About

I'd be a good fit if you're motivated, curious, open, flexible in thought, committed to the therapy process, and willing to do hard work. I'll work hard, too. If your needs and goals are to feel calmer, have a more integrated sense of self, feel more secure and confident, to grow and expand your thought processes, to organize past life events, develop/increase spirituality, work towards independence, and promote holistic well-being through the use of evidenced-based techniques and theories, I'd be a good fit! I also love pets. I have a GSD & 3 cats. I have training and certification in pet loss and grief. I value all relationships.
I strongly believe in a biopsychosocial approach, integrated assessment, attention to cultural and spiritual/religious factors, and working collaboratively with an individual’s established treatment team. Jan '22: I am currently taking private pay only to enhance client privacy & confidentiality, increased client autonomy, & avoidance of diagnostic labels.
I respect the courage it takes to attend counseling and finds it a privilege to be of service to others. “There must be those among whom we can sit down and weep and still be counted as warriors.” ― Adrienne Rich
