Life is valuable. It is too important not to feel as good as you can as you journey through life. Sometimes issues in our lives in the present come from concerns in the past. At REACH Counseling, we explore what your goals are for your life and how you can reach them all in a supportive, caring environment. We provide an atmosphere where we really listen to you and what you are going through. We help you find your internal and external resources to deal with life's concerns.

I use psychotherapy to help individuals address underlying sources of ongoing painful problems such as anxiety, depression, anger, and chronic problematic relationship patterns. This may include exploring past family dynamics and significant childhood events that have affected development. Increased understanding of the past can often lead to improvement in the present. I recommend tackling problems at their source because this allows the possibility of more permanent and deeper healing than can be achieved by simply addressing symptoms. As past events are gradually processed and resolved, we often feel that an emotional burden has been lifted; we just plain feel better!

" All emotions and behaviors make sense, we just need to understand how". I believe that most behaviors and feelings in the present can be understood in the context of past experiences. By looking at one’s early life with an eye to understanding how those experiences may have felt to a young child, the therapeutic process helps to develop self compassion and a broader perspective. This curious and non-judgmental process builds self-confidence and empowers the client to make desired changes. My approach to Psychotherapy is collaborative and builds on mutual trust. The therapist guides, the client travels, and together they gain clarity to strengthen the client's Sense of Self.

Research has shown that an empathic, nonjudgmental relationship with a client is the most important element in successful therapy. My approach to psychotherapy has been strongly influenced by my experiences as a client in therapy. My career as a counselor has always involved a deep commitment to developing my knowledge and skills in a variety of therapies, while also being creative and innovative with each client. While in a session the client is always the focus of my attention, as we work together to find solutions to their problems. I avoid formality, interacting with the client candidly as an equal, typically relaxed, and even humorous at times, without compromising my professionalism.

I create a safe, warm, caring atmosphere so that you can share your painful, feelings of hurt, anger, depression, anxiety, sadness, helplessness and hopelessness. You may also be experiencing guilt, fear, shame or grief and serious relationship (marital, family, parent-child, partner, career) problems. I can help you shift from this state of emotional and mental darkness to the experience of emotional and mental light. I can help you let go of “shoulding” on yourself, unrealistic expectations, perfectionism, self attack thoughts, loss and the sense you are ineffective, unworthy, incompetent or deficient in some way. In the process you will learn to be more forgiving and compassionate to
