There is a Swedish proverb that reads, “shared joy is double joy; shared sorrow is half sorrow”. At some point in our lives, everyone needs someone to create space for them. A space to celebrate our joy. A space for our sorrow to be gently held. I believe therapy can be that place for you. Through counseling you can become a happier, healthier version of yourself with time, effort, and support. Showing up for yourself is perhaps one of the best gifts you can ever give yourself and it can also be intimidating to take that first step. Know that you are not alone.

After a career of more than thirty years I believe therapy can be an adventure enhancing physical, emotional and spiritual well being. In addition to teaching clients how to determine life goals, and take small steps to reach them, I encourage creative expression through journaling, dream interpretation, the study of Myers-Briggs personality types and the Enneagram. A favorite book of mine is, "Women Who Run With the Wolves," by Clarissa Estes'.

Being accepted for who we are is one of our most basic needs as humans. With many pieces adding up to create a whole being, it is hard to find someone who can understand without having to explain every time we see them. Repeated explaining and misunderstanding can lead to a feeling of shame and uncertainty that can damage the therapeutic relationship before it starts. I work from a baseline of understanding to help create a safe space for my clients to learn and grow. Therapy should be a laboratory where you can experiment with how you interact with others and present yourself. You are the expert on you. I'm just here to guide.

No matter how much you talk about it, hardly anything gets heard. And because of it, your relationship now has more grudges, anger, resentment, and distrust than you can tolerate. The wounds are deep and layered upon wounds of relationships past. At times it even feels like you're worlds apart, and the more you try to get the other to understand, the gap just widens. It's exhausting to be on edge with each other, bracing for the next escalation of blame and shame. You're over trying to keep the peace and are instead longing to feel the safety.

My focus is to provide a safe place or healing and discovery. Often our instincts tell us there is something off in our lives or that there is more to life, even if we function well in many areas. A few things that can block our lives can be childhood traumas, , sexual or physical abuse, gender issues, or any life disruptions, losses or challenges.
