My Approach to Helping

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 25 years experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. Over that time, I have also worked as a clinical supervisor, trainer, and a teacher of master's level counseling students at three local universities.

I believe we all strive to feel a sense of belonging and to master any task before us. I view emotional, behavioral and relationship problems as distress signals indicating that important healthy strivings are not being realized. Somehow, things got off track and current attempts at reaching them are not working. Repetitive, unsatisfying patterns of interaction can result, leaving everyone involved feeling discouraged, isolated and stuck. This is usually when folks seek counseling for themselves or their family members.

My approach to counseling is to listen carefully and engage all as full partners in the process to rediscover healthy strivings within the presenting problem; create a clear vision of what is desired; and collaborate on strategies to find the path forward. This process involves tapping into each person's internal wisdom, motivations and other resources. I will also encourage the participation of family members and significant others whenever possible. I have found that this contributes greatly to quicker and longer lasting positive results.
