My Approach to Helping

Chances are you are here because you are feeling like your life has gotten out of your control. I know how awful it feels when life events and responsibilities overwhelm our dreams. Explore Whats Next was created to respond to your individual needs, to provide relief from emotional pain with effective, practical and long lasting results.

At Explore Whats Next the personal experience and professional expertise of our therapists, with your knowledge of yourself and motivation, combines to address the stresses that threaten to engulf you. My approach is collaborative to maximize your counseling experience. I create a comfortable place for you in a style that is compassionate, direct, and non-judgmental.

I value irreverence, enjoy a good sense of humor and believe laughter has a healing power all its own.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

If you are in transition or feel stuck, a good therapist can make a huge difference. Sometimes changes happen as a result of an obvious loss: the end of a relationship, a death, a divorce. Sometimes the transition is more subtle, even positive (getting a new job, a new baby) but can be just as much of a tar pit. You are my ideal client. I have the skills and know-how to help get you unstuck and back on solid ground.
