I view therapy as being one of many healing modality in which a person can shift the spiritual, mental and emotional hurts that exist with being human. I see therapy is an active process on both the part of the therapist and the client. In order to provide the healing you seek, therapy includes healthy collaboration and a capacity to be vulnerable with your therapist. I believe learning to build trust in therapy is half the task of therapy while the other half is shifting your thinking and behavior to more healthy actions and thoughts. I provide therapy that is part thinking outside the box and part traditional cognitive- behavioral therapy.

In order to find out if I would be that fit for you, I would like to tell you what I think therapy is about, what I provide as a therapist and what I expect from you.

Therapy is about turning over those moss covered stones in your mind and examining those "creepy crawlies" in your mind so they stop having power over you. Therapy is about facing your past with integrity in order to take the power out of those stories you tell yourself that keep you stuck and unhappy. Although therapy is not purely about just getting happy. It is about finding more peace within yourself to actually be true to yourself and kind to yourself.

Our sessions are set up to help you weed out the behaviors that no longer serve you and help you develop healthier and more supportive actions in your life. Therapy with me is about exploring your inner world, how you talk to yourself and how you take care of your inner landscape. It is about finding that inner spark/ drive of what gets you up in the morning. What I provide is assistance with shifting the beliefs you have about yourself that no longer serve you. I help you with developing healthy boundaries, assertive communication skills, positive actions, relaxation techniques, and compassionate self talk.
