My Approach to Helping

People must feel able to manage their emotions, so that they do not feel controlled by those emotions. Many people believe they are bad, weak, or flawed when they experience pain. There is no shame in seeking help—even if someone else tells you to get help. It’s no different to seek pain for emotional struggles than it is to see a doctor when you break a leg. Seeking help shows you are being thoughtful and deliberate.

I have helped people regain control over their emotions and lives. When people suffer from pain or feel confused, they are susceptible to anger, fear, and helplessness. This often comes with a sense of directionlessness and apathy.

More Info About My Practice

As a therapist, I offer support, education, and comfort to improve and maintain functioning. I help people feel “normal” again. Most of my clients worry at first aboutwhether they are normal. The reality is that emotional pain and suffering are unavoidable parts of life as a human being.

I have enjoyed this work for more than two decades. I find that in the midst of emotional pain, there is also a chance for increased awareness and honesty. This shift offers a chance at a better life.

My training and work have focused on cognitive and behavioral therapy to help people regain control over harmful emotions, behavior, and thoughts that keep people tracked in a cycle of suffering and harmful choices.

My goal is to educate and understand my clients, supporting them to unleash their unique human strengths and gifts.
