My Approach to Helping
I have been providing counseling and therapy services in the Minneapolis and St Paul communities for over 30 years. I work to provide a safe environment where we can explore areas of your life that are difficult or may keep you from where you may want to be. You may be wondering if therapy is for you.
Therapy can be many different things to different people. You may have a specific problem you would like to address, a strained relationship or a lack of relationship or possibly a unsatisfying job. You may be dealing with something more obscure, a vague feeling that something is not right, a general sense of detachment from yourself and others. Or you may need someone to delve with you into the depth of your suffering and bear it with you. Certain experiences and discoveries can only happen in the presence of a professional and supportive other.Beginning therapy, although challenging, can be a real opportunity to better understand yourself and your choices and ultimately improve your overall quality of life. By examining our feelings, thoughts, and repeating patterns more closely, one gains insight and can be mobilized to change. I am a clinical counselor who is dedicated to working with adults, both individuals and couples, as well as adolescents, to both explore and challenge that which is getting in the way of a more meaningful and adaptive way of being with yourself and others.
