My Approach to Helping

I offer a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment to help you identify and let go of negative feelings, old behavior patterns, and ways of thinking that prevent you from living the life you want.

Counseling can help you experience the joy of self-acceptance and the peace of mind that comes with healthy self-esteem. In the process, you can create stronger relationships, improve the way you communicate with others, and see new possibilities for your life.

As a counselor, I consider it a privilege to work with my clients. I understand how negative beliefs, thoughts and life experiences can hold people back, making them feel stuck, sad, anxious or unfulfilled. And I understand the courage it can take to make changes.

The support that comes from a strong therapeutic relationship provides a safe place to make changes in the way you think, act or react. And even the smallest change can open the door to a more authentic and rewarding life.

More Info About My Practice

Because each person has unique experiences and goals for counseling, I combine a variety of approaches to help clients reach their objectives. These include Existential-Humanistic, Cognitive-Behavioral, Narrative, and Interpersonal therapy practices, Brief Therapy to solve specific problems, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) to help clients heal from trauma.
