Life-Design Counseling is a framework for exploring your personal and career concerns. Through the life-design process we will elicit your current "narrative", the story that describes you to yourself. We will work to disassemble that confining story, creating space for a re-imagined narrative to emerge, with updated realizations and a renewed sense of purpose. In addition to the Life-Design process, we can examine your answers to various career assessments that are useful in addressing the ways in which you are similar to individuals who have already chosen career directions and are happy with their choices.

Psychotherapy can help us to understand ourselves, our histories, patterns and relationships. It is a tool that can increase clarity and direction so that we can move more confidently in the world. We are a complex mixture of our experiences, the relationships most significant to us, what we think about ourselves, the stories we tell ourselves, and how we view our purpose or place. With this in mind, I aim to do a few specific things in my therapist role: To think about how we have come to be *who* we are, to accept this, and to create space within ourselves where we might exercise new or different ways of being.

The journey of therapy should be something you are drawn toward, not something you have to convince yourself to do. I want my clients to look forward to coming to their sessions, especially when what we're working through is tough. Therapy is a serious and powerful undertaking, but it doesn't have to be ominous. I think being down-to-earth and as lighthearted as possible about the institution of therapy helps to make it feel more accessible and fight any stigma attached to it. I look forward to working with you, you and your partner, or your family!

If you’re a teenager or a parent of a teenager, it goes without saying that your relationship with each other is far from perfect. You think, “I can’t trust them,” or “Why don’t they understand my side of this situation?” Maybe you’ve even mustered up the courage to talk with each other about the problem; but what you’d hoped would be a productive, heart-felt conversation resulted only in yelling, tears, or both. You need a space where you can express your thoughts and feelings with support from a caring professional who’s trained to treat mental health disorders as well as the day-to-day challenges faced by teens and families.

Change can be difficult - but with support it becomes possible. You might be struggling with difficult thoughts like "what if my family never accepts my life choices - will they ever accept me?" Perhaps you're battling indecisiveness and fear about whether you're "good enough" to succeed, preventing you from reaching your aspirations and goals? Or maybe you feel confident and successful at times, but at other moments as if your shield for taking on the world is paper-thin?
