Thank you for visiting my page. It can truly be a difficult and vulnerable task to engage in counseling. And fear not, I will be you every step of the way. I have a very eclectic style which aligns with many clients' needs. Is it a relationship issue, grief and loss or anxiety and depression- these concerns can truly paralyze one's ability to live life holistically and freely. You will find me to be caring, direct and sensitive, and very client centered. I have a strong listening skill, empathy towards one’s pain, and an uplifting spirit that sets me apart from other counselors.

When addiction is present in a family, its effects are not only felt by the addict, they also have a profound impact on the entire family system. By including all family members in the recovery process, I can help the healing begin and offer support for the trauma that everyone has experienced.

If you are world-weary or looking for a creative approach to healing, you are in the right place. As both a licensed mental health counselor and a licensed creative arts therapist, board certified in dance/movement therapy, I will encourage you to attend not just to your words, but to the messages that come from your body (includes your brain). I will introduce you to LivingDance(tm), to show you how to access and work with elements of dance and movement that relate to emotions, feelings of effectiveness, and identity development. You do not need talent or training to work with them.

Counseling starts with meeting you where you are, and from that place, we collaborate together to determine the next best steps. That might involve looking to the past to understand or to heal, moving out of patterns that aren't working in the present, and/or taking a preventive approach to clarify and build on your internal strengths to promote balance, wellness, and resiliency. Therapy is, at its core, a learning process, one that begins with the strengthening of self-awareness, and leads to an understanding of how to best apply the power of your thoughts, insights, emotions, and resources to make the changes you're seeking.

Over thirty years of experience partnering with clients of all ages, from a wide variety of backgrounds, has confirmed for me each person has within themselves the resources and ability to become the person they wish to be and to improve their satisfaction in life. As a therapist I partner with each client helping them to identify patterns of thought and behavior that are no longer effective and guide them in discovering new, more rewarding ways of relating and connecting with others. I work collaboratively with clients to solve problems, connect with strengths, and reach their personal and professional goals.

Have you been feeling bogged down by life? Are past experiences controlling the way you think, feel, and act? Between work, school, relationships, and trying to find yourself, life can feel so stressful and overwhelming. Talking with someone who is open and non-judgmental can be a helpful way of releasing some stress, learning skills to get through these tough times, and better your relationship with yourself and others.
