With nearly forty years of experience as a counselor, I've helped clients with a wide range of issues: family of origin/childhood experience issues, grief and loss, life transitions, communication skills, relationship concerns. Whether working with a couple or with an individual navigating relationship difficulties, I have addressed everything from relationship dissatisfaction/boredom, affairs, communication difficulties, sexual/intimacy issues, etc. I was a civilian counselor on military bases for several years, so I have a clear understanding of the unique pressures and challenges facing service members and families.

Wholeness leads to healing. I guide my clients to accept all parts of themselves and find balance in their lives. I entered the field of counseling with a passion for treating trauma (big T and little t trauma). Along the way I gathered some exceptional tools for doing so, including EMDR and a somatic approach to psychotherapy. Not so far removed from trauma, I have also developed a specialty in treating addiction of all kinds. I have seen the power of emotional healing to transform people's lives in ways they always wanted but didn't know how. I am here to help whenever the client is ready to do that brave and powerful work.

I believe that every person embodies their own answers and inner wisdom but can often encounter obstacles that make it difficult to access their full capabilities and strengths. I enjoy providing guidance and exploration of the parts of oneself that have been suppressed or avoided as a mechanism of survival. I use a direct and person-centered approach to help to transform patterns that are often instinctual and comfortable, but ultimately unhealthy. I meet clients wherever they are emotionally and incorporate an approach in which I provide a safe space for clients to become empowered at their own pace.

There are a lot of new pressures in your world right now. Things are changing quickly and there's a lot of uncertainty. "What if I crumble under all of these pressures?" You appear calm on the outside but on the inside you're wondering if you're really cut out for this. Anxiety about all of the uncertainty and your ability to manage it is real. It makes it difficult to think clearly and perform effectively, let alone be present in your day to day life. What can you control during these times of sudden change? You're ready for a mindset change - to go from reacting to taking charge of your life in this new environment.

I believe many of our common difficulties stem from experiences of disconnection - with ourselves, others, and the natural world - and that what most of us are seeking is a path toward belonging, joy, a sense of calm, and meaning. These gifts of life grow when we connect deeply, inward & outward, and immerse ourselves in the world around us.

Sometimes we get so caught up in our stories, we forget that we can change. Yet we are so resilient! I love helping people befriend themselves and celebrate all of who they are.

Peer Relationships in 28801

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in 28801

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in 28801

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.
