Finding help shouldn't be difficult, but it is, and I want to make that process easy for you, from the first contact. I have more than twenty years experience in behavioral medicine, and more than 30 years in helping professions. Using a wide range of expertise and training I treat diverse concerns of pre-teen through older adult clients. By varying treatment with a number of approaches, I strive to tailor therapy to the person, not just the problems identified. I work with mood and anxiety disorders, chronic pain and illness, trauma, addictions, eating and weight issues, and more.
I believe we are happiest, healthiest, and strongest when we live lives that we choose based on our values, rather than lives that are chosen for us. We experience hope, healing, authenticity and growth when WE direct our lives, not our shame, grief, abuse, trauma, addiction, compulsion, or anything else.
In counseling safety and trust are vital, followed closely in importance by the competence of the therapist. I hope I am the healthiest kind of perfectionist, always learning and searching for the best tools, technology, and resources for change. I never to plan to stop learning and growing!
