I hope to help you explore the origins of “outdated,” unhelpful beliefs, coping mechanisms, and relational patterns that are no longer ideal and to consider more adaptive and healthy alternatives.

**Accepting New Clients** Change is possible, but it doesn’t happen overnight. Change happens in the small, countless decisions we make daily. It would be my honor to be a part of your journey. My goal in counseling is to create a warm, welcoming and honest space for you to process, develop new skills and create greater resiliency. It can be challenging and intimidating to start the counseling journey. In today’s world, technology has made it easier than ever to connect and yet we feel lonely at the same time. Nothing can replace the invaluable human connection formed in therapy.

Difficult or traumatic experiences can impact how you see the world and yourself. These experiences can make you feel afraid in everyday situations and disconnected from the person you used to be. Sometimes these experiences make people forgetful or think too much about the things that they want to forget. These thoughts may be even more persistent now due to COVID-19 and social isolation.

Hi, thank you for reading about how I provide counseling to people. I believe that people argue because they do not feel understood or feel that anyone is listening. There are similarities between teenagers and couples in how they argue. "If this person would just listen to what I am saying things would be better." We want to be understood, cared for and loved. Many people these days do not feel any of these. I work with people so that they are able to attain the feelings that they desire. I have had the pleasure to work with people who feel like things are impossible to fix and to help them feel better.
