"My approach with clients is grounded in a humanistic worldview that upholds the potential of each individual to grow and move forward along unique developmental paths. I strive to create an environment in which the client can explore that potential and make positive changes for the areas in their life in which they are struggling. I utilize an integrative approach, individually tailored to the needs of each client, drawing primarily from person-centered, existential, feminist, and solution-focused theories. As I am located across from W&M, I most often work with college students as they navigate the challenges this time brings."

"My counseling philosophy involves joining with you and helping you move forward. Counseling is a process whereby clients are challenged to evaluate their thoughts, beliefs and actions and then implement changes that they have been reluctant to make. In a confidential, safe, and private setting, we can focus on the present situation, family relationships, and life stressors. Therapy helps you begin to understand the sources of your distress, enhance your coping strategies, and utilize your strengths. With increased awareness, you not only put your life into perspective, but you also learn to face life-predicaments and take responsibility for your actions."

I have found that they feel anxious or depressed despite their fundamental decency and great sense of responsibility. They work hard, but feel driven - nothing they do ever feels enough. They tell me they're successful, but can't reap the rewards of their success. Sometimes, they feel empty inside. Instead of friends, they carry caseloads.
