My Approach to Helping
Counseling can be difficult, so I do my best to provide a warm, comfortable and accepting atmosphere. I specialize in, and most of my experience involves, providing trauma informed care, meaning I understand how possible past trauma may affect you and our sessions, and I take steps to protect you from triggers and possible further harm. I help you to find yourself. You will choose the goals to work on, and we regularly check in on those goals so you and I can see that progress is being made.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
We all start life in families that may or may not have the skills to meet all the demands and needs of a newborn, infant, toddler, child and teen. Most parents only have their own parent's skills to work with, and many previous generations felt a parent's job was to clothe, house and feed their children. They did not understand the very important concepts of attachment, emotional needs, emotional neglect. Thus, these needs are often not met, leaving us with varying adult skills. This can cause inner and outer pain, struggles, and difficulties..
