Psychotherapy is an intimidating word. It makes me think of white-coated clinicians with clip boards that say, “I see,” a lot. “Psychotherapy” is not very warm sounding when it comes to emotions. I prefer the word "Interpersonal". I believe that humans have been wounded through relationship and are seeking how fix that woundedness. I offer counseling that is interpersonal processing via a healthy relationship. In other words: Being known. Being known by another human being has incredible impact on healing the brain and heart. I have personally experienced the power of another person saying, “I actually can’t fix you, but I’m here, in this darkness with you. You're not alone."

Psychotherapy is a process by which you examine your thoughts, feelings, actions, and relationships. With the assistance of a skilled professional, you will evaluate where problems exist, or where changes are likely to improve your life satisfaction and overall psychological adjustment. You can then learn how to make the necessary changes that needed to achieve a better life adjustment and satisfaction.

For all of us, our past informs and shapes our present and also our future. This can happen in many ways that we do not even realize. If you are having emotional difficulties, it may be helpful for you to look at the ways you are being hindered by unresolved past issues. People often deal with these problems with surface "fixes" that end up being only temporary. I will help you to look not only at these difficult and possibly traumatic root causes, but also your unique strengths that can be used to move you forward and bring meaning to each part of your life.

My approach to therapy is to first listen deeply, and then to be an active partner in our work. I will reflect back to you what I hear, make suggestions about things you can do to change your situation or to feel better, offer different perspectives, and point you in the direction of other resources, such as reading, podcasts, programs, etc. My approach to working with you will be tailored specifically to your situation, to your needs, since no two people are the same. My job is not to judge you, rather I am a professional guide on your journey to greater life satisfaction!
