My Approach to Helping

I believe in you. My own personal experience and the experience of working with others over the years has taught me that we all have the capacity to change and grow, when we wish to do so. I’m here to support you in that process of self-discovery and lead you to greater awareness of who you are and acceptance of yourself. I take a holistic approach to my work with clients as I do believe in a mind-body connection, and research supports this theory.

In our counseling work together, we will create space in which you can explore your values, thoughts and emotions in order to create the authentic life experience you desire. My work is mostly non-directive, and based on humanistic theory. I draw from Emotionally Focused Therapy in my work with couples.

My areas of expertise are in working with life transitions, relationship issues, divorce, blended families, living with health conditions, fertility challenges, career concerns, substance abuse, body image, and grief. I see primarily adults, and work with both individuals and couples in my practice. Call me for a free initial 20-minute phone consultation.

My Role as a Therapist

I am here to help you along the path. You are in charge of your life, and I'm simply here to help guide you through a process of listening and reflecting what I hear as your deepest values and needs. I enjoy using a multitude of approaches as required along the way. With a background in mindfulness and meditation, I offer a quite space for you to share your troubles, concerns, and desires. Additionally, I find that my greatest strength is in helping people through life transitions, but many continue to stay on as they find the regular session to be a space where they can reflect and carve out time to have the focus on them.
