"I love working with people who are ready to explore their lives. Counseling is an opportunity to reflect and make value-based changes. Most people come to me because they feel anxious, sad, or stuck. By focusing on mindfulness and emphasizing feelings, change can come gracefully. Other times, change requires a deep commitment and more structured interventions. I save room in my practice for those with greater needs but sometimes can only offer consultation services. Finally, some people prefer psycho-education and a focus on the basics. For those individuals I am happy to provide short-term, solution focused counseling."
