My approach to therapy is creative and collaborative. I believe each individual – no matter their age or gender identity – is unique and should have a therapist who is genuine, practices unconditional positive regard, and has empathic understanding. In session, I will approach the client where they are and with what they may currently be experiencing. My approach starts with building a positive, warm, and trusting relationship. This will provide a foundation of support, encouragement, and connection, and after that the work can truly begin. I do not expect a client to work harder in our relationship than I am willing to do myself.

People settle, for things in their lives they don’t really like, that they feel powerless to change. I work with both the conscious and unconscious aspects, sometimes indirectly, in ways that engender changes on both of these levels. I enable and empower my clients to open up to new directions and possibilities, to new ways of feeling, doing, and being.
