My Approach to Helping
I view successful therapy as an experience where your strengths and values are supported while you navigate toward your chosen life direction. You may struggle with tuning into your needs leading to challenges in maintaining the right balance. You may be working toward cultivating a more positive relationship with yourself. You may be experiencing anxiety due to painful and stressful life experiences. You may be feeling destabilized due to isolation, lack of structure, or self-doubt.
Throughout my career and life, I gained valuable insight into the human capacity to be amazingly resilient when adequate supports are available. I believe that our spirit knows how to heal and I will partner with you as you align your life with your aspirations and pursue your goals. I have a collaborative style and my demeanor is personable, nonjudgemental, and empathetic and I provide a supportive space with warmth, humor (yes, humor), encouragement, and gentle challenging.
As a member of the social justice and healing community for over 25 years, I have a genuine affinity for people which comes through in my counseling style.
