My Approach to Helping
My job is to create a safe, trusting, and inviting place for your therapy to happen. Whether you are seeking help with past trauma, having problems with mood, or just feeling stuck in your life, therapy should offer ideas, insights, and experiences that can help to change the narrative of your life. I believe that every client has their own unique wisdom and perspective; changes in one's life occur when these skills are explored and assisted to become drivers for new thoughts and behaviors. After more than 20 years of helping clients in this process, I feel I am qualified to assist in a wide range of challenges. Having raised a child on the Autism Spectrum to become a fully functioning adult I can assist both families and young adults navigating the path into adulthood. My early training was in a family therapy training program and therefore I feel competent working with both families and couples. I also have many years of treatment experience working with addiction and addicts in all phases of recovery; I believe abstinence is only one part of the recovery process.
