"Do you believe there is something terribly wrong with you and you don't understand where it is coming from? Transactional Analysis shows us our personality is formed by age six where the combination of the messages we receive from our parents and how we learned to adapt to those messages form our life script, or pattern of behavior we repeat to get our needs met. The problem occurs when we grow up and the scripted behaviors no longer meet our adult needs, limiting our experiences in life. The script can be changed in order to adjust to our adult needs and desires. I can facilitate this process using Redecision Therapy. "

"My ideal client is one who is willing to form a partnership in which together we can identify needs and goals to achieve and maintain. I believe in working collaboratively, as opposed to unilaterally. My client may not yet know specifically what their needs are at the start, but we will figure it out. Therapy should not last forever, so we will work to discover solutions together. My clients will have a desire to effect change in their lives, including issues associated with mood regulation, inattentiveness, opposition and/or defiance, personality disorders, substance abuse, other concerns identified by the client."

"Life is a funny thing. And often terribly complicated. During our journey in this world, we often face challenges that can feel too big or ongoing. Whether it’s with chronic feelings of anxiousness, depression, emptiness, issues about sexual orientation, gender, or ethnicity, relationship conflict, sleep disturbances, substance misuse, school or work issues, or any combination of those, many of us struggle silently. But you don't have to. It can help to work with a therapist with a deep understanding of what it’s like with some of those struggles and who is passionate about helping others learn to thrive despite these adversities."

"Hope offers light despite the darkness. Deciding to participate in counseling is an important decision and it takes a lot of courage. I commend you for taking the first step. Throughout life, I have learned lessons about the gifts we receive when we take the chance to talk honestly with trusted individuals. It takes a ton of bravery to be vulnerable (at our own pace), but that is how we achieve the safety we are looking for to thrive, and where we build the compassion and sense of belonging we want in relationships. I’ve been a counselor since 1986 and love my job! It’s such an honor to walk with people as they grow and heal. "

"Life without struggle would be pretty boring, but too much can keep people from experiencing the life they want. My entire career has been focused helping adolescents, families, and adults understand patterns that get in the way of joy and connection. We come to believe that those patterns are who we are. But they are not. They are just how our childhoods, traumas, and experiences have shaped us. It's not easy reshaping how we think about ourselves and others. Meaningful therapy is hard. I don't do therapy to teach new skills. I want my clients to heal in ways that reshape how they see themselves and the world. "

We are led to believe that the sign of a healthy life is the absence of struggle, that we are weak if we reach out for help. But, it is rare, if even possible, to find a person who does not struggle, at least a little. If struggle is a part of life, then I believe we must also contain the potential to struggle well.
