First and foremost, I want to affirm your choice to seek counsel. It takes tremendous courage and strength to overcome obstacles that stand between you and your potential. Most people suffer in silence to the detriment of themselves and their loved ones. Fear of change is natural, but can prevent us from letting go of old beliefs, behaviors and labels that are not beneficial to our well being.
In today’s busy world, it’s not always easy to take care of ourselves or our relationships as well as we would hope. I’d like to affirm your willingness to take this first step towards self care. My hope is that the therapeutic relationship can create a safe, non-judgemental space to honestly explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences. I work with adolescents and adults; as well as couples and families to explore a range of challenges related to anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, addiction and LGBTQ issues. I take a collaborative approach to our work together and encourage you to be a full partner in your healing and growth.
My approach to therapy is to keep the process straightforward so that my clients can experience positive change as quickly as possible. The use of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) and meditative practice provides a solid foundation for clients to achieve personal growth. My goal is to help my clients realize their best self and develop the skills necessary to live a rich, full and meaningful life.
I have worked with hundreds of clients of all ages over the past thirty years, suffering with depression, anxiety, grief, PTSD, eating disorders (obesity and the use of bariatric surgery), relationship issues, and major life disappointments. Choosing an ideal therapist is knowing that person is passionate about your well being and will exhaust every avenue to that end. Together we understand you deeply and to validate your best and minimize unnecessary judgments, resulting in an expanded and more satisfying life.
Everyone experiences challenges and transitions during life. Therapy allows an individual time to process these changes as well as learn alternative ways to address them. The therapeutic relationship is a collaborative approach in which the therapist and client explore and define problem situations and develop future goals. Counseling is instrumental in getting a clearer picture of where you are and helping map your path towards meaning and purpose. The goal of counseling is to empower you to take control over negative influences that have impacted physical and emotional well-being to help you face life's challenges.
It takes courage to ask for help, especially from someone you don't know. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and clinical pastoral counselor, I work with individuals, couples and families to resolve common human problems. I believe you will benefit from my clinical competence, experience and maturity gained from more than thirty years in practice, and will quickly realize I sincerely care about you. When you reach out to me, I will do my best to respond promptly, without your waiting too long for an appointment. Don't be surprised if I personally answer the phone.
Thank you for exploring the possibilities of therapy. It’s a brave first step. Therapy has the ability to impact your quality of life. To find hope, meaning, and purpose. My office is a safe place to begin your journey. There is hope and this can get better.
