My Approach to Helping

Change comes from within, but sometimes we need an outside perspective to get a better handle on our challenges. I focus on my clients' strengths, and can help identify those unique skills, talents, inclinations, and interests that will serve them well because we often pay more attention to the forest rather than admire the incredible strengths and powers of the individual trees.

My Therapy Focus

I am especially skilled at helping adolescents and families, as well as anyone struggling with health challenges, whether those struggles are mental, emotional or physical. I aim to help my clients view their culture, family of origin, community, and peers through a new lens. In this way independence in problem solving can be more easily achieved.
