My Approach to Helping
Anxiety, depression, traumatic experiences, grief, and the pains of life and marriage exist. Still, I prefer to look at what is going right with people and relationships. I believe each person has unique insight, strengths, and the power to overcome hurts. I commit to working with you to discover those abilities find freedom and healing.
My practice is informed by systems therapy and contains solution-focused and narrative qualities. My goal is to create space for conversations, co-create meaning, and work to cultivate your best hopes for the future.
