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. I'll utilize my training, experience, and evidence-based approaches to help you identify 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 utilize research and tools I have acquired from training in Attachment Theory, neuropsychotherapy, Polyvagal Theory, EFT, EMDR, CBT, DBT, Family Systems Theory, Psychodynamic Theory, and a variety of other approaches to provide clients with support and tools that address their unique needs. In addition to providing psychotherapy services since 2001, I've created and facilitated numerous trainings for mental health professionals, forensic programs, and various community agencies, and have provided clinical supervision services to Master's and Doctoral students in training since 2006.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
When searching for a therapist, finding the "right fit" is critical. The therapeutic relationship must offer you a sense of safety, understanding, new perspectives, and support. I offer a free 20-minute consultation via Zoom or telephone so you may get a sense of my working style, share your goals, and ask questions to help you determine if I might be a good fit for your therapeutic journey.
