About me

I believe that a working relationship between a counselor and client should be trusting, honest and possess unconditional positive regard. It is important to be open and honest with each other in order to establish a solid therapeutic relationship. I am comfortable working with clients from a diversity of ages, gender identities, sexualities, cultures or experiences and believe that successful therapy features mutual respect and acceptance. My approach to counseling centers on you, working together to arrive at solutions using a variety of counseling techniques that may include mindfulness, artistic expression and other methods of self-discovery. My philosophy is that the counseling process exists to help you heal from trauma and to gain self-awareness and knowledge in order to move forward. I will challenge you to look within yourself and find positive alternatives for your life.
True and effective change in behaviors, emotions and perceptions requires work. Some changes will occur quickly and easily. Often, however, change will come slowly and will require deliberate and consistent effort from both of us. You should be aware that although counseling offers many potential benefits to you, it also poses some risks as well. You may experience uncomfortable feelings of sadness, guilt, shame and anxiety as you discuss unpleasant aspects of your life or traumatic memories. You may become frustrated as you adjust to the changes you are making and as they become a part of your life. However, when you consider the rewards of your hard work, which include gaining insight, developing healthy coping skills, and transforming your life into a more positive and joyful experience, the risks will seem small indeed.
