My Approach to Helping

Overwhelmed? Don't know where to start or even how to reach out for help? Suffering in silence and trying to make it through another day or week? Trauma, high stress, pressure, and hopelessness can leave us feeling stuck, lost, and can derail us from achieving the life we intended. Taking that first step to reach out for help can seem daunting, it takes a lot of courage to begin to open up and trust. With over 21 years of clinical experience, I help clients reconnect with what’s most important to them, and understand how to overcome each obstacle that's been getting in their way. With each step, you can begin re-building the life you envision.

My focus is on delivering compassionate, efficient, targeted treatment, that is backed by science, treatment that is specific to your goals and that works. You can have the peace of mind from knowing that all interventions are done in collaboration with you, with zero judgment. Further, you can know what we are doing and why, and by knowing, understand what took you off your course, and how to get back to it.

More Info About My Practice

Of course knowledge is power, but practical skills bring change. Through the use of evidence-based treatments and processes, which harness these life skills, I can enable you to develop effective ways to overcome whatever life obstacles come your way. You can build a more equipped tool kit, packed with strategies and techniques to help you meet your goals, and achieve the results you desire.

What to Expect: First Steps
Each client is scheduled with their own 90-minute intake assessment where we thoroughly and carefully get a clear idea of what is impacting you, what you have tried to do on your own to fix it, and understand how it came about. With both information of what has been getting in your way, and where you've been trying go, we can start to route your course. Working together we can then identify your goals and help you reach them. The better and more precise the idea we have of what's going on, and why, the more accurate the intervention(s) will be.

​What to Expect: Next Steps
Following the initial assessment, after we have a good idea of what has been getting in your way, we begin to develop your individualized plan. This planning works to clarify the who and what that is vitally important to you, and what you have been intending to create or build in your life. A little different than "goals", we work to identify the direction -so to speak -that you are yearning to go in, but may not know how.

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

I am particularly adept with helping people recover from life threatening or terrifying events both from childhood and more recent situations; improving direct and assertive communication skills -or being both firm and kind; and I'm particularly good at helping clients take meaningful risks, get out of their comfort zones, to create a life worth living.
