My Approach to Helping

You have the ability to make positive life changes, heal, and grow.

I strongly believe each person has the inherent capacity to foster personal well-being and wholeness. However, when we encounter major life obstacles, we may also benefit from additional guidance and support. Each person reacts to challenges in his or her own unique way, and there are a variety of methods for addressing presenting issues. Nevertheless, by working together in a supportive, trusting therapeutic relationship we can find effective solutions to help you live the life you really want.
I recognize that seeking professional assistance is not easy. I know making this decision takes real strength and courage.

I will listen to you, help you explore your personal circumstances, guide you as you discover your life goals, and provide the support you need to reach them. By searching for your ideal therapist, you have taken the crucial first step toward long-term health. I view it as an honor to walk with you on your journey to a vital, healthy, and fulfilling life.

The people in my care describe me as empathic, active, and nonjudgmental. As treatment progresses, I will acknowledge the whole you-
including your cultural background, family situation and social interactions. As therapy is highly experiential, we will employ practical skills that will help us determine which tools are best suited to get you where you need to be. I utilize a range of mindfulness and visualization techniques to help you identify, explore, and overcome your current challenges.

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

The meaning of the word disorder in latin means "without order". Struggle often results in our normal order, or homeostasis, becoming "out of order" or imbalanced. As we experience difficulty in our life, each human adjusts the best way we know how. My view is that symptoms and "disorders" are merely an individual's best effort at coping with something that has happened to them. With this view of human suffering I have come to appreciate that every human is doing the very best they are able with the skills and knowledge they have in order to survive and continue in their daily life. Therapy can assist with identifying our ways of coping, keeping what is workable and healthy and changing coping which leads to further suffering in the short or long term. Through addressing our processes which keep us stuck in imbalance, we can build new processes and come to restore balance in ourselves and our lives.
