"I believe that clients have within themselves an amazing ability to self-heal, and the role of the counselor is to find and tap into that ability. I also believe it is important to learn about each client's world and to develop a relationship where clients can feel understood and supported while learning about themselves. This creates the space for exploring the choices they have and any changes they may want to make toward more personal fulfillment. Therapy for children may involve consultation with parents who need support meeting their child's challenges. Play therapy is used with children."

"I maintain a focus on understanding what clients need or seek in a counseling experience, and empowering them to reach their goals. I see therapy as a process of exploration intended toward personal growth and increased well-being. It is an opportunity to examine old ways of relating to oneself, and explore new ways of interacting. At times we will explore areas that may be painful to discuss. I am an AASECT certified sex therapist, certified wholistic health counselor, certified cognitive behavioral therapist, and endorsed domestic violence counselor. Trained in Level I Gottman therapies for couples. See www.wholelifecounseling.org"

"In a relationship with a partner that leaves you despairing or giving up? Trying to raise a child that melts down over what seems like nothing? Feeling that parts of yourself won't let you move on and experience life as you'd like? How we connect with others, ourselves, or even our spiritual resources can be life-giving or exasperating. I specialize in attachment--the way we connect both with those most important to us. I will meet you where you are. I'll work hard to understand what you are going through."

"A major component of my professional identity is staying informed about recent developments in the field so that I may provide my clients with scientifically sound information and evidence-based treatment. My treatment goals are to help clients alter negative repetitive patterns, defuse from overwhelming destructive behaviors, and create movement toward what is really important in their lives. I use acceptance and mindfulness skills, combined with behavior-change strategies, to help clients increase psychological flexibility. I believe that psychological suffering is caused by avoiding emotions and life experiences, which results in psychological rigidity, and greater suffering."
