My Approach to Helping
What is therapy like with me? One part understanding, one part education, and one part action (that’s your part) with a healthy dose of humor and banter. Therapy does not have to be devoid of personality! As a consumer, I had experiences where I did not feel seen, heard, or understood. Know this. You will be seen, heard, and understood with me. While change can be difficult…it is possible.
Working with clients struggling to navigate adjustment to life events including; relationships, family, education, coming-out, gender + transition, or early sobriety is a focus. With support, you can achieve your life goals. I also have a knack for Career Counseling after spending 20+ years in Human Resources & Recruiting in addition to brief solution-focused therapy for personal & work injury clients.
