With over 30 years of experience working with individuals, families and couples I have developed my own unique approach to therapy. I work hard to meet people where they are in the journey of healing. My belief is that this journey is a lifelong process and there is often a time in our lives when people need to speak to someone who can help them process whatever they are experiencing with no judgement.
My overall approach is to help people become the directors of their life and remove the blocks that prevent them from achieving their goals. These blocks could be narratives they tell themselves, trauma, or simply learned behaviors. I help people find the “whys” to their behavior/ thinking and once that “why” is uncovered, to help find a pathway to healing.
I believe every session I have with a client should be valued added, meaning giving them things to address between our sessions. I also believe that clients own their sessions, meaning they can modify what we are working on if something comes up that needs immediate action.
