My Approach to Helping

For over 20 years I have been providing a warm, relaxed, comfortable and accepting atmosphere that my clients have noted they appreciate for their counseling sessions. I specialize in trauma informed care, and most of my experience has been in providing this for my clients. Trauma Informed means I have been educated and fully understand how possible past trauma may affect you and our sessions, and I set up my counseling practice to protect you from possible further harm, which is beneficial whether or not you have experienced trauma. I am also continually educating myself in evidence-based, research-proven methods, so I can provide the most up to date and effective counseling. You will choose the goals to work on, and we will regularly check in on those goals to ensure progress is being made.

I am currently accepting new adult clients for telehealth only appointments for counseling.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

We all like to think we start life on an equal playing field, but our genes, the physical and mental health of our family members, the parenting skills passed down from our ancestors, life events, substance issues, losses, traumas, and many, many other items affect the skills we actually have as we enter adulthood. I believe one large goal of psychotherapy is looking at these items to see what we can do now about how all these items impacted us, so that we feel more equal to others in the world - rather than feeling much less than.
