My Approach to Helping

If you are drawn to life's big questions, to wholistic approaches, to self reflection, to relational depth, to issues of meaning and purpose, & view people as too complex to fit in neat & easy categories, then the type of therapy I practice might be appealing & appropriate for you. Person-centered, depth-oriented individual psychotherapy is what I have practiced since 1995. It is an honor to aid my clients in the journey inward that can help their inner & outer lives becomebe rich and satisfying experiences of growth & discovery, that generate ever deepening self understanding, life satisfaction, & passionate engagement with life. As your therapist I can hold a light for your path as you explore the terrain of your own soul & psyche. It is a courageous adventure that can bring hope for the challenging times we live in, renewed vitality even when the climb is steep & the work of life is hard, & a lightening of fear of the inevitable uncertainties each of our lives contains.

More Info About My Practice

Depth-oriented, person centered, non-structured therapy is not right for everyone. But there are many types of directive, short term therapy types available these days that are in some ways are far less taxing, and can give good benefits. Short terms therapies are the types of therapy that in-network systems of private health insurance companies tend to prefer. They match the energies and goals of much of what we see in modern Western medicine: swift treatment geared toward very specific symptom relief. If you like structure, speed, and therapist directed processes, these type of therapies might be the way to go! if you prefer a depth oriented, facilitative therapy process with an experienced, empathic, engaged therapist who is as comfortable and helpful to you with outer world challenges as she is accompanying you as you explore your inner world, you may enjoy the kind of therapy I practice. My undergraduate double major at Wake Forest University was in Philosophy and Religion. Therapy paradigms that have had special influence on me are those of Carl Jung (archetypal psychotherapy), Victor Frankl (existential psychotherapy), Carl Rogers (person centered psychotherapy), and Virginia Satir (family systems therapy). When people ask me what my practice specialty is, I like to say "Human Being" :) !

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

My practice stays close to full. If it IS full when you call, we can have a one time consult to see if you want to be on my waiting list, & I'll let you know the likely wait time. I will also tell you if I think my practice is not the best type of therapy to meet your specific needs, and offer suggestions of whowhere to call for a therapy that could be just right for you. I continue to be amazed and delighted at how the just right clients seem to find me at the just right times. So please do feel free to contact me if you are moved to!
