My Approach to Helping

As a therapist working with individuals, couples, and families, I provide clients a brave space to begin to develop their best version of self and relationship. Using a solution-focused, strengths-based approach, we can work together to uncover your unique resources, talents, and gifts and apply them towards building a life that represents your best hopes. I believe that every individual has everything they need within them to enact the changes they desire. Our power lies in nourishing each of our inner superheroes to change the narrative from one of pain and despair to one of hope and agency.

Our past experiences, present interactions, beliefs, and expectations shape our current reality. By building an awareness of this in therapy, we can work towards understanding and accepting who we currently are on our journey towards who we are becoming. We all desire to thrive and find meaningful connection with others. Transformation lies in changing the lens through which we experience ourselves and others.

In helping my clients, I often integrate practices from solution-focused brief therapy, mindfulness, personality theory, attachment theory, and narrative therapy. Depending on the presenting problem, I incorporate techniques from my own continuing education and clinical research.

More Info About My Practice

I specialize in helping people rediscover themselves and their relationships through resourceful conversations. As a solution-focused brief therapist, you are likely to leave our first session feeling more hopeful than you thought possible and eager to begin noticing the change at work in your life.

Change is possible. Your hoped-for future can become your present. You can move forward in your life with the certainty that you have every skill and talent necessary to create the best version of yourself and relationship. Call or email me today if would like to begin a very different conversation than the one you’ve been having.

I welcome ALL individuals and couples in my work here at Rock Springs Positive Coaching, Caring, and Counseling.

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

Sometimes it can feel like no matter what we do or how hard we try, life kicks us down. You work hard to get into a new career only to discover it isn?t what you thought it would be. You find the love of your life but years into the relationship, love has been replaced by mind-numbing routine, unresolved arguments, and obligatory sex. Or maybe the joy, passion, and excitement you used to experience in your life has been lost, and it feels like a piece of yourself is missing. You want to be whole, to be 100% yourself again. You desire to feel confident in your ability to stay on track and accomplish your goals and to experience a profound sense of pride and personal power. If these things were to happen you could face the uncertainty of life with a sense of calm, connection to your purpose, and zen-like contentment. If this resonates with you and you are ready to experience something different, I hope you will call me.
