My Approach to Helping

Most of us find ourselves feeling lost or struggling from time to time, and we may become overwhelmed, discouraged and even hopeless. We often spend time, energy and money on other people or things in the hope they will bring joy or satisfaction to our lives. But investing in our own personal growth has the most potential to produce the improvements we may otherwise seek from external sources.

I am an interactive therapist who engages in a collaborative and direct manner, and I bring my authentic self to the therapeutic relationship. I'll utilize my training and experience to assist you in identifying ways to improve your quality of life. I can help you learn to reconnect with your innate strengths, determine your personal goals, and develop new tools for living that improve the way you relate to yourself and others.

I've also facilitated trainings for mental health professionals, forensic programs, and various community agencies for nearly 20 years.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

When searching for a therapist, finding the "right fit" is extremeIy important. The therapeutic relationship must offer you a sense of safety, understanding, and support. I offer a free consultation via Telehealth or phone so you can get a sense of my style, share your goals, and ask the necessary questions to help you determine if I might be appropriate for your therapeutic journey.
