My Approach to Helping

Whatever your health and wellness objective, my focus is empathetically listening and exploring new ways to reduce anxiety, frustration or sadness. I team up with both men and women individually and I also work with couples.

For individuals new to therapy or returning to the process, we'll work together in a compassionate and confidentially-safe place. Know you'll have in me an advocate who is committed to your best interest.

For couples in all relationship stages, I'll partner with the both of you to enhance communication, discuss where the relationship is at and where you would like it to go. Gottman, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) are methodologies we will use to broaden your abilities to express preferences and feel understood and respected. In cases where your partner may not initially be open to coming to counseling, please know that individual marital therapy or simply individual therapy is an option for you.

More Info About My Practice

Conscious Counseling & Coaching is a small, solo practice that synthesizes my previous corporate business experience with years as a non-profit trauma counselor, a solution-focused brief therapy Employee Assistance Program (EAP) counselor and a clinical therapist in a group practice.

Committed to overall health and well-being, daytime, evening and Saturday availability is offered. I respond personally to each email and phone call and invite you to a free initial phone consultation to discuss your goals and answer any questions you may have about my approach or the process.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I've always loved puzzles and appreciate looking at the big picture while compassionately puzzling out more manageable pieces as solutions. I consider it a great honor to be invited into someone else's experience and am dedicated to their overall wellness. I believe mindfulness, humor and creativity are wonderful companions for happier moments.
