to heal. I love working with individuals and couples to help them achieve happiness.
