My Approach to Helping
“Life is Difficult”. One of my favorite opening sentences from M. Scott Peck’s book, The Road Less Traveled. But…it does not always have to be. I applaud and welcome anyone seeking help with therapy and embrace the opportunity in getting to know, witness, and work with you as we join in this process and journey together. I am honored to work with clients who are willing to challenge life's situations to find that road less traveled. I have worked extensively with addiction(s), dual diagnosis, trauma, anxiety, stress, depression, grief and loss, women's issues, relationships, codependency, parenting, and life changes. I also welcome couples and families looking to address systemic and relational challenges.
My focus of therapy is one of acceptance, collaboration, and uniquely based on your needs and wants. I tend to use a systemic lens recognizing that what is presenting as the problem often is a result of larger systems at play. Intuitively and strategically, I use a wide variety of interventions to create space for change and feelings of well-being .
Connection and a strong alliance with a therapist are paramount for any change to occur. I welcome all populations to work with and for you to reach out for a free consultation to explore if we together are a good fit. I am committed to the process and looking to assist whether it is working with me or another counselor who would better meet your needs.
