About

I'm naturally interested in how people experience their lives and how they achieve self fulfilment and secure happy family and personal relationships. What I do is help people realize their goals by finding out what they want and need out of life, and then work with them to solve the parts of their lives that cause them frustration or pain. My approach helps individuals and couples problem solve and identify what is blocking them from creating a great relationship or what is stopping them from moving on with their lives after a crisis, loss or divorce.
I see myself as a collaborative partner who provides personalized treatment during times of grief, indecision or a challenged relationship. My belief is that each of us is capable of changing, growing and rising above emotional pain. I help my clients experience relief by facing what is uncomfortable with compassion, creativity and constructive support.
Like many therapists, I use different therapeutic modes, but they all share in common a solid foundation of respect for my client. What I am most proud of is that I provide a safe place to facilitate healing and change and that my clients and I work together to decide what counseling approach works best.
