My Approach to Helping

I am a here and now centered therapist. I am a trained suicide and crisis interventionist. I have extensive experience working with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, family related distress, separation, divorce, and relationships issues. I also work with couples who are having difficulty with communication, infidelity, and issues of trust. My main purpose is to give support, understanding, and help clients improve their effective communication skills, encourage healthy coping behaviors and reduce the distress and discomfort that brought them into counseling, so they can continue on their personal path of growth.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

In my practice, I work with people from all walks of life. I enjoy working with people from different racial, economic, sexual, religious and gender backgrounds. Everyone has a right to be heard and understood. I am passionate about helping people relieve the stress and discomfort they are living with, so they can lead more full and abundant lives.

I also work with individuals and couples who have experienced trauma in their lives or who are going through life transitions such as ending a long term relationship, changing careers, academic pressures, or going through an unforeseen life or family crisis. I enjoy helping people discover themselves and uncover new plans, hopes, and dreams.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Therapy allows people to give words to their hurt, frustration, and anger in an environment that is safe and non-threatening. Therapy also gives people different paths to healing, forgiving, and letting go of shame and guilt. Last, but not least therapy has the power to help people see new possibilities for themselves and their families.
