The most important factor in a therapy relationship is the relationship itself. It is my task to be available, open and supportive as the person seeks to put into words what he/she is experiencing and to work through the negative effects or life experiences, as well as lifting to the fore each person's gifts, strengths and unique perspectives. It is imperative, therefore, that we establish a relationship of trust primarily by noting how past experience may have helped or hindered one's natural self-expression and ability to actualize one's true self.

Has your child's school told you they need to be tested? Have you been rejected for a job and need to be re-tested to demonstrate you actually do qualify? Has your therapy hit a dead end and your therapist needs diagnostic clarity to take you to the next level? My practice was designed to address each of these concerns and more. Testing and evaluation opens up doors to school services, better job opportunities, and in some cases, can help the courts better understand your side of situations. Together, we can use your testing results to help you navigate these systems even more effectively.

I believe that the foundation of therapy is the collaborative relationship between client and therapist exploring possibilities and solutions to transcend suffering, face reality and remove barriers to wellbeing. Mark Twain was quoted as saying “Life is one damn thing after the next”. Many times it is the perspective we take on life’s experiences and our focus of attention that determine our emotional and physical wellbeing. I believe that it is my job to help you identify and yes, remember the strengths and resources you have accumulated throughout a lifetime of experience that can have a profoundly positive effect on your life.

My goal is to allow space for the unfolding of a therapeutic relationship grounded in appreciation, warmth, compassion and acceptance, while encouraging insight and self-realization. Through an inward movement, the spirit and psyche naturally flow towards wholeness and higher consciousness. This natural process can seemingly be disrupted by searching for fulfillment in external sources, such as other people, status, substances, and money. Turning our awareness inward can be the most important move we make. Distress and suffering are common experiences in life and can be the portals for growth and awakened consciousness.
