My Approach to Helping

I believe that there comes a time in almost every person's life when we feel confused or stuck, unsure of where to turn or we simply can't see the "light at the end of the tunnel". This may occur in response to many situations: a sudden loss, a challenging relationship, a career dilemma or change, adjustments to parenting, an unexpected life experience, or from an ingrained tendency to worry or to feel melancholy or depressed. Many times, as we negotiate these challenging situations, ingrained patterns from the past come back into play and we find ourselves stuck in uncomfortable patterns that we aren't sure how to interrupt. In these instances, one of the best investments that can be made is to employ the help of a well trained, compassionate professional to work with us to help us find our own answers. I am trained as both a counselor and a coach, and I utilize strategies from both disciplines to inform my work with my clients. I believe that both coaching and counseling are a collaboration between the therapist and the client, working towards goals that you have chosen in order to find a sense of greater well-being and resilience. I use an eclectic, integrative approach, relying heavily on strategies that have come from current brain research, neurobiology and from eastern philosophies, as well as from more traditional western psychological traditions.

More Info About My Practice

I am not currently on any insurance panels by choice. I prefer working in a counseling setting where it is not necessary to assign a medical diagnosis to basic human responses to common life experiences. My rates are quite reasonable and I will offer a sliding scale rate to those clients who are committed to regular therapy. In some instances, however, clients may be able to be reimbursed by their insurance companies for my services.

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

My focus is on helping my clients cultivate the traits of resilience, no matter what the circumstance. I have a fascination with how we navigate our personal journeys, and I believe that one of the best things we can all do for ourselves is to develop a resilient attitude so we can more effectively respond, as opposed to react, to life's inevitable adversities. This approach is the foundation for working with counteracting anxiety, combatting depression, bouncing back from unexpected loss, relationship issues, and many of the other situations that bring people to my counseling office.
