My Approach to Helping

Learning is an essential key to navigating yourself and those you are in a relationship with. Yet, it is only when the mind (understanding) is integrated with the body (intuition and a felt sense of experience) that healing and movement can be found. In my practice, the passion drives the ship and reason navigate us safely through the water. The goal is a well-traveled life that arrives at a safe destination we are happy to find. My space is carpeted, couched and done from the warmth of my home office - a comfortable setting for your work to be done.

More Info About My Practice

In addition to my private practice, I currently work with Jumping Mouse Children's Center where I see children (3-12yr) and their families. I find that play, the imagination, and the depth of human experience is essential to waking up in the morning. I hold that you are the best person in your life to find what you need most.

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

I am specifically skilled at working through an experience and coming to an articulation of its meaning; either through diagrams, images, words, or intuitive recognition. You are trustworthy and can find the skill to be the most reliable support in your life. My skill and goal is to help you navigate yourself or relationship with clarity and confidence.

My Therapy Focus

My focus in therapy is relationship. This includes the client-therapist relationship, how you relate to yourself, and how you relate to others. The way you work with yourself and others is at the root of who you are and what is possible.
A marked difference in my approach to relationship therapy is my belief that strengthening a relationship will in itself resolve many of the unwanted patterns and difficulties. In this way I seek to secure the relationship so that safe independence and boundaries can be found. This is as true with a family or couple, as it is between you and your thoughts, emotions, and dreams.
