Psychotherapy can include individual therapy, couples therapy, or family therapy and address a variety of issues such as depression, addiction, relationship issues, or anxiety. Depending on what you are looking for in therapy, we will work together to come up with a customized treatment plan for your individual situation and your goals. I have trained in a variety of treatment methods, but find that I most commonly use mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and family systems in my work. We will explore your family history, how you grew up, and important relationships. We will also help you to develop coping strategies that use mindfulness, relaxation, and behavioral changes.

Psychotherapy can be an intimidating word to describe the process of working on your emotional well-being. I try to take the intimidation and mystery out of the counseling process with a straightforward, yet kind approach, whether I am working with individuals, couples, or families. The biggest predictor of success in therapy is the connection with the therapist. No one can be a good fit for everyone. Consider your first visit to be an audition for the therapist to see if it feels right for you. I have extensive experience working on issues of anxiety, depression, life transitions, sex and porn addictions, and trauma, to name a few. I do in-office and online counseling.

I look at therapy as building a proverbial toolbox. The tools that fill this toolbox are coping skills. Some things we try will work for you while other coping skills won't. We work together to figure out what will work best for you. You will find that psychotherapy with me addresses your primary concern, not mine! I work with you to identify goals and we work to achieve those goals.

As a collaborative therapist I view you as the expert on your life. I am your guide through the process of growth and not your leader. Through a systemic approach we will look at how relational contexts influence our construct of the world. This includes all aspects of life including influences from family, community, and society. We do not look at a mental health diagnosis as the only answer. Instead we attempt to stay away from the label a mental health diagnosis may create. Each individual experience in therapy is a unique journey based on your own particular needs.

If you're like most people, you have been thinking about counseling for awhile now. It often takes people months, sometimes years to finally make that first appointment. Congratulations. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to admit to needing help and even more to seeking it out. I continue to be honored and humbled by my clients' willingness to open up to me and allowing me to help them. What you are about to do (or are at least thinking of doing) is a decision that could profoundly change your life for the better. Let me help you to recognize your own courage, strength and other unique abilities and draw on them to see lasting change in your life.

I am a relational therapist who works from a narrative perspective. That means that I preference the knowledge and experience of the people who chose to work with me. While I can offer tools, theories and techniques to make the changes you want in your life, our work together will always be centered around your personal values and preferences. I take great care to work at a pace that is right for you and on goals that you identify. I use warmth, humor and curiosity to create an impactful therapeutic experience.

Why am I the way that I am? Why do I feel stuck struggling with the same problems? Can I overcome my tendencies? Will I ever understand what makes me tick and why I act the way that I do? People with varied experiences have found long-term psychotherapy to be beneficial. You may have had a happy childhood or experienced abuse or neglect as a child. You or a loved one may have struggled with substance abuse. You may be successful in many areas of your life, while feeling stuck in certain patterns that you would like to change. I will help you find growth and insight by exploring how your current beliefs and your family or origin experiences influence current actions and relationships.

I believe that the difficulties we encounter in our lives develop in relationship and get healed in relationship. Because of the nature of the therapeutic situation and the relationship you form with your therapist, psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to explore the ways in which you may repeat frustrating or painful experiences in your life, to relieve suffering and grow your capacity to tolerate unpleasurable (as well as pleasurable) feelings, and to experience yourself in a new way.

Often people enter therapy feeling "stuck" in some area of their life - they have tried everything they can think of and still the feeling or situation persists. It shows great determination, resilience, and wisdom that you are reaching out to a professional at this point. Together we can work to understand how this situation came about, uncover what your real wants and needs are, and realistically consider what your options are for moving forward. If you are taking the initiative to look into therapy, then I am endlessly optimistic about your ability to make the changes you'd like to see.

I work with individuals, couples, families and groups as they seek to overcome obstacles in their life and/or better understand themselves. I believe in our ability to heal, and will approach our work together from a solution oriented approach and one in which we work together as a team to both develop your treatment goals and meet them. In addition to the more traditional approach, I also use several creative methods in the journey to meet your goals - such as the use of photography, art or immersion in nature. I am also certified by EAGALA to practice Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning, and find horses incredibly gifted at helping humans find healing.

First and foremost, I am a strength based therapist. This means that I focus on your strengths as a person and recognize that you are the expert in your own life. I am here to provide insight, tools, nurturing, and guidance along your journey. My approach to therapy is three tiered and involves INSIGHT, looking at patterns from the past; PROCESS, nurturing emotions in the present; and PRACTICE, changing unwanted behaviors and relationship patterns for the future. I am compassionate, direct, warm, funny, and will gently challenge you along the way. I offer a complimentary, 30 minute consultation. It is important to me that we are a good fit and that you feel comfortable working together.

There are many approaches to psychotherapy. As a PhD psychologist and marriage–family therapist for over 28 years my approach has been highly influenced by the executive coaching and consulting work I've done in the business world where there is a high demand for results. Many clients have given feedback that I'm much more active and involved compared to therapists they've seen in the past, and they appreciate this rather than just sitting back and listening without much comment. I have a very strong desire and commitment to help every client that I see make major changes in their life leading to greater fulfillment and happiness—this is what I strive for with every individual!
