"Your decision to engage in counseling is to be appreciated and honored as it often involves courage, commitment, vulnerability, and a willingness to change. It is important that you feel heard, understood, and accepted for who you are and what you have already experienced. I view my role as giving you the support, safety, caring, and respect you deserve while facilitating you doing that for yourself. I will also provide cognitive, emotional, and behavioral models, "tools" and experiences to enhance your self-awareness, self-expression, and self-care; and help you learn to trust in your basic goodness and wisdom."

"Has anyone ever told you to "stop worrying" or "just be happy?" and you thought, "easier said than done!" Or have you ever struggled with feeling comfortable in your own skin, whether it's due to body image, feeling like you don't quite "fit in," or that somehow everyone else has their life in order but you're feeling left behind? Do these thinking traps keep you from being able to do the things that make your life feel meaningful? I want you to know that you are not alone and that there are ways I can help."

We all, at times, can benefit from walking with a special companion on this journey; someone who is not part of our everyday life, who has skills and experience to bring us insight and comfort. Sometimes our families, friends, or coworkers don't feel like a safe place to turn. My desire is to provide a space for understanding, healing, and hope so that you can begin to experience more fully, who you are and the beauty of your story.

"To me, the most important things I do as a psychologist are to listen to you carefully and attentively; and to respond in such a way that you feel heard and understood on a deep level. Many people come to psychotherapy feeling their problems or symptoms don't make sense, leaving them feeling worried or discouraged. In our meetings, we will discuss your feelings and experiences, so you can learn more about what you do feel, and how your feelings do in fact make sense, given what you've been through in your life."
