ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS!!! My approach to counseling is guided by the values and principles of psychiatric rehabilitation; which in essence, honors and respects the dignity, rights, strengths, uniqueness, and beauty in all individuals. The healing process is rooted in establishing a foundation of trust, hope, and safety. Once the foundation is laid is when the healing can begin.

It's a terrible feeling to be awake at 3 am because your mind is flooded with worries. Your worry may have started as small, but then it lead to another worry... Suddenly, your worries feel overwhelming. You feel shaky and unsettled. It's hard to concentrate on anything but your worry and that restless feeling in your body. You tell yourself, "Just stop worrying about it." You want to let go, but you just can't figure out how. It's hard to not beat yourself up.

I believe that the work of therapy needs to be done in an atmosphere of safety, intelligence, warmth and humor. Therapy is often hard work because it takes so much commitment for us to look at ourselves objectively and work through challenging issues in our lives. Sometimes we come to therapy because there is a specific situation that we need immediate and/or brief assistance with or for an objective voice of reason. Sometimes we come to therapy because there have been challenges over time that have gotten in our way of getting what we want out of our lives.

Therapy helps people to change their lives, most fundamentally through a connection to their therapist. As a therapist, I listen closely during sessions, paying careful attention to how overlapping social oppressions, collective histories and past life experiences emerge in the present. I attend to a patient's need to speak their mind, to be heard and understood. At the same time, I remain alive to what may be unsayable, and why. Throughout the course of therapy, we work to make sense of the dynamics that shape lived experience and to make difficult thoughts and feelings both sayable and survivable.

This exploration is essential, as experiences in your past directly and powerfully contribute to the present. This path of therapy leads you toward a greater capacity to realize your true potential and a greater capacity to engage in and experience joy in your relationships.
