People don't just want to be listened to, they want to know you "get it", so that you can really help them. When an individual feels "gotten" a connection will form and a nonjudgmental environment is created. I believe in individualizing treatment to each client's needs. I help individuals and couples address various types of issues like symptoms of anxiety, depression, and relational conflict I specialize in Mood disorders, PTSD and Family and Marital conflict.

“Our lives can become messy things. When this happens many of us invest the majority of our energy into holding our exterior lives together; while throwing the scraps to our internal life. I practice from the belief that when we are lost in the emotional weeds it is faster and less painful to have a guide who knows the ‘weedlands’ counsel us back to emotional ‘civilization’ than it is to wander in the hopes of stumbling onto a healthier path. I strive to provide counseling with warmth, peace, joy, hope, and love by accepting who you are where you are while being mindful of your hopes and goals.”

We all have potential for change and, sometimes, need a guide through the obstacles that stand in our way. These obstacles include fears and worrying, self-doubt, unresolved healing from past trauma, and being "stuck" in the past or self-sabotaging patterns. Whether your goal is to overcome fears, get "unstuck", "reset" self-defeating patterns, or learn to enjoy life again, we can make this happen together. My primary goals are to listen, understand, challenge, and help you gain a new perspective on your situation. I work with motivated adults who want to improve their relationships, work performance, and social lives.

I congratulate clients if they have taken the first step of seeking therapy/counseling. I believe that seeking treatment for oneself is a sign of health although many would associate it with pathology. Therapy is certainly not about advice but about a safe place to bring issues and put them on the table. A therapist is more of a "life witness" than a judge. Clients usually have enough judges and advice givers in their social circle. A good therapist provides resources, educational materials, positive mirroring, techniques to manage symptoms and hopefully joins with the client in acknowledging their world view.
