Choosing a therapist is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. So here are two thoughts on what to consider when selecting one: 1 • Do a little research: Set up a time to talk with at least two therapists. You may get a good feeling from the first one, but it’s always helpful to get another point of view. But in the end, go with your gut! 2 • The fee and time limit on the initial call: I DO NOT charge a fee nor is there a time limit for the call. It’s determined by you getting the information you need, sharing some of your story, discussing the fee; and if you feel comfortable, setting up an session. Good luck!

Are you looking for a more straightforward approach to your struggles? I receive feedback from many of my clients about how I'm different than other therapists. I take this to mean that I have been able to establish real, honest relationships with my clients. I treat my clients with respect, fairness, and an opportunity to be their true selves.

Active Imagination and non-directive guided imagery can help you access inner wisdom and gain insight. While the thinking, rational mind is essential for everyday concerns and problem-solving, its usefulness is limited regarding questions of meaning, value, and depth. Active Imagination constructively channels the psyche's innate creative power. When we tap into the wellspring of the visionary imagination, we feel an enlivened sense of meaning, purpose, and connection.

Too often in our everyday lives we use language such as "that's good enough" or "I guess that'll do." Commonly, these phrases are reflective of a pattern of settling for just getting by. I believe we can achieve more than just the "good enough" in our careers, our passions, our relationships, and our lives. It's time to stop going through the motions and selling yourself short. You don't have to settle for fine.

Over the years working in a variety of settings with many types of people I have found my niche is working with people who have lasting effects from childhood trauma, addictions and compulsive behaviors, and difficulties in relationships. Clients tell me that my ability to stay consistent, calm, and grounded helps them slow down so they can connect to their body - feel their emotions - and experience themselves more whole and alive. Since 2004 I have worked with people with problematic sexual behavior and their loved ones as a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT) using trauma therapies and Pat Carnes Task Centered Approach.

Change can feel overwhelming! A difficult or abusive childhood leaves scars that can have an impact at any time, especially when you're going through major changes or transitions. Old coping mechanisms don't always work as well as they used to and we struggle with life, relationships, and career. We feel anxious, stressed, and unable to cope alone. I can help you change old patterns that frustrate you and no longer work for you.

OCD is a debilitating condition that consists of irrational or excessive fears and concerns that become obsessive and manifest as intrusive, unwanted, disturbing thoughts, images or impulses. These obsessions are accompanied by repetitive and time-consuming mental and behavioral acts called rituals or compulsions that are done to prevent bad things associated with the obsessions from happening. Avoidance is the third component of OCD, which involves deliberately staying away from things, people and places that trigger or worsen obsessive fears and concerns, or to avoid the risk of some dreaded event.
