My Approach to Helping

People encounter challenges in life. When the challenges become overwhelming and the ability to resolve them independently seems unattainable, therapy can help. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I work collaboratively with clients to identify concerning issues, create goals, process emotional pain and overcome difficulties in life. The work is designed to empower people to engage life in a more positive and productive way.

With almost 20 years of counseling experience, I help those whose lives have been impacted by Addictions, Eating Disorders, Depressive Disorders, Bipolar Disorders, Anxiety Disorders and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders. I maintain a practice designed to help people navigate a wide variety of mental health disorders, emotional difficulties, and transitional life events.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Sometimes I receive a call from a parent about a child, an adult about a spouse or a potential client themself, expressing being on the fence about wanting to enter into therapy. One of my strengths is being able to meet people where they are. I do not see resistance in clients; I see struggles a client may be having that are imperative to explore and work through. I have respect for a client and their ambivalence in the process. I do not have expectations or judgments of clients nor do I require that clients start therapy being committed to change. I meet a client where they are. We go from there. At a safe pace. Exploring any concerns or hesitations along the way.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

The therapeutic alliance as absolutely central to the work that is done and the outcomes that are achieved in counseling. I look to create an environment and a relationship with my clients that allows safety, promotes a sense of compassion and empathy and fosters trust. When the therapeutic relationship is strong and the trust is solid, insightful and productive work can be done.
