As a counselor, my primary goal is to help clients work towards defining and achieving individual goals and moving along a path of healthy identity and development. The counseling process is about discovering strengths and utilizing these in the process of change and healing. I strive to be genuinely present and non-judgmental with each client. It is my intent to help clients with problem solving and change while at the same time honoring their unique background, personal values, perspectives, and experiences. While facilitating change with clients it's also important as a therapist that I learn from each counseling experience how to be a better therapist and how to use skills and theoretical techniques more effectively in future interventions. I believe that the most effective therapists recognize their own limitations and continue to remain open to change as they progress in their practice.

My approach to helping is in part based on Contemplative psychotherapy. This perspective incorporates Eastern philosophy and practice with modern Western psychology. From a Buddhist perspective, for example, attachment as well as resistance to change leads to suffering. All change takes place from within, and we are each capable of deep transformation and healing when we recognize our resistances and attachments. We alone must "walk the path," and, no matter our circumstances we can each access our own internal wisdom and strength to heal and grow.

I believe we are each inherently whole and complete, and we are more than our story of trauma, pain, and/or a particular mental health "diagnosis." In order to know this as a truth, and to change any particular aspect of our lives, requires self-acceptance and the deeper exploration of our authentic Self. This is what I strive to focus on as a therapist.
