My Approach to Helping

Life can be overwhelming. Problems can pile up and leave us feeling frustrated and defeated. We may have been holding things inside for months, years or even decades. We come to a place of anxiety, depression, drugs and alcohol dependence, relationship conflict, or isolation. The ease and vitality of life that we once experienced seems too far removed. At the worst, we lose all perspective and feel hopeless. We don't want to feel this way anymore. Still, it can be so hard to take that first step and reach out for help.

As your therapist I will help you to navigate your way to a state of congruent, purposeful and self-directed living. I will work to empower you to shed your ineffective thoughts, feelings and behaviors. We all have them, but we can learn to step-back, observe and chose responses that lead us towards our goals.

I have a welcoming and light demeanor. I am easy to talk to, validating, and supportive. I welcome a call or an e-mail from you at any time. We can schedule a time to talk briefly on the phone and if you like we can schedule a therapy session

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Providing therapy is an honor that I hold with the utmost respect and care. It takes courage to reach out for help. I work hard to ensure that I make that process as positive and effective as I can. My approach to therapy is one of positive regard, non-judgment and genuineness. I have a warm, welcoming and light presence. I consider being a part of my clients' journeys a privilege.
