"At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want" Lao Tzu Power comes from being open to exploring your inner strength as a means of gaining insight and knowledge. I strive to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, compassionate space for self-discovery. Through the Empowerment Model I use an eclectic, client centered, and strength based approach to finding healing and growth in the midst of challenges. By exploring the origin of symptoms and how they influence thoughts and behaviors we can overcome obstacles to feeling genuine health and wellness.

Sometimes we desperately want to change a difficult pattern in our lives but feel powerless to do so because the pattern runs deep - all the way down and through the way we view ourselves and experience the world. I help people understand how these unsatisfying patterns came to be and how they keep us stuck. Then we can see that these habitual ways of being are only one option and that there are other paths that will serve us better.

Either working with an individual, couple or family, I come from the perspective that every person is wired for connection and seeks growth to embody their wisdom and wholeness. Individuals can heal from past experiences, move through difficult transitions, and learn to tolerate the stresses of modern life. When we are disconnected from our natural capacity, we can experience life as intolerable and forget our inherent worth. I believe in a collaborative approach to not only find relief from problems, but also to restore health and a sense of internal wholeness.

You may be a combat veteran, mental health or law enforcement worker having family or relationship problems. You need clear and practical strategies for replacing automatic reactions with mindful responses. Feeling understood by another human being is useful for flexible problem solving and clarifying your values. The majority of my experience is working with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I believe that people have a natural tendency toward growth and that therapy is one of the many ways to have a more meaningful, satisfying life. I will work with you to create the right conditions for your growth and support you in moving toward your goals. While therapy is often sought out because of discomfort, dissatisfaction, and the challenges of life, ideally it can increase your sense of belonging – in your body, mind, emotions, relationships, physical and cultural environments, and livelihood. The attitude I try to cultivate in therapy is one of openness, warmth, curiosity, and acceptance.
