About

My aim is to assist clients in being happier, healthier, and stronger as they encounter the hurdles that the different phases of life can bring. Whether those hurdles are internal, interpersonal or professional, most clients walk out of sessions feeling understood, really seen, smarter about themselves and their situation, and with real tools to positively affect their lives. Often interpersonal relationships prove the most challenging over time, triggering defensive/protective reactions that usually make things worse. Working in these arenas can bring valuable awareness, and offer pathways to challenge and change perspectives.
I am familiar with a variety of therapeutic approaches and can be agile when needed to make sure clients feel both supported, and challenged. Often these approaches can lead to identifying lifelong patterns, developing awareness about these patterns, and ultimately experiencing the ability to choose rather than simply react.
I like to work both in the present here-and-now where we can impact behavior. Also, exploring experiences of the past can support making lasting changes and establish new ways of dealing with people and problems. Assisting couples through precarious times is a specialty: addressing communication breakdowns, closeness, animosity, and dealing with affairs.
