Although change is inevitable, it’s not often an easy task. Through my coursework and personal life experiences, I have learned that people do have the power to change. It’s this knowledge that inspired me to be a therapist. I help clients realize the possibility of changing their story by enhancing their lives and relationships in healthy ways. ​ As a post-modern therapist, my approach and techniques stem from Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Collaborative Language Systems. I believe that long-term, lasting change requires a re-organization of the system.

Within themselves, each person has the power and strength to tackle the challenges and difficulties they face. It’s my job, as a clinician, to help them access that power and strength, and I do this by first providing a non-judgmental and positive environment. This allows us to identify the thoughts and perceptions that are influencing their actions, both positive and negative. Real, affirming change can happen when we openly examine the thinking that is holding us back and work to change those thoughts that are no longer servicing our goals. I’m excited to help clients with that self-examination and re-building process.

I believe in the power of collaborative dialogue to help and heal. Through this dialogue, I become a fellow traveler on the journey to claim a healthy and rewarding life. Reaching-out for help can be difficult, but in taking that first step, the client is well on the road to regaining resiliency and practicing wholeness.
