When seeking a therapist you want someone who'll be able to recognize who you are and what you're needing. No one wants to waste their time or have the setback of meeting with someone and leaving the office more discouraged than before you came in. You're looking for someone to see you clearly and support you with whatever you're struggling with, wherever you're stuck, however much (or little) pain or confusion you're in - whether you're single, married, struggling as a step-parent, dealing with the loss of someone close, feeling lonely or dissatisfied.

Discovering who we are, where we came from and what has transpired in our lives is vitally important in understanding how we relate to others and the world around us. My approach to counseling utilizes the Family Systems Model and Cognitive-Behavioral techniques.  I believe our past experiences and environments help us to develop how we think and respond to life’s stresses.  This is where CBT can be helpful in changing false thinking and negative responses. As a client understands themselves and their current situation they can change their thinking process and subsequently their behaviors.

In therapy, I work to develop a relationship where you can both specifically explore the issues that have brought you to therapy- depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, lack of purpose, trauma, drug and alcohol issues-- and your life, in general. This atmosphere allows you to gain more self-knowledge and self-acceptance as well as to see fresh perspectives on your troubles and desires. You can then begin to find a way through some necessary changes. An important aspect of my therapy approach is encouraging clients to take steps to live life in more alignment with who they are.

The choice to begin therapy can be scary. However, I believe it is brave. You, like most people, may be looking for greater awareness into your life experiences, deeper intimacy in your relationships, and more meaningful satisfaction in your life. I work with clients to find their strengths and point out how to use those strengths to find solutions. I like to bring humor into the therapy room and believe that one of the most important factors in therapy is the relationship between therapist and clients. I am trained in a range of therapeutic approaches that can be tailored to clients’ needs, but I often lean towards EFT and CBT.

I think counseling is always useful, even when there's nothing "wrong." We get a lot of chances to go, go, go but not a lot to slow down and reflect. Usually it takes some crisis of feeling or relationship to tell us it's time. I see those crises as opportunities, doorways to deeper understanding. And because we're not fixed individuals, they come and go as we change and grow.
