As a therapist, I see my role as one of helping you change the things you want to change, teaching you some ways to do this and helping explore your life. Old ways can be changed, new ways can be learned. Looking at the way you think about you and your individual experiences, using methods such as CBT and alternative techniques, is part of my therapy work. I am not married to one particular style, but to what works and is effective for you as an individual. I work individually, with families or couples, and with teens. I am easy to talk to.
I enjoy working with all people. My ideal clients are those who want to be self aware, mindful and confident; those who want their lives to reflect their values and beliefs. Helping clients to recognize and understand the mind-body connection and to understand how thoughts directly affect behavior is my passion. All people are a work in progress. Life situations can sometimes be extremely difficult and counseling can be a helpful tool in progressing beyond and through certain challenges. Helping clients to develop healthy coping and problem-solving skills is my specialty.
