It is my belief that all of us are experiencing pain at some level. Mainstream mental health systems are designed to 'diagnose' your pain into varying categories: "You're bi-polar", "You're depressed", "You're alcoholic". My tendency, rather than to label you, is to be curious and inquisitive about your life story, and the subsequent way that your pain is presenting itself. I can assure you that your emotional pain did not come out of thin air - you have a story to tell. I present to you an opportunity to tell your story, to me but mostly to yourself, in a safe environment that allows you to own it, process it, heal from it, change it, feel better, breathe easier, survive, and thrive.

I approach psychotherapy from an integration of interpersonal, attachment, cognitive-behavioral, and family systems theories. I will employ relevant techniques in a collaborative manner, always with your consent and understanding. Change is fundamentally a result of healing relationships. Thus my aim will be to provide an authentic, personal experience where you feel known, accepted, and empowered.

Through therapy you can uncover the confidence that's hidden inside you! It may be covered up with layers of people-pleasing, guilt, anxiety, depression, guilt or fear. I help you discover your hidden truth so that you can develop healthy relationships and create positive changes in your life. Counseling is often necessary to uncover the hidden hurts, the unmet needs, and the repressed or unexpressed emotions, which are preventing us from getting to the truth, which will set us free. In many instances, there can be no true healing and spiritual growth until we are released from painful memories and unhealthy patterns, which now interfere with our present behavior and attitude.

Psychotherapy is usually looked at as the treatment of a mental disorder through a specific technique. I view it as a way for us to work together as a team to communicate conflicts you are experiencing and bring insight into problems you struggle with. I do have several techniques, but the same approach does not work for every person, so I have broadened my style to be able to work with a wider variety of people.
