My Approach to Helping
I specialize in helping people identify what is holding them back and how to move toward what they want in life. My focus is on creating a safe, open-minded, and welcoming environment for all clients along their path toward self-discovery. I enjoy working with people who have a curiosity about how their personal, familial, and cultural history affects their present lives. Together, we look at this closely in order to gain insight into why they do what they do so that they are able to open up to a greater sense of inner freedom and ability to live a more fulfilled life.
I will work collaboratively with you to analyze areas you would like to change, manage stress, clarify goals, and help you to modify unwanted patterns of behavior. My specialty areas are anxiety, relationship, and family issues, depression, sexuality and gender identity issues, trauma and life transitions. I especially enjoy working with the LGBTQIA community, people in "non-traditional relationships", parents, and young adults.
Caring, warm, and non-judgemental, I start by truly listening to understand your concerns, and jointly, we will come up with an approach that fits your needs. I am here to support and guide you through your journey to enhance your life. We will work together to understand your life more fully so that you are better able to live the life you want to live.
