Many people, like those I usually work with, feel that, because of experiences in their past, they are not able to live as fully and happily as they wish. They want to be free of the effects of those experiences. Each person sets their own pace, but newer, effective approaches enable most people to reach their therapeutic goals more quickly than they could with older methods. These newer methods require out of session practice and record-keeping, so that we might better understand the events that cause difficulties and develop new ways to respond. The therapist is your guide, mentor, coach, and knowledgeable ally.

Stress and trauma can take many forms. Sometimes we survive an event such as a car accident, wildfire, assault, or military-related event. Or we may notice chronic struggles with trusting others and ourselves, and feeling stressed and unsatisfied in our relationships. The experience of trauma can significantly impact how we change or grow in each present moment, how we connect and separate from others, and how we experiment, take risks, and resource our creativity. Let's co-create a therapy relationship that works to support the development of loving relationships with self and others.

Depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, problems in intimate relationships and stressful life circumstances are among the reasons people seek psychotherapy. I enjoy helping my clients through their difficulties toward renewal, growth and optimism about their future. In an atmosphere of respect and compassion, my clients and I work collaboratively to explore the difficulties they face and uncover deeper issues which impede the natural resolution of their suffering. This process of self-discovery promotes clarity about the steps which are needed to bring about positive change.

Sometimes, the stress of daily life can exhaust our ability to cope. A child struggling in school, family conflicts, traumatic events, major life transitions, the loss of a loved one, friend, or pet, financial and/or medical issues, pregnancy and the birth of a child—all of these experiences can leave us feeling overwhelmed, helpless, and defeated. From experience and research, we know that stressful experiences--sudden or chronic--can lead to feelings of disconnection, sadness, anxiety, low self-esteem, and conflict within ourselves and with our friends and loved ones.

We might be adventurers, exploring the rocky seas of emotion regulation. Perhaps we are princes and princesses trapped in a castle of loneliness, race car drivers going around on the track of ADHD, or warriors battling monsters in the dark.

My work is based on a positive theoretical orientation which assumes that all individuals possess an innate desire for emotional/mental health. A person enters therapy with a strong wish, whether conscious or unconscious, to overcome obstacles and free themselves from constraints that are holding them back. I find that each individual needs a slightly different approach in order to accomplish these goals, so I make adjustments in technique for each specific case. I truly enjoy the experience of guiding my clients through this process and consider it a privilege to play such an important role in a person's life.
