My Approach to Helping
I enjoy working with clients struggling with the challenges of interpersonal relationships and the daily and often overwhelming realities of everyday life, career, and family. I typically provide the best support for clients who want to have a collaborative relationship with their therapist. I provide a safe space for clients to heal and support them as needed through recognized therapeutic interventions and appropriate community and/or professional referrals.
My clinical experience includes a wide variety of subject matter areas including: relationship and intimate partner violence, anger management and power and control issues, substance use and addiction, trauma, military service, anxiety and depression, career, relationship and life transitions, aging in place, individuation, adulting and launching, and emotional regulation. I am also the Executive Director of New Beginnings Counseling Center.
Prior to pursuing psychotherapy, I worked for 15 years as a successful producer and executive in the entertainment industry and therefore have a unique ability to understand issues that entertainment professionals encounter.
