My therapy styles include a mix of cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapy, as well as motivational interviewing.
How do you feel about change? Or lack of control? It is not easy with adapting to change, and as the world is changing, it may feel like we don't have a grasp of our lives. Maybe the pandemic is not a concern, and you are discovering more about yourself and don't know what to do. I've been there and I want to be there for you. Sometimes, all we need is a person to hear us without judgment, and provide us with insight and the truth to our concerns. I am happy to provide that with you.

I use integrative counseling techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and evidence-based mindfulness approaches, which can lead you to acceptance and commitment toward a more peaceful way of life.
Your life’s journey does not always follow straight lines. Negative feelings and experiences can cause your life-lines to become crooked, jagged, or broken, and may leave you feeling as if you’ve reached a dead end. Turning around may not be so simple. Going forward may not be so direct. Perhaps you may need to find a whole new line to walk. At this point it is good to pause to explore all your options.

Life tends to bring about a set of challenges that can be difficult to manage without the right tools. Identifying the right people just to share your story with and get wise counsel can be even more challenging. Are you depressed, anxious, confused about your purpose and goals for your life or just flat out need someone to talk to...I’m here. I believe that everyone is born with the innate ability to thrive and persevere regardless of what the circumstances say.

Maybe something is going on with your child that is more than "just a phase." Is parenting with your partner often stressful?

The process of counseling allows us to gain clarity about ourselves and our situation. It can be profoundly therapeutic to speak to someone who knows how to listen. The gains and insights achieved can be thrilling, but the process itself is hard work. I have been a Clinical Social Worker for 40 years in many settings.
