My Approach to Helping

The 'art of life' is my slogan and focus. Each person is uniquely crafting their optimal life and sometimes we can use some help when we get stuck. I often incorporate creative ways to assist people in findings their own answers. I enjoy working with individuals, children, couples, and families. LGBTQI friendly!

I use person-centered therapy and add creativity to our session to allow clients to really explore their current concerns. I individualize each intervention for each unique client's needs. I help you by facilitating the positive changes that you want to make in your life.

I have had 16 years of experience connecting with adolescents, college-aged populations, and people needing assistance with mood imbalances. I have also helped blended families, people wanting to heal family of origin trauma, and couples with current relationship issues. I can help you get to your goals, get unstuck and optimize your life.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

This is completely up to you. As long as the sessions are helping, then they are useful. I often encourage around three sessions in a row once a week to get started and then we check back in to see if it is beneficial for you. I have some clients that I see what I call "as needed" ( eg. once every three months). Therapy is done when you feel you are where you want to be!
