I encourage clients to tell their stories in an environment of safety and acceptance. I use the psychosocial perspective that encompasses a broad range of relevant information to achieve a holistic understanding of the client in the full context of his or her history and present life. I encourage emotional expression, recognition and development of strengths and skills, spiritual exploration, and mindful acceptance. Mandala art therapy and assessment, Neuro-Integration, and Emotional Freedom Technique greatly facilitate the process if the client chooses.

If you feel blocked, thwarted, without options or direction, if you find yourself experiencing the same unhappiness again and again, then psychotherapy might be a good fit for you. My approach, in part, is for us to investigate whatever lies just outside your awareness: the beliefs, rules, & unconscious habits preventing you from creating the life you want. We will also identify rejected parts of your self so that you may befriend them and rediscover your sense of wholeness. The work can be rigorous, demanding, uncomfortable. Also warm, funny, and surprising. And often deeply rewarding. It would be my privilege to support, guide, and challenge you into the fullness of your potential.

My style and approach to psychotherapy with individuals and couples is one that is very interactive and collaborative. Together we will work to address areas of your life and relationships you are struggling with, identify goals you want to accomplish and changes you would like to make. We will build upon your strengths you bring to therapy and develop new tools and strategies to help you attain the personal growth you wish to accomplish.

Psychotherapy, the process of exploring, understanding and finding solutions for personal and situational challenges, is often very helpful for people facing a range of issues. In fact, psychotherapy has been shown to have similar effects on the brain as taking commonly prescribed medications for depression and anxiety! I have 14 years of clinical experience and have helped many adults and adolescents to work find relief from distress, deeper self-awareness and greater satisfaction in life. I strive to create a supportive and comfortable atmosphere within which people can explore sometimes difficult topics and find their way towards greater overall wellness.

During my first meeting with clients, I like to ask questions and assess what their goals are for therapy. I like to recognize both strengths and weaknesses they may bring to this process. I assess any immediate risks that may need to be addressed in order for them to get the most out of the therapy process. Finally, I strive to make sure they leave the first session with a clear idea of initial steps we will take to try to improve their situation.

Studies show that clients make the most gains in therapy when there is a “good fit” between the therapist and client. Finding the right therapist is a personal decision based on the client feeling heard and not judged. I’m a compassionate and perceptive therapist who creates a safe environment for clients to share experiences, gain insight into patterns, and learn new behaviors. I help clients acknowledge and feel proud of their progress in therapy while moving them through the more challenging aspects of our work. My goal is to help my clients feel more satisfied with themselves at work and in relationships.
