After 25+ years of providing counseling I find my philosophy has grown simpler and more to the point. Successful counseling is built on a positive and trusting relationship, much as successful living is dependent on trusting, healthy relationships. I bring a broad array of treatment tools to my work including gestalt, object relations and psychodynamic theory. Most importantly I bring myself; my heart, my humor, my understanding, knowledge and years of experience. I work with adults and children, couples and groups(this includes families).

A healthy life is full of transformation, change and growth. Sometimes the normal "growing pains" are accompanied by isolation, depression, anxiety and real loss. I welcome people who have the courage to seek another view point, to break the isolation and find the hidden beauty of transformation, amidst the chaos.

I believe in the strength and resilience of people. Facing the parts of us that are scared, in pain, angry or that we are ashamed of is hard work and it is rewarding work. We have the opportunity to ​increase self-awareness, understand and accept patterns, and learn new skills and ways of engaging in the world. I prioritize building a genuine, empathetic, safe relationship. I want you to experience me as an authentic person in the room. I find this is the essential key to progress. As a therapist, I ground my work in Internal Family Systems Theory and Person-Centered Theory.

In my work as a counselor, I assist clients in healing and growth by fostering openness and self-empowerment. I help my clients understand their experiences by taking their past into account, as well as their current environment. Childhood relationships with primary caregivers, past trauma, existential or spiritual concerns, current environmental stressors, and unmet needs are integral to mental health challenges in all of us. By achieving insight and affirmation about our place in the world and relationship to it, we can reclaim vitality and a sense of purpose in living, using that as a guiding light in the life journey to come.
