Life is difficult for all of us at times, and it can be normal to become stuck in survival mode following traumatic events or severe life stressors. My heartfelt passion is to facilitate the gap between these temporary survival modes of reaction and a lifestyle that has you or your loved one feeling safe and living in a way that feels unshakably true to yourself and your ideals.

Change is an inevitable part of life. Transitions are as natural as night and day. In nature we observe times when things move slowly without visable change - and then suddenly acceleration occurs followed by a transformation. I am a therapist/professional counselor who works with individuals ranging from childhood through late adulthood, couples, and families to assist them in finding personal growth, and work confidently through the natural transitions life brings. I recognize each client as unique and direct my counseling to the whole person; which attends to the body, mind, and spirit of each.

Life is beautiful even through all its struggles and disappointments. I believe the connections we make with others give us purpose and drive to fulfill our dreams. Though sometimes our intentions do not manifest and we become stagnant and distressed. In my therapy I like to focus on what we can control...ourselves. To take a look inward and view our most delicate fears, insecurities, and desires can be a lot of hard work. I approach each client with this recognition and strive to make a true connection to help foster self-improvement and life satisfaction.

Each client comes to therapy for different reasons. Your unique challenges, background, strengths, and life experiences will guide me as we collaborate on treatment goals and explore how to reach them. My first task is to practice active listening and nonjudgmental curiosity as we get to know one another. I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is what can provide the space for healing, growth, and improved mental health. Therapists are human, too, and we are constantly learning as we go. This is why I see clients as creative partners, not patients. We are in this unique process together.

I believe that each of us are not only wired for struggle, but, even more importantly, we are also wired to overcome those struggles. The active support, care, and skills available through a counseling relationship can be the most effective tools we use to battle against life's adversities. I value the courage and vulnerability it takes to enter into a counseling relationship. As someone who has experienced 'bad' counseling, I place high value on the individuality of each client and view them as the expert of their experience. I can help you explore new perspectives, offer new skills, and challenge you towards your goals.

Mental health is part of your physical health. You cannot have one without the other. No one is exempt from facing mental health struggles at one time or another in their life. It is not uncommon during times of mental health struggles, either it be an isolated incident of panic, short-term and long-term anxiety, tragedy, situational depression, or circumstances that were out of your control that caused you to have a "new normal." Therapy will alleviate these stressors through a process of personal insight, change, and opening your eyes to a new way of seeing your life and how you react to it.

My overall philosophy is to assist clients in bringing balance to their lives by examining the emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of their lives. It is important to see the individual as a part of a system, as what may work for one person may not work for another due to current family dynamics and unresolved issues from their past.

In my experience, a person who seeks therapy wants solutions that work. The fact that you are considering therapy is proof that you have more strength, and solutions, than you may be aware of today. Therapy is not about eliminating the inevitable problems in life but, rather, learning how to cope effectively and grow when they occur. Therapy is essentially a college course where you're the only subject. An effective therapeutic alliance can help people build the life that they want and deserve. My style is direct and active. I rely on honesty to guide our work together.
