My Approach to Helping
We focus on discovering, developing and achieving your goals and on reducing obstacles towards them. We can work quickly in a crisis or explore deeper issues. Sessions are compassionate, but also interactive and decisive.
Counselling can be be open and warm, and even humorous. We start where you are today, and help you move forward.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
Like any relationship, the chemistry with a therapists varies widely. This time, listen to your instincts as you interview. Is your body relaxed or tense? Are you being understood, or are your issues being melded to another agenda? Are you asked for your feedback, and do you feel safe enough to hurt their feelings? (I love to be criticized because it means we are moving forward.)
Usually, the right fit clicks in just a few sessions. I sense who I can help, and who to refer to a different setting. I love experiencing the healing and movement as you recover and grow.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
If you are feeling weak or flawed, we all are--you have achieved wisdom! But when these feelings cause you to doubt yourself or are used against you, then we can work on easing that pain and help you move forward. Considering therapy is a sign of strength, not weakness--that you are the healthy one, even if you feel the most confused.
