Psychotherapy is a collaberative process between client and therapist to bring about better emotional, mental, physical and spiritual healing. I will seek to develop a working and professional RELATIONSHIP with you which is paramount to all counseling processes in order to help you reach your goals. Reseach shows that psychotherapy is an effective way to treat an array of issues and can sometimes be more effective than medication. When medication is necessary, combining it with psycotherapy can yield much greater results.

One of the most frequent complaints I hear about therapists is that they “just listen” to the client’s problems, and feedback or “reflect” what the client says, with little or no suggestions as to how to help the client solve their problems. While there is tremendous benefit in hearing and understanding the problem, clients need more than “just listening.” I will work with you to help identify solutions that align with your individual beliefs, values, and life experiences in order to ensure a highly effective therapeutic outcome and a fulfilling life.

I pracatice holisitc therapy that engages mind, body and spirit. I try to create an accepting environment that feels safe and conducive to honest open conversation. I also help clients identify their inner "parts" and to engage in a useful dialogue with them. Healing comes from insight, selfawareness and behavioral change. We work together to make sure these changes are occuring inorder for the client or couple to have a more enjoyable life with successful relationships.

I offer individual couple counseling if you want to improve your relationship, but your partner isn't yet on board for counseling. Of course, marriage and couple counseling is best done with both partners, but you don't have to wait. Through counseling you'll gain a richer understanding of your relationship and will take that clarity, energy, and renewed commitment into interactions with your partner. Each addition moment of connection or conflict that's avoided contributes to enriching your relationship. Partners form non-conscious patterns... which become like ruts in a dirt road. Even one person discovering these habits can shift them and create a more fulfilling relationship.

Many people report experiencing some relief after just one psychotherapy session. A psychotherapist offers you immediate support and a viewpoint from someone who is not emotionally over-involved. That's why a psychotherapist can be helpful-- they do not have an personal emotional investment in the decisions that the client makes. A caring psychotherapist genuinely wants a client to be healthy and happy, but does not try to persuade a client to make a particular decision (unless a matter of safety is at stake).
