Hello, and thanks for stopping by. Searching for the "right fit" in a therapist can be daunting. How do you know who is right for you? Often I have had clients tell me "I tried other therapists, but I guess I wasn't doing it right...it just seemed like I was still stuck after several months of counseling....I gave up, and am still struggling with the same self-destructive patterns!" As your therapist, It is my responsibility to make sure I am "doing it right" for you!
Other clients have stated "It was hard for me to connect with a therapist who is the same age as myself (or younger)." I believe that wisdom and intuition comes from living life experiences and challenges. I have 15+ years of experience working with couples and individuals seeking a happier, more satisfying life. Please refer to "About Me" for more a indepth biography.
My style is whole-hearted, compassionate, yet no-nonsense. I am committed to my own personal growth and healing, and have had the privilage to be mentored personally by outstanding therapists when I had my own therapy. In addition, I draw from extensive training, and creative intuition. I use an eclectic approach such as: Emotional Focus, Attachment Theory, Family-of-origin,, 12-Step (when treating addictions) as well as creative expression such as sand tray, journaling, and music.
I believe it is crucial to feel comfortable with your therapist from the very first meeting. Thus, I offer a free 30-minute meet 'n greet so you may assess for compatibility, safety, and comfortability before you choose to go forward.
I look forward to sharing your healing experience.
