It takes internal strength to entrust your interior life to another person, so I view counseling as a privilege. I enter into the relationship listening deeply for the concerns clients bring to our time together. I will work with you to set goals for our time together understanding you already have some strengths and skills to help yourself. I work with a broad range of clients (individual, couples, and families) from age 5 to 85. Common concerns I see are grief and loss, depression, anxiety, stress, and premarital/marital/couples/family concerns . I have also been trained in the assessment of learning disabilities, and a portion of my practice dealt with helping adults, youth, and children in navigating work and educational issues.
I acknowledge our emotional and mental well-being connects with our physical, spiritual, family, community, and vocational/educational life; therefore, I look at the whole person. I integrate a variety of approaches to counseling depending on the concerns you bring to the counseling process. Common approaches are client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, dialectical-behavioral, mindfulness, and acceptance-commitment therapies.
I look forward to working with you as you entrust me with the sanctuary of your soul.
