Clear, Resolve, Transform. I help clients discover and resolve subconscious causes for emotionaI and behavioral difficulties. The Subconscious controls emotions, desires, memory, habits, thoughts, dreams, and automatic responses. One may consciously understand the value of eliminating problematic emotions, thoughts or behaviors but unless the Subconscious Mind is reached, enduring change is unlikely. I address the underlying subconscious blocks to living a clear and free life. I have effectively treated sexual abuse, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and more. Issues are cleared, clients report being able to function with more energy and clarity. Relationships thrive and lives are transformed.

Hearing from the heart and seeking help with paralyzing personal challenges can be a daunting experience. Finding someone to connect with in the process of personal healing is half the battle to a solution. Keeping the person at the center of the therapeutic process is a goal for me. I have employed this approach for over 16 years of practice in Western NC. While this majestic mountain setting is a place of unique beauty it is not free of personal challenges that may need a calm and skilled approach to navigating life' s challenges.

My clients are adults experiencing challenges with addiction, anxiety, mood disorders, life transitions, trauma, grief and loss. I believe deep listening can be an antidote to the impersonality of our increasingly busy world. My therapy style is collaborative and strengths-based, helping people tap into their inner wisdom and resources. I am generally fascinated by people - their stories, challenges, interests, hopes, loves, struggles, and goals. I particularly enjoy helping people discover and change patterns that are no longer useful, uncover neglected parts of themselves, and grow into the successful people they mean to be.

On the outside people see you as "put together" because you're gritty and tough even when you don't feel it. Yet inside its impossible to narrow down your symptoms to one category because you feel ALL of the things, maybe even all at the same time. Confusion, stress, pain, heartbreak, fear, loneliness, sadness and anger are your normal. Because when you've experienced hard, difficult things in your life, those feelings ARE normal. You're tired of "faking" being ok as life has become overwhelming. When was the last time you felt confident and present, able to be ENOUGH for yourself and others? Maybe its time to feel that again.

Having provided client centered therapy for over 30 years, I have learned that no one is immune to life's difficulties, robbing some of peace and contentment in daily existence. These years have taught me the importance to work together while providing the tools needed to create a more healthy life...no matter what our environment or our pasts have dealt us. I believe that although depression and anxiety can sometimes color our lives, ,that ultimately, we have dominion over our existence. Reaching out for help is a road sometimes not taken by the faint of heart, but much less challenging with a seasoned and supportive therapist

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Asheville, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Asheville are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Asheville. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Asheville

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Asheville you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Asheville and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Asheville or family therapy in Asheville.
