Sometimes it helps just to have a caring nonjudgmental person to talk to and bounce ideas off. Sometimes, people need a gentle push along with clear steps to take to make things better. After over 35 years working with clients from children to adult, public and private settings, I have learned what differences to respect and what common themes and needs to honor for all human beings. Throughout my career as a counselor/psychotherapist, my strength continues to be my ability to understand human nature. I share with my clients knowledge, respect, and guidance. It is a two way learning process.
I lean toward a cognitive-behavioral approach, always keeping in mind that individuals are part of larger systems of relationships. I see many couples & enjoy helping them work through their differences to build connection. But I also appreciate when one needs to move beyond a relationship, whether due to break-up or other type loss.
Much of my work and interest has focused on moving beyond trauma and loss, which we all experience, whether large or small; codependency, women's and relationship issues, and cross-cultural understanding. I use a combination of structured and personalized approaches; and pull from both research and personal experience.
