About

I have had the pleasure of working in this field for 30 years and have found that no problem is too big, peace is a position of power, and change is another word for refine/revise/adapt. My favorite quote is: "You have to fall in love with your life." Counseling is a way to learn the barriers to doing this, the tools and techniques for doing so, and shifts in beliefs needed to attain the trickle down effect from this. Clients with whom I work often are seeking shifts in their life/spiritual view, focus, behaviors and coping skills.
I have particular success working with transgender people; especially those realizing self-acceptance and early transitions concerns. I work with a wellness approach with depression/anxiety/mood disorders; as well as addressing life transitions, chronic & debilitating illness, relationship struggles, conflict-management and communication to decrease overall life stress.
I will offer a spiritual and/or Christian approach if requested. I like to utilize an individualized style with each of my clients; such as teaching coping skills, identifying barriers to success, using gestalt techniques., dreamwork if requested, identifying old dynamics at play, and understanding concepts of Brain Health.
