Counseling can be a responsive process, providing support and facilitating insight as the client explores and moves through past and present challenges. It can also be a preventive process, allowing clients to clarify and build on internal strengths that promote wellness and resiliency. My treatment approach is both cognitive-behavioral (focused on the connections between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors) and psychoeducational (promoting the building of social and emotional skills). From a foundation of self-awareness, we can help you to expand your coping strategies and improve your relationships.

When we feel stuck or paralyzed in life, aware of who we desire to be but unsure of how to get there, therapeutic counseling can be a dynamic avenue of clarity and empowerment. I offer a holistic practice, in which I work to find a balance between a client centered approach and personally guiding the individual toward becoming the person they would like to be. I specialize in addiction and trauma. In my work with children and adolescents, I use a systemic approach including the entire family in the healing process. This work requires commitment and motivation to change current patterns of thought, emotion, and behavior.

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!

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.

I would like to help move you forward in whatever capacity you find most appropriate, or rather, to help you find your path when things feel a little lost.
